2. Specialists of the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI have developed radioisotope power sources based on beta-voltaic power supplies using nanocluster films of the radioisotope nickel-63. This will help to create safe nuclear batteries with a lifetime of 100 years for pacemakers, miniature sugar sensors or arterial pressure, telemetry systems for remote objects, micro-robots, and devices of long autonomous work.



3. Fight against cyber threats has been discussed in Moscow. All educational and medical institutions in Russia will be connected to modern communication systems. Also there will be a system of information exchange between companies and law enforcement agencies for prompt reaction to cyber threats in the country. Vladimir Putin said all this at the International Congress on Cybersecurity recently.
