  2. A private company you probably haven't heard of just announced that it has the money it needs to shoot for the moon, literally. Moon Express — one of the teams competing to win the $30 million Google Lunar X Prize — says that it has now raised enough money to build, test and launch its uncrewed MX-1E spacecraft to the lunar surface before the end of this year. SEE ALSO: A private spaceflight company just got approval to land a spacecraft on the moon “We now have all the resources in place to shoot for the moon,” Moon Express CEO Bob Richards said in a statement.

  3. Some changes at the top of Timehop, the quirky app that shows you reminders of photos and other content that you’ve taken and posted on Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Instagram and Flickr or from your camera roll. TechCrunch has learned and confirmed that Jon Wegener, who co-founded the company with Benny Wong, has stepped down as CEO. He has been replaced by Matt Raoul, who had… Read More View the full article
  4. The field of artificial intelligence is a large one, full of interesting research, arguments, and people — so you could be forgiven (as I hope to be) for not being familiar with Joanna Bryson, professor of CS at the University of Bath who for decades has studied AI and its many ethical and technical conundra. She just wrapped up an AMA and you should read it. Read More View the full article
  5. An internal study of the massive open online courses (MOOCs) offered by Harvard and MIT shows a serious decline in the number of students choosing to enroll and certify via these internet-accessible classrooms. 2016 only saw around half the participants as the previous year — likely due to the programs’ discontinuance of free certification.

  6. Greater compute power and power efficiency has made deep learning algorithms ubiquitous in our world. Deep learning has found its way into self driving cars, convenience stores and hospitals. Yet the fight for top talent in the space remains fierce and is a bottleneck for reaching new industries and solving tough challenges. To complement Udacity’s previous AI courses, the… Read More View the full article

According to documents unearthed by Business Insider, Amazon Corporate has sought permission from the FCC to run tests of wireless technology prototypes in and around one of its facilities in Seattle, and outdoors in Kennewick, Washington, for unspecified purposes. The person who filed the request on behalf of the e-commerce and IT giant, Neil Woodward, is a former NASA astronaut, now a… Read More View the full article
  8. This week, movie superstar and WWE Legend Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson posted to his social media profiles that he had just come away from a meeting with representatives of DC Entertainment, and shared his enthusiasm for what's to come in future DC movies at Warner Bros. We've known for at least the past couple of years that Johnson is slated to play the arch nemesis of Shazam (or Captain Marvel, depending on how well you know him): Black Adam. While most comic book fans rejoiced at the news of Johnson's casting in this part specifically, a fair amount of people are still in the dark in regards to who Black Adam is, and what he represents. So, before The Rock likely ends up elevating him... Read More View the full article

  11. A big media executive is stepping down at Sony to help Snapchat on its quest to redefine the camera — and television. Michael Lynton, chief executive of Sony’s entertainment division, announced Friday he is leaving his role at Sony to focus on Snap Inc., the parent company of Snapchat where he is chairman on the board. SEE ALSO: Snapchat is quietly making updates that Facebook advertisers like According to an internal email obtained by Mashable, Lynton decided that Snap needed more of his attention given its growth. Indeed, the news comes as CEO Evan Spiegel and other members of Snap’s executive teams are meeting with investors to discuss an upcoming initial public offering. “This was not an easy decision for me, and one that I arrived at after long and careful consideration,” he wrote in the email “As some of you are already aware, I have been involved with Snapchat since its early days. Given Snapchat’s growth – and my growing role and responsibilities in it – I recently determined that the time was right to make a change,” the email continued. Read more...

  12. When packing up to get on the plane, you might want to leave that loaded gun at home. That might sound obvious, but 2016 actually saw the highest number of guns seized at airport security checkpoints — almost 3,400 firearms and 83 percent of them loaded — since the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was founded in 2001, the government agency announced on Thursday. A total of 3,391 guns were seized at nearly 240 different airports across the country. Last year, TSA agents uncovered over 2,650 guns at security checkpoints. That marks a 28 percent jump from 2015 to 2016, although the agency notes there was also 43 million more passengers in 2016 than the year before. Read more...

  13. “Let’s show them we are better.” That’s the refrain of the new Chainsmokers song “Paris,” which came out Friday and shot to No. 1 on iTunes. It’s also crazy advice the Chainsmokers have wisely elected not to follow. One of 2016’s biggest breakout acts, this band of EDM bros has found enormous success... View the full article

  15. Deadpool is not winning the Oscar for Best Picture — not happening, nope, never, no way — but a series of recent developments have us wondering: Could it be nominated? Could a disturbingly vulgar, hyper-violent superhero-rascal movie stand alongside La La Land, Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight on Feb. 26 at the Dolby Theatre? Is this like a Brexit/Trump presidency thing happening right before our eyes? SEE ALSO: All 23 times 'Deadpool' gleefully smashed the 4th wall Ehhh, probably not. And yet ... Despite its decidedly antithetical Oscar pedigree, the surprise box-office blockbuster from Fox/Marvel suddenly has all the markings of a potential nominee. Put it this way: If a "serious" movie had all this loot in its bag already, we'd be calling a nomination a killshot: Read more...

  16. In yet another Twin Peaks revival teaser that tells us absolutely nothing, Kyle MacLachlan emerges from the shadows as Special Agent Dale Cooper, gazing into the abyss. And that's pretty much it, besides a little Pacific Northwest scenery and a road illuminated by headlights. But for fans starved of any hints, it's as sweet as cherry pie. The revival, advertised as a "pure heroin" look into the curious mind of creator David Lynch, will premiere on May 21 on Showtime.

  17. The Hamilton soundtrack is making history. According to Billboard, the cast recording of Hamilton: An American Musical has surpassed 1 million U.S. album sales. SEE ALSO: The 'Hamilton' cast performing 'One Last Time' at the White House will wreck you The soundtrack is only the ninth original cast recording to claim the honor. The top selling cast recording, at just shy of five million, is a selection of songs from the original London cast recording of Phantom of the Opera released in 1991, the year Nielson began keeping track. The soundtrack, which was released on September 25, 2015, is the only soundtrack with the honor released after song streams equivalent to album sales became eligible for inclusion on the charts.

  18. Professional Street Fighter player Lee "Infiltration" Seon-woo really opened up about Capcom and his issues with how they handle the pro scene. In an interview with Core-A Gaming on Wednesday, Infiltration discussed some of his frustrations with season 2 of Street Fighter V and how changes and updates are focusing on bringing in new players, which in turn is forcing dedicated players to learn new characters and strategies. With all the new changes, Street Fighter V now rewards offensive strategies more than balanced strategies and pros have to adapt their playstyles. Infiltration also talked about some of his issues with the Capcom Pro Tour and Capcom Cup, including a lack of communication about tournament structure and scheduling and lack of rest and practice space at Capcom Cup.

  19. Michael Lynton, the CEO of Sony Entertainment, will be stepping down from the company in order to serve as chairman of Snap (the makers of Snapchat), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

  20. When Matt Saincome was an adolescent punk rocker, he sculpted his hair into a foot-tall red mohawk. He was proud of his spiky gesture of defiance, but he quickly had to find a sense of humor about it when he needed transportation. “I’d have to tilt my head so it wouldn’t hit the roof of my parents’...

  21. More than 15 years after her death, Aaliyah’s presence can still be felt as her influence percolates through a new generation of artists — Tinashe, Banks, SZA and Jhené Aiko are just some of today’s acts that can be traced to her. Such an impact is impressive given her modest output — a catalog... View the full article
  22. How Drake came up in the music business has long been a matter of legal dispute. This week, Aspire Music Group—a label purporting to have signed Drake in 2008—filed a lawsuit against Cash Money for its allegedly unpaid share of profits from recordings by the Toronto rapper. It is the latest in a string of lawsuits regarding Drake profits that involves Aspire. According to a copy of the complaint obtained by Pitchfork, Aspire alleges that Drake signed an exclusive recording deal with the label in December 2008. The next year, Aspire signed another deal with Cash Money that would give Aspire one-third of the profits from any “commercial exploitation” of Drake recordings, according to the complaint. Aspire now asserts that it wants Cash Money to give a full accounting of Drake earnings and to pay Aspire’s share of revenues, plus damages. Here’s where things get a bit more complicated. Aspire’s suit—filed January 11 in the New York State Supreme Court—is related to multiple previous lawsuits: In 2012, James “Jas” Prince filed a lawsuit in New York state court claiming he discovered Drake, and alleging Aspire cut him out of the profits he was owed. (That case is ongoing.) Like the latest suit, Prince acknowledges the alleged 33 percent deal that Aspire and Cash Money struck in 2009. Prince’s multiple suits involve a 22 percent cut of Aspire’s alleged 33 percent, which he says he has never been paid. In the case against Aspire, he has been waiting for Aspire to sue Cash Money, his lawyer Jethro Eisenstein told Pitchfork. And now that’s happening. In yet another ongoing case, Prince separately sued Aspire co-owner Derrick Lawrence and his On the Road company for Drake profits. Lawrence is scheduled for an appearance in New York court on January 25. Lawyers for Bryant, Aspire, Lawrence, and Cash Money, and spokespeople for Drake and Warner, all either didn’t immediately respond to Pitchfork’s requests for comment or declined to comment.
