Adobe Unveils Acrobat AI Assistant for PDFs; Can Generate Summaries, Answer Questions


Adobe has finally launched generative artificial intelligence (AI)-powered features for its Acrobat and Reader platforms. The company, called Acrobat AI Assistant, first unveiled the AI ​​features in beta in February 2024. After spending nearly two months in testing, it is now available to users globally. The AI ​​Assistant is available on both desktop and web clients. Additionally, Adobe has also highlighted that the company is working on a text-to-video AI model.

Making the announcement, Abhigyan Modi, senior vice president, Adobe Document Cloud, said, “Whether doing taxes, collaborating on contracts, or creating and sharing research papers, Acrobat is the trusted platform for PDFs. The Acrobat AI Assistant empowers billions of people to go from reading and interacting with documents – enabling them to gain insights and formatting and sharing content from all types of digital documents – quickly and easily.

According to Adobe, the Acrobat AI Assistant is a generative AI-powered conversational engine that integrates with Reader and Acrobat workflows. It can assist users in many ways. The chatbot can recommend questions based on the content of the PDF as well as answer the user's questions. It can follow conversational speech, like major AI chatbots. The AI ​​assistant can also generate summaries from long documents in easy-to-read formats.

Additionally, the Acrobat AI Assistant can also generate citations using a custom attribution engine. This can help users verify the source of answers given by AI. The company claims that the AI ​​also provides clickable links to find information in long documents. The summary can be easily shared using the copy button provided in the interface. On data privacy, Adobe says that no customer document content is stored or used to train AI assistants without their consent.

In addition to the familiar web and desktop interfaces, the company has also made the Acrobat AI Assistant available in beta on Acrobat Reader Mobile. This feature also supports voice commands. Additionally, users can also find AI chatbots in Acrobat's existing Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge extensions.

Acrobat AI Assistant will be available to users with the free Reader or paid Acrobat for Personal plans if they purchase a new AI Assistant add-on subscription that starts at $4.99 (roughly Rs. 420) per month. Adobe says this is early access pricing and it may increase after June 5.
