WoWT Podcast Episode 050: Do Cyborgs Dream Of Bionic Sheep?

Released Thursday, 16th January 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
We promised to talk about cyborgs, what they are, where the idea originated, and why it's so important to understand how to merge our minds and bodies with machines over the long term and here we are. On this week's episode we dive into the origins of the word and the history of the technology involved, sort out some nomenclature, and cover why we'll want to join our brains with artificial intelligence and bodies with computers, especially if we'll want to explore deep space.
