The Algorithm Archive

A subscriber-only artificial intelligence newsletter.

December 4, 2000

As an MIT Technology Review subscriber, you have exclusive access to The Algorithm, a weekly AI newsletter that thoughtfully examines the field’s latest news and research.

The Algorithm has always been produced by a small team that punches above our weight. Your continued support helps us to chase stories, break scoops, and deliver ambitious, quality journalism.

Under the authorship of Karen Hao, The Algorithm was named one of the best newsletters on the internet in 2018 by The Webby Awards. Her work has also won a Front Page Award and been short-listed for the Sigma Awards.

More recently, our reporting for The Algorithm has gotten Congress to take action on Google’s firing of AI ethicist Timnit Gebru, and we called out Stanford’s “very complex algorithm” for leaving out their own frontline doctors.

From the author

The Algorithm is a subscriber-only newsletter for people who are curious about the world of AI. I’m here to help you cut through the nonsense and jargon to figure out what truly matters and where all this is headed. You’ll hear from me every Friday with updates and thoughts on the latest AI news and research (as well as some added magic and memes).
