Summit Sneaks- A glimpse into the Future

At Summit sneaks with host Kristen Bell, we had a fun peek into the future of digital experience via research projects and tests in Adobe Labs. In sneaks, we envisioned a world of highly satisfied consumers and powerful marketers. The host took a ride into the future where AI, machine learning, computer vision, and other technologies are ruling the world with these projects:

  • Project KPI Pop
  • Project Winning Scores
  • Project Design Decoder
  • Project Demand Detector
  • Project Right Sized
  • Project Quick connects
  • Project Style blast

As Kristen said “None of these concepts are committed to releasing but some of 60% will make into products in one form or another”, but it is worth waiting.
