Many people with disabilities have been greatly helped by robot technology. Think of the smart walker or exoskeletons. Not only can we remove the ‘dis’ out of disability, it enables people to even become smarter/more mobile/increase their senses. But is it indeed a step forward for everyone? Smart domotics and the internet-of-things can significantly limit possibilities for self-determination. Even with accessible interfaces, social innovation as a counterpart is desperately needed to empower people. Reserving resources to invest in this is as much crucial as the technological innovation. With a.o. Linda vd Bedem, Bjorn Oddens.
