How model training goes wrong
With a dash of good news on deepfake protection
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.
In a week where potentially groundbreaking science news dropped, the Heyday crew geeked out. We should know within a week whether or not we live in a different world. Pretty exciting.
In the office, we’re close to releasing a slew of workflow-driven features for your memory, ideas, and writing. It’s making for a fun summer.
