Professor Kevin Warwick, the world’s first human cyborg, will give an exciting talk on the field of cybernetics . He instigated a series of pioneering experiments involving the neuro-surgical implantation of a device into the median nerves of his left arm in order to link his nervous system directly to a computer to assess the latest technology for use with the disabled. He was successful with the first extra-sensory (ultrasonic) input for a human and with the first purely electronic communication experiment between the nervous systems of two humans.

He is currently Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading where he carries out research in artificial intelligence, control, robotics and biomedical engineering. The Institute of Physics selected Kevin as one of only 7 eminent scientists to illustrate the ethical impact their scientific work can have: the others being Galileo, Einstein, Curie, Nobel, Oppenheimer and Rotblat.
