Long-form AI content

What you get:

  1. I write out the feelings of understanding a new research idea in AI,

  2. Follow latest models and what they mean (not the marketing), and

  3. More direct access to popular and hidden gems of technical researchers.

Here are some highlights of folks describing Interconnects in their own words:

From Jordan Schneider, ChinaTalk on Twitter.

nathan i've given up on reading papers now you're my only hope

From Christopher Manning, renowned computer science professor at Stanford:


From Matthew Lynley of Supervised:

Nathan Lambert, an expert currently working in the field, synthesizes some of the most complicated new developments in AI in an incredibly relatable and entertaining way.

From many others:

The best AI Substack right now.

And to be clear, we’re just getting started.

Otherwise, there are not enough people trying to explain complicated topics in AI research and how it integrates with where technology and society is going. Interconnects is trying to pioneer a new method of AI communication.

Most Wednesdays I will bring you a 5-15 minute deep dive into what I am thinking about, and its implications. Given how AI is taking over many aspects of society, there won’t be a shortage of topics anytime soon.

The content is generally split into opinion pieces and technical deep dives.

Note, you can also get posts in podcast players and on YouTube!

Paid subscribers get:

  • The ability to always comment on posts, which is the place I respond to the most over email, Twitter DMs, etc.

  • Access to the subscriber Discord, so you can know what I’m thinking about and access ML experts. You can even steer what I write about.

  • The ~10% of my content that is paywalled explicitly.

  • The joy of supporting my work and encouraging me to take risks, such as the new audio experiment.

(I have paid upsell on in the Substack settings, so sometimes you may get an extra email — my most engaged people are the people I want to hang out with in the Interconnects Discord)

Upgrading to paid supports my memberships and API bills for understanding ML and creating this content. The growing list of subscriptions I use (or have used) to create Interconnects includes ChatGPT+, OpenAI API, MidJourney, Runway.ml, ElevenLabs, Transistor.fm, and more.


mail at interconnects.ai if you have any questions!

I love hearing from people and uplifting those in my community, so please comment, join my chat (you can ask questions too), and Tweet my articles with a question or more.

If you’re an author of a recent ML paper, I’d love to hear from you and help you tell the story of your paper.

I’m offering 80% off paid plans for students, to redeem this use an educational email and go to interconnects.ai/student


I am a paid advisor to Tola Capital, so I do not plan on covering any of their portfolio companies on the blog. If I do, I will disclose it.

As part of paying for Eleven Labs API to generate my voiceovers, I enrolled in their referral program, which currently nets me $0 (try it here).

Otherwise, I have accepted no advertising dollars and pay for the services I use.

Thank you for your support!
