Apple’s Machine Learning Journal/Blog

Apple (Hacker News):

Welcome to the Apple Machine Learning Journal. Here, you can read posts written by Apple engineers about their work using machine learning technologies to help build innovative products for millions of people around the world. If you’re a machine learning researcher or student, an engineer or developer, we’d love to hear your questions and feedback.

The RSS feed was not initially advertised, as is common these days.

John Gruber:

The language is more accessible than a peer-reviewed technical journals, but alas (but unsurprisingly for Apple), the articles are un-bylined.

Update (2017-07-20): Nick Heir:

For some reason, the virtually all-text site includes on every page a 1 MB JavaScript file. The first published article is a 4 MB page which, while not an egregious file size generally, is pretty ridiculous for something that’s largely text. A great deal of the additional bulk comes in the form of images that could easily be compressed: the lead image is a 110 KB PNG file, which I losslessly compressed to 30 KB by running it through a basic image optimization tool. It’s a little thing, but the little things stack up to a text-based article that wastes multiple megabytes of bandwidth.
