AI-Generated TLDR ๐Ÿค–




image (47).png

We all know this feeling before we decide to read an article wondering if it's really worth it. Today we're introducing a new feature built to address that problem.

Our team has been busy playing with some data to come up with a model that summarizes articles. That way, you can have a glimpse of the article's content, before actually reading it.

The TLDR is available on every article page. To get to the article's page on daily.dev, click on the comment button on a card.

Can't believe it?
