Seminar Title: Don’t talk about disabilities, talk about superpowers!

We need to change the point of view about disability. The human body can balance a missing capability developing new astonishing skills. Technology can highlight those skills and give new opportunity to exploit diversity in a productive way. The aim of the seminar is to practice lateral thinking combining different sensibility with the new technologies. We will see different approaches and new technologies that can improve the quality of life and take out the best from diversity.
