Microsoft confirmed in a blog post on September 30 that Windows on Arm will be able to run x64 apps with x64 emulation. Windows Insiders will get this capability in test builds in November. The blog post doesn’t mention when this capability will be generally available.

Singapore has developed a blockchain-powered application touted to better manage and secure medical records. Enabling healthcare data to be stored in a digital wallet, the software has been used in a pilot in which COVID-19 discharge memos have been verified more than 1.5 million times.

Work on the application had begun in May during the height of the global pandemic, when SGInnovate roped in Accredify on the project. The Singapore startup specialises in document lifecycle management products, including document management and verification.
Funded by the Ministry of Finance, SGInnovate focuses its investment on deep tech startups that work on emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, quantum technology, and medical technology.
At Tesla’s 2020 shareholder’s meeting, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that the company’s vehicle deliveries in 2020 would be up 30% to 40% from last year, a range that encompasses its previous prediction of 500,000 cars delivered this year.

Musk, who is well-known for exuberant promises, also predicted the company will be able to make a $25,000 full self-driving car within three years.
