Telemedicine researchers at the University of Valladolid have proposed a series of recommendations to programmers to improve the security of health applications on mobile devices. According to these specialists, it is a rapidly growing area, but the insecure handling of clinical and medical data can be critical for users.
Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) presents Crowd-UC3M, its first call for participants in its search for crowdfunding for thirteen R+D+i projects. The objective is to establish new channels for collaboration, interaction and implication with society, which will contribute to social, economic and cultural progress.
Researchers at the University Carlos III of Madrid, in collaboration with the Spanish firm Aliad Conocimiento y Servicio, have developed a software platform to help promote active and healthy aging in the context of an European project. The system contains news, forums, videos, social networking, mobile applications and games to promote mental activity and a training program. The offer has already attracted more than 11,000 users and is expected to reach 20,000 at the end of this year
Millions of Twitter users are constantly reporting where they are and what they are doing. With this information, two Spanish computer science experts suggest using geolocalized tweets for urban planning and land use. They have already done it in Manhattan, Madrid and London and have been able to identify, for example, nightlife areas of these large cities.
Computer languages and systems researchers at the Autonomous University of Madrid have developed an application called SentBuk, which is capable of deducing the emotional states of Facebook users by analysing their messages using algorithms. The authors believe that this tool could be useful to online educators, as it would furnish them with similar information to that obtained by in-person teachers when they look at their students’ faces.
Researchers from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and the Universidad de Málaga (UMA) have collaborated with the consulting and technology company Indra on the development of a new advanced simulator of training in cybersecurity, a system that teaches users how to carry out computer forensics, prevent cyber attacks and learn techniques of cyber defense.
ARQUIMEA, a company that began in the Business Incubator in the Science Park of the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), will be testing technology it has developed in the International Space Station. The technology is based on intelligent materials that allow objects to be sent into orbit without the use of explosives.
The Spanish start-up Aglaris Cell is close to launching onto the market the world’s first bioreactor that cultures cell in a fully automated way, without using toxic additives. The device has attracted interest from the University of Oxford and the pharmaceutical giant, Merk.
Demede Engineering & Research, a company that receives support from the Business Incubator at the Universidad Carlos III in Madrid’s (UC3M) Science Park (Vivero de Empresas del Parque Científico), designs and manufactures prototypes of waste Management plants dedicated to research. Their designs are based on the principles of “green engineering”, which they also apply to the development of techniques for the sustainable production of graphene and the synthesis of pharmaceutical products.
