The challenge was on how to turn my interest of artificial intelligence into something that was useful for other technology enthusiasts.
Before the subject of Artificial Intelligence was a major mainstream topic, there was a lot of misinformation on the internet and many of the valid ones were hard to find on the internet. When my interest on Artificial Intelligence began to surface, I decided to start a website that could share the fascinating research papers and lecture videos I came across.
I purchased a WordPress theme template and started to customize it with plugins and custom coding to make the website more friendly looking, organized, and accessible.
After several design iterations of the website, I settled with a simple responsive two-column layout and a large main slider. I also added two advertisement spaces at the sidebar for potential sponsorship. Its green accent color scheme was designed to convey a sense of life and energy, which was appropriate for the subject of Artificial Intelligence. Basic SEO techniques were implemented. The final part of the equation was the careful curation of hard-to-find contents that had substance and an unique point of view.
As the interest on Artificial Intelligence grew, the website was also getting more popular. The average view count for a post could range from 1,000 to 3,000 over a period of one month. I was also very proud of one instance that a rather controversial theory from a young researcher received some significant attention because it was posted on the A. I. Hub website.
