2019 : Top Ai & ML Creative Automation Tools

Karn Malhotra

Last January i wrote a post on the ‘‘Top Creative Automation Tools : 2018’’ — with 2x the number of reads and 3x the number of fans compared to other posts — logically, we have this years edition :)

Why the ‘Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning’ focus? Mainly because we’ve now moved into that space with Outlined. This year i’m going to write more actively about this; suggestions/questions are most welcome.

To maintain consistency, i’ve stuck to similar headers as last years post. Enjoy!
