Illustrator's AIRobin Background Process

NOVEMBER 12, 2021

According to a forum post by a verified Adobe contributor, AI Robin is a background process, introduced in Illustrator 2020, responsible for background save and export tasks. I got warned by Lulu, an app that prompts for verification to enable any outgoing connections. On Windows, the same process is called AiRobin.exe. Apparently, users report AIRobin hogging huge amounts of RAM and slowing down the machine at times.
