P.s.: This week’s Splendid Edition of Synthetic Work is titled Law firms’ morale at an all-time high now that they can use AI to generate evil plans to charge customers more money and it’s about AI infiltrating the Legal industry.
- how your peers are using AI in your industry (Education, Finance, Government, Health Care, Media & Entertainment, Tech, etc.)
- what are life-changing AI tools that can enhance your productivity at work (tested or used by me personally)
- why and when to use specific techniques (like prompting) to improve your interaction with the AI
- how you can use AI to perform tasks that matter in your profession
The feedback I got about the first issue, sent out last week, is better than I expected. Readers have said things like:
I really like the newsletter layout. It is chocked full of useful information, insights and humor. Hats off to you on the first edition!
I’m pretty disappointed. Didn’t you promise I was probably going to be disappointed by the newsletter? Turns out I’m not. It’s awesome!
Just to be clear: I did not pay these people. That’s why I’m putting their quotes on a dedicated Testimonials page. You know, to increase peer pressure.
One thing that some people asked is if Synthetic Work is going to be a weekly newsletter. The answer is: yes, that’s the goal.
And to be sure it’ll be 10x harder for me to achieve that goal, this week I also announced a second project: a video podcast about Artificial Intelligence in Italian, hosted on the famous website 01net and done in collaboration with the Italian media company Tecniche Nuove.
It’s a weekly 10-minute pill for people that didn’t find the subscribe button on the Synthetic Work website. The first episode is out and you can tell why I detest being in front of a camera.
This is the Free Edition of the newsletter and, well, it's free to receive in your inbox every week. But to access this online archive, you need a paid membership.
