At the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, “bladerunner” Oscar Pistorius became the first double leg amputee to participate in the Olympics when he entered the men’s 400 metres race and was part of South Africa’s 4 × 400 metres relay team.
Experts in bionics, robotics and AI work intensively together to find new and better solutions to eliminate most of human disabilities in the coming decades. With the introduction of technical innovations such as bionic legs, bionic eyes and neural prostheses common ideas about disability, identity and human rights are challenged.

As part of the IM-CLeVeR project, the IDSIA robotics laboratory recently released a video-overview of their work on the technologies, architectures and algorithms required to give an iCub robot more human-like abilities. This includes the ability to reason about and manipulate its local environment, and in the process, to acquire new skills that can be applied to future problems.
