::: Cyborg Kevin Warwick at the European Futurists Conference Lucerne :::

::: European Futurists Conference Lucerne ::::
Yesterday Kevin Warwick spoke on "Upgrading Humans - Mental Enhancements via Implants" at the "Making Sense of the Future" conference in Lucerne, Switzerland (November 22-24): "Clearly," Warwick explains in his blurb,
"an individual whose brain is part human - part machine can have abilities that far surpass those who remain with a human brain alone. Will such an individual exhibit different moral and ethical values to those of a human? If so, what effects might this have on society?"

Here's a link to Kevin Warwick's bio. Here's a link to running notes on Warwick's keynote posted by writer and Knight Fellow at Stanford University Bruno Giussani.
