📒 News & Notes
Happy New Year!  2017 looks to be primed to be a big year for assistants & bots (with AI sprinkled throughout).  This year I’m planning on diving in a bit deeper on the bot building front and hope to create my first “real” bot/assistant for our clients in Q1.  

Our house was invaded by Echo’s and Google Home’s over the holidays and as I see our family adjust to these ever present assistants I can’t help but think about what the future will look like as they become more pervasive in people’s homes and offices.  I’m looking forward to diving into the various options for natural language understanding and bot building and will be sure to share interesting links I come across.  What are you most interested in exploring in 2017?

Now, onto the links for the past couple of weeks……

Tech Newsletter: Issue 2

Welcome to the second issue of my newsletter.  While I’m not restricting the content I include in the newsletter to a single topic I have been focused on AI, machine learning, and bots recently so you can expect those themes to be a bit more prevalent.  What topics are you most interested in?

📚 Books 
I’ve been slacking in my reading recently.  After I came across “The Need to Read” I decided I was going to get back into the habit of regularly reading.  As such I picked up Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life.  I’m only a few chapters in but I’m really enjoying it thus far.

🎧 Podcasts 
I’ve really been enjoying How I Built This from NPR.

That’s it for this week.  Until next time.
