    What's your definition of AI? Artificial General Intelligence? In that case, sure, we're not 'real AI', but that also means no one else is (or will be for quite some time).

    If you mean using a bunch of advanced algorithms to generate ~design~ based on unknown input, then I'd say we are. I spent the day working on an artificial neural network to choose fonts; good enough for me :)

      I'm very happy for you and your work, and wish you success. Your product seems amazing, and I can't wait for you guys to clear out all those menial design jobs out there — joking :)

      However, words have meaning.

      Artificial Intelligence means the exercise of thought by an artificial being such as a machine.

      While having an artificial network choose a typeface might be enough for you, it's not what one would call Artificial Intelligence, since I'm not sure your neural network exercised thought. Maybe it's something you ought to appropriately call machine learning?

      Anyway it's not important, good luck!
