In the past couple years, we’ve seen a huge increase in folks working in the intersection of machine learning and user experience (or data science and design, ai and art, and a ton of different other names!)

It has been a little bit of a challenge to keep track of who is doing what, so I have been keeping a running list of great resources that I’d recommend folks checking out if they are interested in this field.

This medium article will serve as a snapshot in time to some of my favorite resources as of Summer 2019 (and updated on a rolling basis), and organized roughly by the group they came from. These are rough notes and I am trying my best to get these resources out into the community, so apologies for not sharing more detail and going into depth! (And super apologies if I left something out — happy to include it in future iterations!)

Please credit this article if you find any of these sources useful and plan to use them in newsletters, other resource aggregating websites, syllabi, etc. for the future! I’ve worked really hard to find these articles, work with different companies and teams to get them to share these, and do SEO to make these machine-discoverable. “Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much” HK — Please help normalize the practice of ML/AI and UX/design by sharing sources (like this list and @mluxmeetup) and helping us all build a community!

Let’s get started!
