Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered applications will help predict how individual patients will respond to immunotherapies in advance of treatment

CHICAGO & NASHVILLE, Tenn.-Sunday 6 January 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

LONDON-Thursday 10 January 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Upstream, the technology company leading the mobile internet revolution in high growth markets, has unveiled that Alcatel smartphones are sold with a suspicious pre-installed weather forecast app, also available on Google Play.

LONDON-Thursday 10 January 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Japan goes into the new year holding 1st place on the Henley Passport Index, with citizens enjoying visa-free/visa-on-arrival access to 190 destinations. In a further display of Asian passport power, Singapore and South Korea now sit in joint 2nd place, with access to 189 destinations around the globe. Germany and France remain in 3rd place going into 2019, with a visa-free score of 188.

The US and the UK continue to drop down the Henley Passport Index — which is based on authoritative data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) — and now sit in joint 6th place, with access to 185 destinations. This is a significant fall from the 1st place position that these countries held in 2015, and while a big question mark remains over the ultimate impact of Brexit, it is unlikely that either country will reclaim the top spot anytime soon.
