Good morning readers! Here are Chroma’s top picks from today’s tech news. Enjoy the read and follow us for more on our LinkedIn page.

 

  1. Microsoft becomes world’s most valuable company after passing Apple for first time since 2010. On Wednesday, Microsoft’s market value reached $850bn (£664bn), seeing it surpass its old rival for the first time since 2010 following a prolonged decline in Apple’s share price.

  2. Scientists develop a clock so accurate it could detect dark matter. NIST’s atomic clock becomes so sensitive that moving it further from the Earth’s surface would produce a noticeable difference in how the clock “ticks”. Practically, this means the clock can measure not just time… but space-time.

  3. 32 electric cars you’ll see on the road by 2025. As governments move to increase emissions standards, even traditional manufacturers anticipate electric vehicles playing a big role in the near future.
  4. New all-electric Audi e-tron GT concept wows at LA. The new Audi concept has been revealed at the 2018 Los Angeles Motor Show – and it could quite possibly be the toughest test of the Tesla Model S yet.

  5. Instagram is now using AI to describe photos for users with visual impairments. The changes will allow screen readers to describe photos, either automatically using AI or by reading custom descriptions added by users.
