Less alone together

Dear Sir or Madam,

It will be Christmas soon - for most a time of joy and family. But not everyone has the chance to spend these days in the circle of close people. It is not only during the Christmas season that many people suffer from loneliness and social isolation, especially in old age or due to illness. How the Norwegian start-up No Isolation wants to solve this problem through technology can be found out in our current interview.

Merry Christmas wishes,

Sonja Koller

That's why we desperately need new concepts. One of them is Ambient Assisted Living.

Analyser system: Epigenomic technology combats disease

Research & Technology, Information and Communication Technology

Much remains unknown about diseases and the way our bodies respond to them, in part because the human genome is the complete DNA assembly that makes each person unique. A Virginia Tech professor and his team of researchers have created new technology to help in understanding how the human body battles diseases.
