We discover multiple links and papers, and often share and discuss them on Slack. However, because of the chat interface, those links are lost. As a work around, we're creating this page where all relevant links, papers or articles can be saved. It would be easy to find relevant work later, and I hope you all find it useful. Feel free to add categories or sections as you feel fit. Thanks.
