Today's most influential technology is being built in secret. I'm a journalist and hacker working to improve public discussion about the statistical models known as A.I.

I write mostly for The Atlantic. In August 2023, I broke the story of Books3, a training dataset with nearly 200,000 copyrighted books being used without permission by Apple, Meta, Bloomberg, Nvidia, and other companies. I've also written about memorization in LLMs and the ongoing copyright lawsuits.
