Нuman capital quality becomes the central theme of today's world. And it means that both - policy and economy - today are measured namely by social changes. Doing good is always pleasant, but doing good for one of the most complex and vulnerable groups is twice pleasant. Deaf-blind people, seemingly, destined by nature for existence in the darkness, really – are very radiant personalities, who teach us to look at the world in a positive way.

“Searching for new technologies for commercialization, I didn't notice that there were people next to us, who primarily feel the need of modern developments. For them it is a question of existence and social development. The problem of vision and hearing disorder can affect anyone of us at any time. Who is ready to live in a world of darkness, silence, without day and night changing, in the absence of time and space? It is a challenge and a super-task: create fundamentally new technology to adapt the deaf-blind world to the world of those, who can see and hear. Now there is a real opportunity to bring together all global researches and developments in the field of visual and hearing impairments and to create a unique solution at the crossroads of technology and scientific fields that extends beyond today's view on the traditional rehabilitation means.”
