About the book and this substack

AI is everywhere, and so is hype around AI. That's why we are launching a book project on AI snake oil—to dispel hype, remove misconceptions, and clarify the limits of AI. 

But this is not a typical book project; we plan to share our ideas with you every step of the way.

If you want to better understand the capabilities and limits of AI, if you are skeptical of the hype surrounding AI, and if you are looking to avoid getting duped by snake oil, then this substack is for you.

The best place to start is our introductory blog post and a sneak peek into the book.

All of the content on this substack is, and will be, publicly available. There is no paid subscription.

Thank you for joining us—we are excited to see where this takes us!
