Build web apps, iOS apps, and workflows with Retool.
New publication from Apple, where Apple engineers can publish their work and research on machine learning. The writing is more accessible than a peer-reviewed technical journal, but alas (but unsurprisingly for Apple), the articles are un-bylined. The approachability without avoiding nitty-gritty technical details reminds me of Dr. Dobb’s Journal back in the day.
My assumption here is that this doesn’t replace publishing in established peer-reviewed journals, but rather acts as a public-facing, more accessible filter for research that Apple engineers publish in peer-reviewed journals — perhaps along with original content at some point.
(Also: no RSS feed. Update: There is an RSS feed — the URL just isn’t published anywhere in the HTML. Update 2: The site now has a
<link> tag with the URL for the feed so you can just point any feed reader at its home page to discover the feed. Nice.)
