🐝 Hive Five 155 - Adversarial Machine Learning

Hi friends,

Greetings from the hive!

I hope you’re doing awesome. Thank you for all the well wishes. I’m feeling significantly better again.

As I’ve mentioned several issues ago, I’m in the process of moving the Hive Five to a new home. So, stay tuned.

My 2024 goal is to create for myself. As Rick Rubin puts it, approach things as a diary entry.

Let's take this week by swarm!
