    Thats very vague... AI has a very broad take and that sort of thing sounds like a main hustle... not something you'll do on the side.

    And that sounds like a main hustle if its automated and you have the opportunity to scale...

    I use artificial intelligence technologies to automate business which then generates passive income for me.

    Well that sounds better. Still a bit vague though...are you automating investments, social media interaction, or what?

    Also, is this an MS based AI framework or Google or something else?

    My main hustle is homeschooling my kiddos, philanthropic projects, being a board member, and overseeing my investments (be the bank!).

    Yes, Google and Microsoft tech stacks. Like any other automation initiative, you start with creating accelerators to support business functions then increase scope and complexity allowing complete functional areas of an organization (marketing, sales, hr, etc.)

    Ok, interesting. It sounds like you have a product or products that you're using AI to automate the marketing and sales process, but AI is not the core of your business..

    It's usually vague because it's BS. He's just posting around here to promote his website.

    That's pretty much a full time job.

    Coding the machine learning algorithms to make a decent AI after millions of iterations (where's the data? What's the source?), then trying to sell that AI to customers... that's far from a side hustle in my opinion !

    Especially since any decent business owner will look twice at the AI before jumping in. It needs to have a 99%+ accuracy. Who's accountable if the AI makes a mistake (depending on what it is used for) ? There's probably some need for legal protections around all that too... and the privacy of the customers data.

    Precisely this, If it was something you did 1 hour a day... I'll get it but it sounds like a full time hustle as opposed to doing something quick and getting cashin hand

    We use AI to automate the marketing and sales of AI solutions. The delivery side is operationalized and outsourced.

    Asumed most people would undersand the details.
    Wow, lots going on there.

    Context
    I have operationalized the process of creating businesses, it follows a lot of what @Sean Marshall (documented here), and spin up legal entities in about 3-5 business days taking me about 4 hours of working with my team. My role in these ventures is CEO and have COOs. This venture takes about 5 hours of active participation.

    As for some of your comments
    Yes, there is a data scientist working with tools and data to make patterns, models from the patterns, and predictions from the models. There is a training of the models and they do not need 99% accuracy precision to meet "fit for purpose". Data privacy is an industry practice due to regulatory and compliance requirements and is not AI specific. We have 4 levels of data classification in our process an do not work with PHI and only limited PII. Hope that helps.

    Thank you for the explanation. It definitely looks more like a side hustle now (from your point of view).
    That's actually a really interesting hustle !
