Why I am starting another AI newsletter

The world of AI has become incredibly complex over the last few years. New research emerges everyday, new tools and startups pop up every week. While supervised learning techniques and MLOps have been the dominant topics over the last years, the emergence of generative AI has sped up the pace of innovation even further. The hype around models like GPT-3 and Stable Diffusion have opened the eyes of an even wider audience to the possibilities and potential dangers of AI.

As a practitioner, it’s hard to keep up with all of the latest developments. Newsletters are a great way to stay up to date, and I consume numerous newsletters on a daily basis. Examples include:

I love all of them, but I feel like there is a gap in the market for a newsletter that goes in-depth on the underlying technology and business models. Most of these newsletters curate the latest AI news, including headlines, research papers, and tools. Others go in-depth on specific papers. However, I often feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information, and it is easy to lose sight of the big picture. That's why I created a system to organize my highlights and notes, allowing me to quickly find the information I need whenever I need it. Since most companies are still in the early days of adopting AI, I want to share these notes with a wider audience. My goal is to distill the information I derive from reading these newsletters, social media posts, and research papers into actionable insights for practitioners and executives. Example topics of my newsletter could include:

  • Common anatomy of ML-powered applications (e.g., hardware and software components)
  • Business models for different kinds of AI applications (e.g., supervised vs. generative ML)
  • Best practices for building and deploying AI applications (e.g., MLOps)
  • Design patters for user interfaces of AI-powered applications (e.g., chatbots, decision support systems)
  • Comprehensive reviews of different AI tools
  • Outlook on the future of AI (e.g., the rise of generative AI, market developments)
