Artificial Intelligence is an ever evolving, fast changing technology with a scope so broad that keeping track of every development is rather difficult. Some of the milestones created in AI might look small to a layman but they could be the pivotal moment for something big at a later stage.
One of the ways to keep track of even the smallest milestone achieved by AI and companies building AI tools is to subscribe to newsletters. There are a number of technology newsletters that aim to serve AI enthusiasts and help them stay informed about advancements in the field. If you are looking to subscribe, these are the ten best AI newsletters right now.
The name of this newsletter tells you everything that is there to know about it. The Algorithm is a newsletter published by MIT Technology Review that arrives in your inbox every weekday.
