Possibility of Cyborg

One night I was watching television. The show?Ripley's Believe It or Not, Philippines version showed in GMA 7. There it features about a professor on cyrbernetics and a possibility of real cyborg in the near future. After watching that, I surf the net to check this person named Professor Kevin Warwick.

Kevin Warwick is Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading, England, where he carries out research in artificial intelligence, control, robotics and biomedical engineering. He is also Director of the University KTP Centre, which links the University with Small to Medium Enterprises and raises over £2Million each year in research income for the University.

Kevin was born in Coventry, UK and left school to join British Telecom, at the age of 16. At 22 he took his first degree at Aston University, followed by a PhD and a research post at Imperial College, London. He subsequently held positions at Oxford, Newcastle and Warwick universities before being offered the Chair at Reading, at the age of 33.

In the show on Ripley's, he was interviewed by some interviewer of Ripley's and according to him, that in the near future a technology would arise. This technology will soon out wit human being as much more inteligent than us.

Cybernetics as a matter of fact is already existing today. Kevin is one of them because he implanted himself with circuits connected to his nerves. Computers react when they sensed he is coming, like his computer will do autocheck on his emails before he could sit in front of his computer, doors connected to computers are automatically opened when he pass by, lights on and off and so on and so forth. He even has convinced his wife to get implanted with circuits and it was successful.

This is a cool technology and I found it useful. Although it seems to be frightening because it would create a war between human and cyborg, I believe that no computers can be much more inteligent that us humans. However, it will lead me to think about the 'end of the world' and some 'biblical prophesies' and many other new age stuffs. Moreover it would tickle my imagination and lead me to imagine things like Terminator, Transformers and other robot -related films today.
