The Humans Behind Embrace the Machine

We believe that artificial intelligence shouldn’t require off-the-charts intelligence to understand and embrace. That’s why we commit to presenting information that’s smart and simple, pithy, and (hopefully) fun and easy to read.

One day, this site will be researched and written entirely by machines. In the interim, here’s who’s “programming” it.
