The Grid: The first AI website developer

14 Oct 2014

A pre-order campaign has been launched for The Grid, which uses artificial intelligence (AI) to create quality websites quickly and efficiently.

The AI-powered tool can help you build your website whether you’re a photographer and want to showcase your work, or a start-up after a fresh new design. The Grid was created in order to eliminate the need for templates and uses technology involving algorithms which analyse the media and apply palettes.

“Template making platforms take hours, if not days to make something you’d be proud of,” says Dan Tocchini, CEO of The Grid. “We’ve spent the last few years building a form of artificial intelligence that functions like your own personal graphic designer, able to think about your brand and present it in the best way possible. The design adapts to your content, not the other way around.”

The Grid was founded in San Francisco in 2010 by a team of web developers and designers. Bringing top quality websites to the masses, this is not just a website builder but your own personal AI web developer.

The promotional video says, “A template isn’t for you. Your site should reflect who you are and should look good doing it. Problems arise because designing and developing are time-consuming jobs, and would it not be better if the website made itself?”

A key part of The Grid is that it has the ability to adapt and adjust content. It completes the tiresome aspects of website development and automates mundane website work.

Videos, images, text and urls are automatically shaped to fit on your site, so you don’t have to take the time to crop images. Furthermore, the layout changes as you add content.

Should you want to add an online shopping feature, you can add e-commerce capabilities where viewers can add products and proceed to checkout.

With the ability to produce a site tailor-made whatever your purpose, The Grid could draw in more customers or followers.

The crowdfunding campaign has been officially launched, and the first accounts are said to be released next year. For more information go here.
