Supersonic air travel is back. 15 years after the Concorde was grounded, everyone from aerospace companies to NASA to small startups is working to bring back ultrafast civilian aircraft. We take a look at the engineering challenges that make supersonic flight so difficult, and try to figure out what’s different about this new generation of planes.

Artificial intelligence is governing more and more of our lives, but the way it sees and understands the world is completely different from you or me. For this video, we found a way to look around inside AI’s “brain.” First, we asked fellow humans to guess paintings made by a computer program. And then, the opposite: we asked AI to guess our doodles. It’s a game of Pictionary that explains a lot about our future alongside AI.
