Powerful computer applications today allow manipulating and fabricating digital objects in unimaginable ways. However, these tools are often sophisticated and very difficult to use. One of the challenges in graphics and design today is to create simpler tools that allow even novice users to use computers more naturally for photographs and 3D objects manipulations. In this talk, I will present several such efforts that use AI methods to allow users to concentrate on creativity while designing. The key factor in all these works is utilizing humans specifically for semantic, high-level tasks that are simple for them but extremely difficult for machines while utilizing the machine and AI for tasks that are harder and tedious for humans.
