Hi all! 
Whether you’re at a conference or sipping your morning coffee ☕️at work or at home, I hope you enjoy this newsletter edition. 
This time, we have: lots of resources including a new interactive ML course by Google, all CodeLabs from Google I/O, and a collection of 6,500 surveys, tutorials, and libraries about NLP; research using retro games in cool ways; finding misspellings (and pretentious words) in a word embedding space; articles about the dark side of AI; computers vs. doctors, round 2; a nice, interactive article about the delayed impact of fairness; an intro to causal inference for Deep Learning; news about startups (X.ai and HuggingFace) as well as Amazon doing more NLP; and new research papers.
