The Gradient is a digital magazine that aims to be a place for discussion about research and trends in artificial intelligence and machine learning. We provide accessible and technically informed overviews of the what's going on AI, as well as a platform for perspectives on recent developments and long-term trends. In short, The Gradient points in the direction of the field.

It is a non-profit and volunteer-run effort run by people in the AI community who enjoy these sorts of articles and like to enable more of them to be written. It was founded in 2017 by a group of students and researchers at the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (SAIL).
