Sunday Signal #2

Faking your life with AI, don't rely on ChatGPT and college essays are dead

Signal, straight to your inbox, every Sunday.

Hey friends πŸ‘‹ ,

Each week I consume 500+ pieces of content in AI.

I filter them and send you the best, each Sunday.

I've added a new section: 'Startup Scene'. This will give you a peek at the week's best action in the AI venture arena.

It's a damp afternoon here in London as I write this (what's new with the British weather?) Time to dive right in!
