AI with soul?
Plus, how engineers should be thinking about the EU AI Act
We’re back with another edition of Machine Learnings, brought to you by the folks at Heyday.
Heyday is an AI-powered memory assistant that resurfaces content you forgot about while you browse the web.
As we age, our preferences angle to individualized experiences. The masses often bring us in the door, only for us to identify what doesn’t fit us, uniquely.
The same goes for our software. With more experience, we realize what we like and don’t like. It doesn’t have to be the same as the person next to you. With scale, we can create variants that work for each of us.
Because each of us have our own histories and preferences, we demand a tailored experience.
That’s what using Heyday feels like. Try it for yourself today.
