A robot arm apparatus according to the present disclosure includes: one or a plurality of a joint unit that joins a plurality of links constituting a multi-link structure; an acquisition unit that acquires an on-screen enlargement factor of a subject imaged by an imaging unit attached to the multi-link structure; and a driving control unit that controls driving of the joint unit based on a state of the joint unit and the enlargement factor.


A guiding device, a guiding method, a program, and an information storage medium are provided which can perform output control of a guidance related to a volume at which to input voice using the recognition ranking of a received voice. A voice receiving section (46) receives a voice. When given information is identified as a result of recognition of the voice, an output control section (58) performs control so as to output a guidance related to a volume at which to input voice in a mode corresponding to the recognition ranking of the information.


An input smoothing circuit 12 is provided between an input line 4 and a ground line 6. A high-side transistor M1 and a low-side transistor M2 are provided in series between the two ends of the input smoothing circuit 12. The high-side transistor M1 and the low-side transistor M2 are arranged side by side in a first direction (X direction) on a circuit board. Two current loops that run through the smoothing circuit 12, the high-side transistor M1, and the low-side transistor M2 are formed to be substantially linearly symmetrical with respect to an axis of symmetry 32 that extends in the first direction.


A game delivery device and so on are implemented which enable an operable object to be operated with increased ease, in the case where game images designed to be executed in a dedicated game device are delivered to a terminal. The game delivery device includes execution means for executing a plurality of game programs designed to be executed in a dedicated game device in accordance with operation information; game program selection means for selecting one of the game programs on the basis of a selection instruction from a terminal; delivery means for delivering, to the terminal, image information based on execution of the selected game program; play mode acquisition means for acquiring a play mode selection instruction indicating whether the selected game program is to be played in a normal mode or an auxiliary mode; and auxiliary means for, when the auxiliary mode is selected, providing an auxiliary function that makes an operation of an operable object of the selected game program easier than the operation of the operable object designed to be performed in the dedicated game device.

The proposed pilot line project WAYTOGO FAST objective is to leverage Europe leadership in Fully Depleted Silicon on Insulator technology (FDSOI) so as to compete in leading edge technology at node 14nm and beyond preparing as well the following node transistor architecture. Europe is at the root of this breakthrough technology in More Moore law. The project aims at establishing a distributed pilot line between 2 companies: - Soitec for the fabrication of advanced engineered substrates (UTBB: Ultra Thin Body and BOx (buried oxide)) without and with strained silicon top film. - STMicroelectronics for the development and industrialization of state of the art FDSOI technology platform at 14nm and beyond with an industry competitive Power-Performance-Area-Cost (PPAC) trade-off. The project represents the first phase of a 2 phase program aiming at establishing a 10nm FDSOI technology for 2018-19. A strong added value network is created across this project to enhance a competitive European value chain on a European breakthrough and prepare next big wave of electronic devices. The consortium gathers a large group of partners: academics/institutes, equipment and substrate providers, semiconductor companies, a foundry, EDA providers, IP providers, fabless design houses, and a system manufacturer. E&M will contribute to the objective of installing a pilot line capable of manufacturing both advanced SOI substrates and FDSOI CMOS integrated circuits at 14nm and beyond. Design houses and electronics system manufacturer will provide demonstrator and enabling IP, to spread the FDSOI technology and establish it as a standard in term of leading edge energy efficient CMOS technology for a wide range of applications battery operated (consumer , healthcare, Internet of things) or not. Close collaboration between the design activities and the technology definition will tailor the PPAC trade-off of the next generation of technology to the applications needs.

The EN-ACTI2NG program (European Network on Anti-Cancer Immuno-Therapy Improvement by modification of CAR and TCR Interactions and Nanoscale Geometry) emanates from the recent clinical evidence that T cells expressing engineered tumor-specific immune receptors can eradicate certain tumors that do not respond to conventional treatment. To obtain T cells with reactivity to a wider array of tumors and to improve efficiency and on- and off-target toxicity are current challenges Therefore the EN-ACTI2NG program aims 1) to train PhD students with expertise in development of new and improved T cell-mediated cancer immuno-therapies; 2) to endow the PhD students with the ability to establish efficient communication between the academic and industrial research environments and between scientists and the general public; 3) to improve T cell mediated anti-cancer immuno-therapy by the identification and development of new cancer-specific immune receptors and enhancing their function by identifying and modifying their molecular mechanism of action. To reach these objectives we have designed individual research projects ranging from biophysical analysis of immune receptors, via molecular modification of their structure and testing their tumor killing capacity in cell-based and pre-clinical assays to product development. Secondments will assure that each PhD student will be exposed to these complementary approaches and that there will be synergic feedback between the projects, producing innovative results that could otherwise not be achieved. Extensive training in research-specific skills, career development and a continuous training in communication skills will allow the PhD students to become facilitators of the process of transformation of scientific innovation into products with social and economic value. As such, the EN-ACTI2NG program should contribute to overcoming the more general challenge of converting the European Community into an innovation-driven society.
