Elon Musk's OpenAI Wants To Teach Robots To Speak Like Redditors

Reddit Is Down [Update: It's Back]

Meet The Guys Who Cracked Pokemon GO Wide Open

I’m in the back of a Gregory’s Coffee in New York’s midtown across from Dronpes and flanked by Moots7, who are careful to tell me as little about themselves as possible. From what I can gather Moots works in finance and comes from rural Colorado, while Dronpes is a developer at a tech company, hard-working with a cautious, controlling streak.

Uber Drivers Reveal Their Passengers' Darkest Secrets

Uber drivers witness a lot of awful things. You may have been a part of some of those cringeworthy moments, but just in case, Ask Reddit is currently hosting a thread asking Uber drivers to spill the deepest secrets they have heard while driving. The stories are pretty incredible.


Redditor Made Working Pokemon Game Inside Minecraft

Video: In a deliciously meta update, Redditor Requag built a working version of Pokemon Fire Red for Gameboy Advance within the world of Minecraft. It’s not fully functional, but it’s still pretty cool.


This 5-Year-Old Scientist Knows More About Tornadoes Than You

Video: When I was five, I was repeatedly falling off my bike and making my Barbies do weird things to each other. Oliver, however, puts my five-year-old self to shame, because he’s over here making cool YouTube videos about tornadoes.
