A UK cybernetics professor is planning to allow a computer to control his body and recreate his emotions in the latest of a series of high-profile experiments.
Professor Kevin Warwick will have a silicon chip implant placed in his arm and connected to his nervous system in an attempt to find out whether the computer will be able to move his fingers by copying signals from his brain.
If the experiment is successful, Warwick said his wife has agreed to also have an implant. This could let them share thoughts. "If someone has to know what I'm thinking, she wants to be the one," he said.
Warwick is conducting the experiment, which he hopes will begin in July 2001, because he believes that mankind needs to become cybernetically enhanced and he was bold in his predictions of where the technology might go.
Er wordt geen melding gemaakt van vrijwilligers die nodig zijn, dus mensen die ook wel zoiets willen hebben moeten nog even wachten .
