Taylor Swift’s new music video sets first-day record on YouTube

Taylor Swift returned from her self-imposed social media exile with a single that’s already breaking records. Her music video for ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ raked in over 31 million views on YouTube in its first 24 hours, surpassing Adele’s previous high-water mark of 27.7 million views of ‘Hello’ for most-watched video on the platform in a single day.

While the song was released on Friday, the music video landed on YouTube yesterday. Of course, some of those views might be from fans who get a slightly better chance of snagging tickets to her upcoming tour if they watch her video multiple times per day. Or, for a better place in virtual line, if they buy her album, which comes out November 10th.

It took less than seven months for ‘Despacito’ to dethrone ‘Gangnam Style’ for lifetime YouTube views. But with fans shrewdly egged on by Swift’s marketing machine to keep watching day-in and day-out, perhaps ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ will surpass the 3.4 billion-view record held by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s dance track in a lot less time.

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
