Google is working with Israeli museum Yad Vashem to make Holocaust era documents more accessible. The project will encourage those searching for victims’ names on Google to help identify pictures and archived material. Google has already indexed over 130,000 documents and hopes the public effort will help expand the database. In other news, astronomers have identified the oldest and most distant galaxy yet! What can be seen as a faint light, has been approaching us for 13.2 billion years and existed when the universe was 480 million years old. The discovery fits cosmologists’ timelines of the first stars being formed 200-300 million years after the Big Bang. And finally, a recent survey of 1,201 CEOs revealed that businesses are focusing primarily on innovation, expecting future growth ahead. Nearly 70% of the companies are investing heavily in IT and 54% are actively funding emerging technologies. Retaining top talent, green sustainable and bringing in outside talent are among the CEOs top priorities.
