Inside the larps that let human players experience AI life - The Verge
Game designers are using artificial intelligence to explore everything from racial discrimination to cathartic emotion.

It's Nice That | David Rothenberg discusses his unique portraits of the passengers of planes
Although born and raised in southern California, photographer David Rothenberg has called New York City home for the last 18 years. More specifically, Jackson Heights, Queens, and it’s an area which has become the focus of many of his projects. The most recent of these titled _Landing Lights Park_ saw David photographing those who live under the flight paths of LaGuardia airport as both a documentation of this experience, but also an exploration into the formal qualities of compositi...

What is Property Based Testing? - Hypothesis
What is Property Based Testing? I get asked this a lot, and I write property based testing tools for a living, so you’d think

Lunar Arithmetic | Programming Praxis
Over at Numberphile, Neil Sloane (yes, that Neil Sloane), talks about lunar arithmetic, an "other-worldly" way of doing simple math: Lunar addition and multiplication work digit by digit, the same as terrestrial addition and multiplication, except that the plus and times tables are unusual.
