Friday Jambalaya: Artificial Intelligence, Barbie and Cheese Thieves

"That's the cutest cat I've ever seen in my life."

Some things from the week caught our attention. Happy Friday, everyone!

  1. Google built an AI that beat a professional Go player. After watching Ex Machina this week, we’re not sure how to take that.
  2. The cutest kitten ever needs to be rescued in Key and Peele’s Keanu. They better friggin’ rescue him.
  3. Steven Moffat is leaving Doctor Who! And Chris Chibnall of Broadchurch is taking over!
  4. After all the #OscarsSoWhite nominations, it’s pretty awesome to see Birth of a Nation (the new one, obvs) doing fantastically well at Sundance.
  5. Looks like Black Widow is in the first wave of their Civil War merch. Thank you, Hasbro.
  6. Cheese Thieves! Like really, actual Cheese Thieves, pulling off cheese heists!
  7. AI + Game Design + Aliens = Interlingua by Yoon Ha Lee over at Uncanny Magazine.
  8. In other doll news, Barbie has three new body types!
  9. Here’s an interesting look behind the scenes at Netflix.
  10. And to round it off: 24 theories about Rey’s parents. We love the last one.
