Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Cyborgs (mechanically, electrically, and hydraulically enhanced humans) are an integral part of Transhumanism studies. And they may already already be here. Do humans with cochlear implants, motorized exo-skeletons, artificial heart valves and pacemakers,insulin pumps, etc qualify as cyborgs? Ian will explore present and future developments.
