Welcome to One Useful Thing

This blog/newsletter provides a research-based view on the implications of AI, by me, Prof. Ethan Mollick (and, no, I don’t use AI to write this, so forgive the spelling and grammar issues). Free resources and prompts are compiled at More Useful Things. You might also be interested in my New York Times bestselling book, Co-Intelligence.

For more about me, see my boring academic page.

The cover image was generated by MidJourney AI v3 with the prompt “One useful thing” in pixelart style.
