Jedi: Fallen Order is the best Tomb Raider game I’ve played in a while
While playing the most recent piece of Star Wars media, Electronic Arts’ Jedi: Fallen Order, I’m getting some definite Lara Croft vibes. And I’m very much okay with that. Jedi: Fallen Order is perhaps the first true attempt by EA to produce a single-player Star Wars game. After years of hearing about such games getting canned in favor of two Battlefront titles, playing this game feels like an achievement in and of itself. I’ve been playing it off-and-on ever since it came out. Keep in mind I haven’t finished the game — Death Stranding and Pokémon Sword & Shield exist, and I only have so many hours in… This story continues at The Next Web

Bill Gates says that the only way to hire and keep AI talent is to let them share their research openly: 'You can completely ignore whoever tries to close their system'
John Lamparski/Getty Images Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates appeared onstage for Bloomberg's New Economy Forum in Beijing on Thursday, and spoke out against protectionism in artificial intelligence research.  The US and China have dominated in AI research, but rising political tensions have slowed collaboration between the two countries and raised concerns of national security.  But Gates said separating the sectors was impractical, and 'just doesn't work.' He also said sharing research was key for attracting talent: many Microsoft employees stayed at the company because it regularly publishes their research, he said.  Gates is no stranger to wading into controversial topics. At the New York Times DealBook conference in early November, he apologized for his ties with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, and questioned whether Sen. Elizabeth Warren would be willing to even hear his concerns about her proposed wealth tax.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. As tensions rise between the US and China, there's been some chatter of an AI arms race that would see each country scrambling to get and retain some kind of advantage in the field. But Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates, who spoke at the Bloomberg New Economy Forum in Beijing on Thursday, says he has some difficulty understanding how separating or limiting the sharing of scientific research would even work. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: A podiatrist explains heel spurs, the medical condition Trump said earned him a medical deferment from VietnamSee Also:14 things millennials do completely differently from their parentsThe CEO of Celonis, who won customers by sending them handwritten letters, just raised $290 million.
