About the Ahead of AI Magazine

Artificial intelligence is a fast-moving field. I created Ahead of AI to help you keep up with the latest developments and research trends in the fields of machine learning, deep learning, and artificial intelligence.

About the Author

My name is Sebastian Raschka, and I have been working on machine learning and AI for more than a decade.

Next to being a researcher, I also have a strong passion for education and am best known for my bestselling books on machine learning using open-source software.

After my PhD, I joined the University of Wisconsin-Madison as a professor in the Department of Statistics, where I focused deep learning and machine learning research until 2023.

Taking a yearlong break from academia, I joined Lightning AI in 2022, where I am now a Staff Research Engineer focusing on the intersection of AI research, software development, and large language models (LLMs).

Besides Substack, you can also find me on Twitter and LinkedIn!
