So they've made a more complicated scanner
Wrap the obligatory "AI" around it, and attach a 3D printer and voilà ! you have a grant and a project.
But there is no AI in there. The color analysis can be done in Photoshop and, unless I've missed that news, I don't think Adobe is crowing about how it crammed AI into Photoshop.
So it's a program that inputs an image, does some pre-programmed fiddling and outputs said image. Don't try impressing me with the mixing of inks, that's something that dumb inkjets do a hundred times a day.
I'm not saying this is a useless project, don't get me wrong, but there's even less AI in this one than usual.
