In ancient Greece, the Olympics began some 3,000 years ago as a sporting event to honour the god Zeus.

Live Q&A on human augmentation's future
Cyborg, cyborg, where art thou? Right here. I'm joined by Kaspersky's Marco Preuß to discuss the future of human augmentation with two people living augmented lives.
What’s the future of human augmentation?
Will the future be focused on human augmentation technologies meant to expand independence for people with disabilities, or as a launchpad to help push biological boundaries? Could it be both? That's what we'll be discussing on today's edition of Tomorrow Unlocked livestream talks, this time in association with Kaspersky NEXT, the event about the latest research and technology realities of tomorrow.
Rainer Bock and Marco Preuß talk to two people living augmented lives that are worlds apart. Tilly Lockey lost her limbs at a young age to an illness no doctor thought she would survive. Now she's one of the most important bionic influencers, leading a better life through AI-assisted arms. We're also joined by Wojtek Paprota, founder of Walletmor. This tech startup installs a legitimate payment solution for its users in the form of a bio-implant. Cashless cyborgs built out of sheer curiosity.
What do Tilly and Wojtek have in common, and where do they think the future of human augmentation lies?
