The disappearing human–machine divide
Keywords:Cybernetics, Robotics, Biomedical engineering, Technology, Body, Human, Brain research, Brain chemistry, Philosophy, Posthumanism
AbstractIn this article a look is taken at some of the different ways in which the human–machine divide is rapidly disappearing. In each case the technical basis is described and then some of the implications are also considered. In particular results from experiments are discussed in terms of their meaning and application possibilities. The article is written from the perspective of scientific experimentation opening up realistic possibilities to be faced in the future, rather than giving conclusive comments. In each case consideration is also given to some of the philosophical questions that arise.
