A brain-machine interface (BMI) is a device that translates neuronal information into commands capable of controlling external software or hardware such as a computer or robotic arm. However, building these devices is a technical and ethical nightmare.

Adobe Vs Canva

In 2019, Adobe launched Adobe Creative Cloud, a set of 20+ applications and services for graphic design, video editing, and web development. It is a monthly/annual subscription-based service accessible from the internet.

Adobe Creative Cloud takes a hybrid approach. Though some applications work on the cloud, most of them have to be installed on-premise due to their memory-intensive nature.

Meanwhile, SaaS-based applications have taken the industry by storm. Canva is a good case in point. This Australia-based company is now emerging as Adobe’s primary competitor.
