PDF this file format is approaching its 30th birthday, PDF wasn't designed entirely for modern mobile devices, So Adobe've been trying to improve PDF experience on smartphones. This morning, Adobe introduced a feature, It's called "fluid mode ". Liquid Mode use Adobe AI engine Sensei to analyze the and automatic reconstruction for mobile devices. And it uses machine learning to analyze PDF files, Re-optimize and display for smaller smartphone screens.
Through months of quiet testing, Liquid Mode are publicly available today in Adobe iOS and Android versions of the application and plan to bring it to the desktop later. Adobe cto Abhay Parasnis also told me that they have been developing a API, to allow similar features to be extended to non- Adobe applications in the future.
When you open a PDF file in the Acrobat Reader, the application will try to determine whether it can work with Liquid Mode; if so, the Liquid Mode button will light up. Click the button and the file is sent to the Adobe document cloud for processing. Once done, users can adjust font size and line spacing according to their preferences. Liquid Mode will use the title / structure it detects to create a clickable directory where it doesn't exist, allowing you to jump quickly from chapter to chapter. the whole process is non-destructive, so the original PDF does not actually change anything. Exit liquid mode, and you return to the original unmodified PDF.
In an extracrunch interview in January, Adobe outlined plans to bring artificial intelligence and machine learning into the company. Among them, liquid mode is only the first step for Adobe's Sensei AI engine to understand documents. Adobe continues to develop, hoping that users will be able to hand over a 30 page PDF to Sensei, allowing it to return a summary that is only a few pages long.
