NVIDIA created an AI system that recreated the video game PAC-MAN in four days. By comparison, it took NAMCO's programmers 17 months to design and build the game before it's release in 1980: For all the hype AI gets these days (and frequently is disappointing in reality), this is a pretty significant application - imagine if by watching almost anything, an AI could learn how to do said task (presuming it had the requisite real-world interface to do what it had learned to do by observing). I'd be curious to how many lines of code the AI PAC-MAN has versus the code of the original, and what similarities the AI created (functions, subroutines) that matched the original in concept.

Depeche Mode have done an amazing cover of David Bowie's "Heroes" for it's 40th anniversary. I like this song better than anything on Depeche Mode's latest album, TBH. They've been playing this live on their tour, but the produced version sounds the best I think. Gore's guitar playing is sublime, as always.
