Futurecasting for engineers
AI + AR applications and highlights from CHI 2023
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.
For the first time in months, a week has gone by without a massive AI announcement. Are we in the eye of the storm?
Or, more likely, are the technologists of the world heads-down at work?
That was us this week! We threw a team hackathon that made us lock in, laugh, and gasp.
The fruits of those builds may even see Heyday proper soon, so yeah, you should think about trying Heyday today.
