Navigating knowledge is connecting people!


Reusing the knowledge of other people in your team and following experts’ new work is key to an efficient AI and Data Science team. While forging your own path is crucial, asking the right person a question and following them, rather than reinventing the wheel, can save you days and months of work. With this new release we are strengthening the features Zeta Alpha offers around connecting people, in your team, and with the global AI and Data Science community.

  • 🏷️ Tag people. Experts on things you care about, your favorite authors, potential collaborators, or talent to recruit. Tag them, and our recommendations will start to update you on their new work.

  • 🧑‍🤝‍🧑 New People page. Get an easy overview of the people in your team, the knowledge they share, as well as the overview of all the experts you follow across different tags.

  • 🕵️‍♂️ Your team in Search. When you are searching on a topic that your team-mates know about, it would be cool if they would pop up in the People Search to increase the chances of knowledge reuse, right? It’s here! And it will get better over time.

  • 🔔 Share tag updates. Use this as an easy internal R&D newsletter. Designated experts surface trending topics and share them with colleagues. Become a knowledge curator for your team.



  • ⏭️ What’s next? We’re adding more tools to filter people by location and organization, and cleaning up our data on that dimension, so you can discover and connect to the right people in a more precise and up to date way. And we will start curating a few interesting feeds on topics of common interest in AI, and share them with you. Let us know which topics you care about!
