About this site

Everyone has a stake in the new AI. We're swamped in a trillion gallons of ink, but for all the ooh-ahh and doom bites, the how-to-get started tips and tricks, and the technology business news, it can be hard to grasp what it really is, and what it really means. AI for Mortals is for people with or without technical background who want to be able to think about these things for themselves.
