A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Real Madrid have been long-standing suitors of the 25-year-old and Robinho acknowledges that a deal could be done if all parties wish to make a move happen – even with a long-term contract in France taken into account.A man who spent three years at Santiago Bernabeu between 2005 and 2008 said in AS : “Neymar is a very important player for the Brazilian team. “I think he could play at Madrid, but it will be quite difficult, because he has a five-year contract with PSG. It’s a possibility.”Like Neymar, Robinho came through the ranks at Brazilian side Santos before seeing his potential noted by leading sides in Europe.He left his homeland for the Spanish capital, but never truly settled and has led a rather nomadic existence since leaving the Bernabeu for Manchester City.Robinho has recently agreed to link up with Turkish side Sivassport, but a man with 100 international caps to his name still keeps a close eye on events in Madrid.The 2017-18 campaign has made for difficult viewing, with Zinedine Zidane’s side enduring a humbling slump , but they are being backed to come through a testing period.“I think it’s just a moment, sometimes you can go through a bad time, but Real Madrid is Real Madrid,” said Robinho.“They still have opportunities to improve. People want Madrid to win all year long. I am a Madridista and I always want the team to go well.”He added on under-fire Zidane: “I think he has to remain the team’s technician. He is one of the best coaches in the world.”That may be true, but Real have struggled under their French coach this season to crash out of La Liga title contention and the Copa del Rey.The Champions League now offers their last realistic route to major silverware , with Robinho of the opinion that a third successive continental crown could be secured – although they will have to go through Neymar and PSG at the last-16 stage in order to keep that dream alive.“Yes, it is the only option,” said Robinho. “They are going to play two tough matches against PSG, but why not? There’s a chance. “Madrid can win the title for a third consecutive year. You have to try to win it. It is hard, but it is possible.”

Facebook The research being conducted at the Big Data Analytics Centre will allow the Government to predict where on the wireless spectrum there are unused radio waves that can be put to work to ensure that the wireless networks Canadians depend on are reliable and accessible, regardless of traffic load.Spectrum is a scarce resource, especially as the amount of data traffic on wireless networks continues to grow exponentially. In particular, the ubiquity of smartphones and other wireless devices has triggered an explosion in the amount of data travelling over wireless networks. That’s why the Government is investing in technology and infrastructure that allow Canada to optimize the limited amount of wireless spectrum available.The research being conducted at the Big Data Analytics Centre has potential applications in many other sectors of the economy beyond telecommunications. The technologies that enable wireless spectrum to be managed dynamically can be used for connected cars and other systems that rely on merging advanced machinery and networked sensors and software, known as the Internet of Things.Quotes“To power their smartphones, tablets, TVs and radios, Canadians rely on the judicious use of wireless spectrum. We can’t make more wireless spectrum, but we can make better use of it. To do that, we need to understand exactly how it’s being used and where. We need to know, in real time, where there are unused radio waves that could be put to work. Big data is the key to understanding that. It gives us the power to turn data into useful insights that allow us to predict where the surplus capacity will be at any given time. The research being conducted at the Big Data Analytics Centre has the potential to transform not only the telecommunications sector but all sectors of the economy.”– The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada“The Communications Research Centre is honoured to have Minister Bains here to officially open the Big Data Analytics Centre, the first visualization laboratory of its kind within the Government. Using big data analytics, cloud computing, crowdsourced information, data fusion and state-of-the-art visualization, the Centre enables our researchers to work with big data in ways that were previously not possible to support sustainable spectrum management and help foster innovation in Canada.”– Dr. Jean Luc Bérubé, President, Communications Research Centre“Canada is fortunate that Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada is focused on extending the benefits of our increasingly critical wireless infrastructure. Cognitive Systems is delighted to collaborate with the CRC, a world-class research organization, to better understand and monitor spectrum for effective use and growth. Our work with the CRC and the ability to use facilities like the Big Data Analytics Centre aid the development and testing of Cognitive’s world-leading sensor technology.”– Hugh Hind, Chief Executive Officer, Cognitive Systems Corp.Quick factsWireless spectrum refers to the invisible radio waves that are responsible for everything from TV and radio broadcasting to data and phone service for smartphones.The Communications Research Centre conducts world-class research focused on optimizing the use of wireless spectrum for next-generation mobile services.The Big Data Analytics Centre is a research facility that collects, analyzes and visualizes this country’s wireless spectrum.The Big Data Analytics Centre is available for use by other government departments and for collaboration with industry and academia.Related productCommunications Research Centre backgrounderAssociated linkCommunications Research CentreFollow Minister Bains on Twitter: @MinisterISEDBackgrounderCommunications Research CentreEnabling the future of digital Canada: Government innovation to grow Canadian innovationAt the Communications Research Centre (CRC) in Ottawa, scientists are helping Canada to become the best in the world at managing spectrum, the airwaves that enable wireless innovations.
