AI progress hit an “inflection point” somewhere around 2020 and it’s near impossible to stay up-to-date with all the latest happenings. Here are the best AI newsletters in the space, that will help you keep on the cutting edge of what’s going on.
Last Update: February 2023
This newsletter is less about “theory and research” and more about how AI applies to our everyday lives.
The tagline is “Use AI to increase your productivity and profits”.
It covers a wide range of AI issues in a way to make is accessible to everyone.
What the NATURAL 20 AI Newsletter Covers
- News – what’s going on in AI, explained in a simple language, no tech background required.
- Business – how AI is changing the business landscape including big tech as well as small business use cases.
- Tools – some training on the latest AI tools like ChatGPT, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion and the like.
- Thinkers – we hear from people who discuss all sides of AI. From complete AI pessimists to people who believe AI will usher in a new golden age.
What NATURAL 20 does NOT cover
This newsletter does NOT go into politics, the “culture war” as well as the outrage clickbait headlines that are so popular today. It’s not here to brainwash or convince you.
NATURAL 20 and AI Alignment
The newsletter also doesn’t take a side in the AI good or evil debate. If someone makes a good point about why it will kill us all, you’ll hear it. If someone makes a good point about why it will bring world peace and prosperity, you’ll hear it.
Ben Tossell does daily news updates about AI.
It’s not aimed at techies and Ben specifically is excited at the prospect of using AI to create code without having to learn to *actually* code.
(which I’m excited about as well)

People who work (or had worked) at OpenAI, seem to have a great perspective into AI and where it’s heading.

About Import AI
See a description here.
Import AI is a weekly newsletter about artificial intelligence, read by more than ten thousand experts.
It’s written by me – Jack Clark. I’m a co-founder of Anthropic, an AI safety and research company.
I was previously the Policy Director of OpenAI, an AI deployment company.
Before that, I worked as the world’s only neural network reporter at Bloomberg, and before that as the world’s only distributed systems reporter at The Register.
I believe the greatest challenge of the 21st century is to make an increasingly fast-moving technical world ‘legible’ to a large number of people.
My belief is that by solving these information asymmetries, we will naturally build the infrastructures necessary to maintain stability in an era of great change and possibility.
Things will be weird.
Be not afraid.Jack Clark.
