The Dubai-based airline, Emirates, has launched a new check-in facility at the ICD Brookfield Place in the Dubai International Financial Centre featuring the world’s first robot check-in assistant.

The robot, named Sara, can assist customers with a wide range of services, including bookings, check-ins, and luggage drop-offs between 08:00 and 10:00 daily.

After unveiling the new service, Adel Al Redha, COO of Emirates, noted, “It is a state-of-the-art facility, and it is the next level of privilege that we can offer our customers. People can avoid busy periods at the airport and minimize queuing”.

The robot check-in service went operational on Thursday, April 27, and allows customers to drop off luggage as soon as 24 hours and up to 4 hours before a flight, allowing a leisurely and stress-free airport experience.

Emirates flyers can also use the check-in service for expert advice and offers on popular destinations, as well as to manage bookings, purchase upgrades, and choose their preferred seats.

The robot check-in service premiered at Emirates HQ earlier this year and can scan passengers’ faces and match them to travel documents. With more time on their hands after using the new automated system, Emirates customers will also be able to enjoy discounted services at a range of Brookfield Place facilities, including restaurants, gyms, and high-end stores.

Adobe Teases New AI Editing Tools And Updates In Premiere Pro

The video editing app will be enhanced with a generative extend tool, text-to-video, improved timeline waveforms, and more.



adobe teases new ai editing tools and updates in premiere pro

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
