Kari Lewis, a cosplayer and Hufflepuff from Indianapolis, U.S., looks more than a bit like the Harry Potter star — and judging by her recent Instagram posts, she’s certainly trying to make the most of the similarity.

Even an AI machine couldn’t ace China’s super tough college entrance exam


An AI machine that sat the math paper for China’s college entrance exam has failed to prove it’s better than its human competition.

AI-Maths, a machine made of 11 servers, three years in the making, joined almost 10 million high schoolers last week, in sitting for the country’s national exam.

AI-Maths scored 105 points out of the maximum score of 150 in the first version of the test, and 100 for the second version, not far above the passing grade of 90.

This was well below average of 135 that top scorers achieved in previous years for math. Read more…

We all know that James Corden has a flare for the musical dramatics. The actor-singer extraordinaire reunited with his Into the Woods co-star, Emily Blunt, to perform The Late Late Show version of Romeo and Juliet.

In the video above, Corden and Blunt re-enact the story of the two star-crossed lovers using only the lyrics from pop music hits. The soundtrack to this musical includes songs like Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are,” Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream,” and Ludacris’ “What’s Your Fantasy.” Read more…

He’s so sure of it, he’s gone ahead and said it could be the next big thing globally.

He told CNN Philippines that the sizzling, crispy pork dish is “perfectly positioned to win the hearts and minds of the world as a whole.

Lyft snags a big UK automaker for its latest self-driving development partner


Lyft isn’t done lining up partners for an autonomous future, and with a wide-open platform for self-driving development, that won’t likely end soon.

The ride-hailing company has already teamed with a major automaker in GM, the biggest tech company in the space with Google’s Waymo, and one of the most proven self-driving startups in its recent alliance with nuTonomy, which will aim to put self-driving Lyft vehicles on the streets of Boston sometime in the near future. 

Next in line: Jaguar Land Rover (JLR). The UK-based automaker will partner with Lyft via a $25 million investment through Inmotion, its mobility services business. JLR will provide Lyft drivers with a fleet of cars as part of the deal, while the automaker will use Lyft’s new Open Platform to help develop its self-driving tech.  Read more…

Nazis team up with the KKK in ‘Wolfenstein II’ because of course they do


That was unexpected.

It wasn’t a surprise to see Bethesda Softworks reveal Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus during its pre-E3 briefing. Everything shown in the 8-minute first look, however, was a total surprise.

What starts as a jarring look at live-action and animated TV in a Nazi-controlled alternate history eventually transforms into an increasingly bizarre series of scenes from that world. It’s the 1960s now, which means Nazi overlords are clashing with counter-culture, open racism, and rampant drug experimentation.

This is some weird shit, folks. I can’t wait to play it when it arrives on Oct. 27, 2017. Read more…
