The Cybathlon: Lessons Learnt

Robert Riener (Dr)
The Cybathlon is a new kind of championship, where people with physical disabilities compete against each other at tasks of daily life, with the aid of robotic technologies. The Cybathlon promote the development of useful technologies that facilitate the lives of people with disabilities. While there are great new technologies available that support people with disabilities, we are still far away from mimicking the human musculoskeletal system, or from even augmenting human performance to give us supernatural power over a large range of body functions and tasks.

Sexual selection, what else?

Valérian Zeender (tbd)
You surely know about Darwin’s natural selection, which is one of the selection force acting on species' evolutionary trajectories, shaping species' appearance and behaviour. But what about one of the other main selection force driving evolution, sexual selection? I will tell about the similarities between the dance floor of one of Langstrasse’s nightclub and the Fruit Flies courting on your kitchen’s rotten fruits. I will explain why it is important to better understand this selection process and how it is possible for sexual selection to select for traits that sometimes reduce survival.
