For example, imagine you’re a marketer and you need a beautiful ocean scene as the featured image of your latest blog post. Instead of creating the graphic in Photoshop or searching through stock photo sites for trite images, Accomplice enables you to simply type “beautiful ocean scene.” Within minutes, the AI-powered platform will create a one-of-a-kind, royalty-free image for your article.

A former Google employee, Howell has been a designer and developer for more than 15 years. Howell has been waiting for years for AI to develop enough to employ the technology in design and for artistic creation.
“We’re entering the stage of humanity where almost everything we create will be aided by machines and AI in some way – just like we went from analog to digital 40 years ago,” he said “Our greatest strength will be
in learning how best to work alongside AI and in our ability to edit the signal from the noise while still finding a way to bring our tastes and point of view into everything we create.”
