Thank you for reading my articles and engaging with the hand picked PICANTE News!

Here are a few things you should know about me!

After accumulating enough experience by launching and building a successful media and events organizer company in the gaming industry, the opportunity to also move into more verticals just came naturally.

I've started writting in 2009 and thanks to my webdesigner skills, managed to develop some recognized review portals in several industries.

In 2015, I have moved deeper into journalism and media by co-founding a B2B publishing and events organizing company which we run in parallel with PICANTE New. My experience has lead me to move into the B2B sector and write about compliance updates and report around the happenings of the online and land based gaming sector.

In 2018 I've been invited to speak at a local TEDx event about Global Reputation Management in the Digital Era. You can view my talk on the following link on YouTube:

I have hunger for knowledge and always curious about what happens in tech and this is one of the reasons I've started writing and publishing news about several industries, such as AI, VR / AR, Blockhchain, Fintech. Came to realize there are many new things that are often overlooked in the busy media streams, thus would like to bring you some news about some of the newest releases and happenings.

But enough about me, I am sure you are interested in reading the news :)

Learn more about Quantum Technology and Quantum Mechanics with Dr. André Xuereb at TCE2019 Prague

Reading Time: 2 minutes


Decades of research, laboratory curiosities, and world-changing effect notes are starting to be implemented worldwide and the age of quantum is here.

Whenever we are talking about the atomic clock (which already 69 years old) or supercomputers, everything in the natural world can be described by quantum mechanics.

Although, the theory was born a century ago, what is notable about the effort now is that the challenges are no longer scientific but have become matters of engineering. A new industry is born and the future definitely looks exciting as the quantum industry covers far more than just quantum computing. Quantum technology harnesses the strange behavior of tiny particles for a whole range of applications, including navigation tools, enhanced imaging technology, and extremely precise timing devices.

Quantum techniques can also be used to improve the efficiency and capacity of communication channels on a global scale and the method used is Photonics.

The method is focused on the use of light particles, photons, to transmit or carry information. This has been proved to be a less resource-intensive process, since photons are more accessible than other sources of energy, and fiber cables weigh around 40 times less than cables currently used for telephone lines and broadband internet.

During the inaugural PICANTE Tech Conference Europe, we are bringing together industry leaders, scientist and will discuss (among other topics) the investment opportunities in Quantum Technology and Nanotech.

The panel discussion which is titled “Discussions and Investment Opportunities in Quantum Technology and Nanotech” will be joined by Dr. André Xuereb, Professor of Atomic and Quantum Physics at the University of Malta.

About Dr. André Xuereb

André Xuereb is physicist from Malta. He read for an undergraduate degree in mathematics and physics at the University of Malta, a Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the University of Southampton in the UK, and a master degree in entrepreneurship at the University of Malta. He is a professor of atomic and quantum physics at the University of Malta, is Science Policy Officer of the Malta Chamber of Scientists, represents Malta on several European research networks, and was recently elected as the first Maltese member of the Global Young Academy. André has an active career in science, having established and leading the quantum research group at the University of Malta, and co-owns an educational software startup.

PICANTE Tech Conference Europe is designed to bring both people and knowledge together and provides the excellent ecosystem of networking and learning opportunities without interruptions with emphasis on comfort and communication. After learning from genuine world-class experts and wayseers, meeting achievers shaping the B2B ecosystem, all attendees will get the chance to grab a drink and relax while networking at the evening social gathering.


Seats are limited (Super Early Bird Rate – valid through 30th of June)

Annual awards program recognizes outstanding health and medical technology products and companies

Elekta (EKTA-B.ST), today announced that MedTech Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global health and medical technology market, has presented the “Medical Device Engineering Breakthrough” award in the 2019 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program to Elekta for its Elekta Unity MR-linac.

Elekta Unity combines two technologies: a state-of-the-art 1.5T MRI scanner and a best-in-class 7 MV linear accelerator, driven by breakthrough real-time adaptive radiotherapy software. It provides the ability to reshape the dose based on daily changes in shape, size and position of the tumor and surrounding healthy anatomy, as visualized with MRI, and then enables accurate dose delivery with real-time visualization of the tumor.

“We reserve our Medical Device Engineering Breakthrough award for recognizing transformative technology and Elekta Unity is a shining example of groundbreaking medical technology deserving of this designation,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “In addition to Elekta Unity displaying breakthrough engineering that combines precision radiation therapy and high-field MR imaging, Elekta Unity addresses one of the most critical healthcare issues in the world with a focus on providing the next generation of cancer care.”

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records, mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,500 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.

“It’s an honor for Elekta to win this prestigious award,” said Richard Hausmann, Elekta’s President and CEO. “The Unity system’s breakthrough technology demonstrates our leadership in precision radiation medicine and commitment to the needs of the patient and cancer care team delivering treatment.”

Robert Woolston, Managing Director at DCA Design International, Elekta’s design partner for the MR-linac system, commented, “Congratulations to all involved in the development of Elekta Unity. We are delighted to see this system winning award after award and most importantly to see it improving cancer patients’ radiotherapy experience and outcomes, as it ushers in a transformation in precision and personalized cancer treatment.”

Through Elekta Unity’s integrated and responsive software, tumors and surrounding tissue can be precisely located, their movement tracked, and treatment adapted in real time based on live information. This allows treatment plans to be adapted while the patient is on the table in response to changes in tumor position, shape, biology and the relationship to sensitive organs over time.
