A cyborg, short for "cybernetic organism", is a being with both organic and artificial parts.

See for example biomaterials andbioelectronics. The term was coined in 1960 when Manfred Clynes and Nathan S. Kline used it in an article about the advantages of self-regulating human[1] machine systems in outer space. D. S. Halacy's Cyborg: Evolution of the Superman in 1965 featured an introduction which spoke of a "new frontier" that was "not merely space, but more profoundly the relationship between 'inner space' to 'outer space' – a bridge...between mind and [2] matter." The beginning of Cyborg creation began when HCI (human-computer interaction) began. There is a clear distinction between the human and computerized technology in HCI, which differs from cyborgs in that cyborgs act out human functions. The term cyborg is often applied to an organism that has enhanced abilities due to [3] technology, though this perhaps oversimplifies the necessity of feedback for regulating the subsystem. The more strict definition of Cyborg is almost always considered as increasing or enhancing normal capabilities. While cyborgs are commonly thought of as mammals, they might also conceivably be any kind oforganism and the term "Cybernetic organism" has been applied to networks, such as road systems, corporations and governments, which have been classed as such. The term can also apply to micro-organisms which are modified to perform at higher levels than their unmodified counterparts. It is hypothesized that cyborg technology will form a part of the future human evolution. Fictional cyborgs are portrayed as a synthesis of organic and synthetic parts, and frequently pose the question of difference between human and machine as one concerned with morality, free will, and empathy. Fictional cyborgs may be represented as visibly mechanical (e.g. the Cybermen in the Doctor Who franchise or The Borg from Star Trek); or as almost indistinguishable from humans (e.g. the Terminators from the Terminator films, the "Human" Cylons from the re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica etc.) The 1970s television series The Six Million Dollar Man featured one of the most famous fictional cyborgs, referred to as a bionic man; the series was based upon a novel by Martin Caidinentitled Cyborg. Cyborgs in fiction often play up a human contempt for overdependence on technology, particularly when used for war, and when used in ways that seem to threaten free will. Cyborgs are also often portrayed with physical or mental abilities far exceeding a human counterpart (military forms may have inbuilt weapons, among other things).

Origins[edit] The concept of a man-machine mixture was widespread in science fiction before World War II. Moore wrote of Deirdre. The term first appears in print five months earlier when The New York Times reported on the Psychophysiological Aspects of Space Flight Symposium where Clynes and Kline first presented their paper. He uses the term explicitly in the 1962 short story. but which are critical parts of the cybernetics that we work within. He later featured the talking. but by using an external shell [5] (e. living brain of an old scientist.

In 1908. “ A cyborg is essentially a man-machine system in which the control mechanisms of the human portion are modified externally by drugs or regulatory devices so that the being [7] can live in an environment different from the normal one..

A single-array BCI containing 68 electrodes was implanted onto Jerry's visual cortex and succeeded in producing phosphenes. the term "cyborg" is used to refer to a human with bionic. talk number [9] SS4. or robotic. Additionally cochlear implants and magnetic implants which provide people with a sense that they would not otherwise have had can additionally be thought of as creating cyborgs. in 1978. It can also be shaped in desired forms. The work was presented by Di Giacomo and Maresca at MRS 2013 Spring conference on Apr. Dobelle's first prototype was implanted into "Jerry". When observed by optical microscopy the material resembled an artificial “tissue” composed of highly packed cells.Cyborgs tissues structured with carbon nanotubes and plant or fungal cells have been used in artificial tissue engineering to produce new materials for mechanical and electrical uses. In particular using Candida albicans cells cyborg tissue [10] materials with temperature sensing properties have been reported. direct brain implants have been used to treat non-congenital (acquired) blindness. a man with acquired blindness. Cells combined with MWCNTs co-precipitated as a specific aggregate of cells and nanotubes that formed a viscous material. a man blinded in adulthood. as it [12] would be prior to amputation. light and has unique mechanical properties. Individual cyborgs[edit] File:Neil Harbisson Cyborg. In current prosthetic applications.[11] Jens Naumann. implants. This novel material can be used in a wide range of electronic applications from heating to sensing and has the potential to open important new avenues to be exploited in electromagnetic shielding for radio frequency electronics and aerospace technology. The effect of cell drying is manifested by their “ghost cell” appearance. The use of sensors in the artificial C-Leg aids in walking significantly by attempting to replicate the user's natural gait. In vision science. being interviewed about his vision BCI on CBS's The Early Show Generally. Prostheses like the C-Leg and the more advanced iLimb are considered by some to be the first real steps towards the next generation of real-world cyborg applications. Likewise. The system included . The cyborg obtained is inexpensive. A rather specific physical interaction between MWCNTs and cells was observed by electron microscopy suggesting that the cell wall (the most outer part of fungal and plant cells) may play a major active role in establishing a CNTs network and its stabilization. the C-Leg system developed by Otto Bock HealthCare is used to replace a human leg that has been amputated because of injury or illness.04. One of the first scientists to come up with a working brain interface to restore sight was private researcher William Dobelle. dried cells still acted as a stable matrix for the MWCNT network.

A corporation can be considered as an artificial intelligence that makes use of replaceable human components to function. Immediately after his implant. Initially. networks of roads. corporations. Ray was a Vietnam veteran in Georgia who suffered a stroke. Harbisson explained that he did not feel like a cyborg when he started to use the eyeborg. the implant allowed Jerry to see shades of grey in a limited field of vision at a low frame-rate. Phosphenes are spread out across the visual field in what researchers call the starry-night effect. The second generation device used a more sophisticated implant enabling better mapping of phosphenes into coherent vision. His prosthetic device was included within his 2004 passport photograph which has been [19] [20] claimed to confirm his cyborg status. a British scientist. Social cyborgs[edit] More broadly. the full term "cybernetic organism" is used to describe larger networks of communication and control. networks of software. became the first in a series of 16 paying patients to receive Dobelle's second generation implant.cameras mounted on glasses to send signals to the implant. With this in place he successfully carried out a series of experiments including extending his nervous system over the Internet to control a robotic hand. under the heading Bridging the Island of the Colourblind Project. The surgery went successfully. but shrinking electronics and faster computers made his artificial eye more [13] portable and now enable him to perform simple tasks unassisted. Philip Kennedy. For example. In 2002. where V is value and N is number of connected people. Ray's body. People at all ranks can be considered replaceable agents of their functionally intelligent government institutions. he started to feel like a cyborg when he noticed [20] that the software and his brain had united and given him an extra sense.

Unfortunately. had an array of 100 electrodes fired into his nervous system in order to link his nervous system into the Internet. The example above is reminiscent of the "organic paradigm" popular in the late 19th century due to the era's breakthroughs in understanding of cellular biology. marking one of the earliest commercial uses of BCIs. In 2002. started wearing an eyeborg on his head in order to hear [18] colors. Jaap van Till tries to quantify this effect with his Synthecracy Network Law: V ~ N !. whether such a view is desirable or not. Cyborg proliferation in society[edit] . In 2004.

Deep brain stimulation is a neurological surgical procedure used for therapeutic purposes. endurance. such as limitations on speed. titled "Rebuilt: How Becoming Part Computer Made Me More Human. there are two important and different types of cyborgs: the restorative and the enhanced. normative limitations such as aging and disease. By 2004. a fully [25] functioning artificial heart was developed. in favor of definition in terms of upgrades. bionic implants in medicine allow model organs or body parts to mimic the original function more closely. . most notably those with severe cases. Thus. The continued technological development of bionic and nanotechnologies begins to raise the question of enhancement. Please improve it by verifying the claims made and adding inline citations. strength.This section possibly contains original research. Like all invasive procedures. On the contrary. and of the future possibilities for cyborgs which surpass the original functionality of the biological model." Jesse Sullivan became one of the first people to operate a fully robotic limb through a nerve-muscle graft. Tourette syndrome. (November 2007) In medicine[edit] In medicine. Research of Invasive BCIs. It is possible that this technology will also eventually be [27] used with healthy people. [21] Restorative technologies "restore lost function. After the patient is unconscious. and [26] utility. effectively creating a cyborg. the enhanced cyborg "follows a principle. There is no enhancement to the original faculties and processes that were lost. Although prostheses in general supplement lost or damaged body parts with the integration of a mechanical artifice. A brain-computer interface. are implanted into the region of the brain where the cause of the disease is present. The region of the brain is then stimulated by bursts of electrical current to disrupt the oncoming surge of seizures. namely. and limbs". The ethics and desirability of "enhancement prosthetics" have been debated. with its belief that new technologies can assist the human race in developing beyond its present. The key aspect of restorative cyborgization is the repair of broken or missing processes to revert to a healthy or average level of function. epilepsy. This technology could enable people who are missing a limb or are in a wheelchair the power to control the devices that aide them through neural signals sent from the brain implants directly to computers or the devices. the enhanced cyborg intends to exceed normal processes or even gain new functions that were not originally present. organs. more general incapacities. their proponents include the transhumanist movement. has focused on restoring damaged eyesight in the blind and providing functionality to paralyzed people. This process has aided in treating patients diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Opponents of the concept describe what they believe to be biases which propel the development and acceptance of such technologies. and mental disorders. chronic headaches. versions. such as Locked-In syndrome. which utilize electrodes implanted directly into the grey matter of the brain. Statements consisting only of original research may be removed. brain pacemakers or electrodes.Alzheimer's disease. and intelligence. a bias towards functionality and efficiency that may compel assent to a view of human people which de-emphasizes as defining characteristics actual manifestations of humanity and personhood. Michael Chorost wrote a memoir of his experience with cochlear implants. provides a direct path of communication from the brain to an external device.

A similar process has been created to aide people who have lost their vocal cords. The initial success of the techniques has resulted in increased research and the creation of a program called Hybrid-Insect-MEMS. Professor of Chemistry. such as on the frames of their glasses. The transmission of sound would start with a surgery to redirect the nerve that controls the voice and sound production to a muscle in the neck. The signals would then move to a processor which would control the timing and pitch of a voice simulator. the Mark Hyman Jr. which converts the image into a pattern of electrical stimulation. The insect's motion would be controlled from a Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) and could conceivably [31] survey an environment or detect explosives and gas. according to DARPA's Microsystems Technology Office. there have been more [28] improvements in recent years with deep brain stimulation than any available drug treatment. The results. The first insect cyborgs. A specialized camera is worn by the subject. Its goal.) While work to perfect this technology is still being done. Lieber. researchers at Cornell University invented a new surgical procedure to implant artificial [34][35] structures into insects during their metamorphic development. That simulator would then vibrate producing a multitonal sound which could be shaped into words by [29] the mouth. a Harvard Medical [30] School Anesthesiology Professor at Boston Children's Hospital. In the military[edit] Military organizations' research has recently focused on the utilisation of cyborg animals for the purposes of a supposed tactical advantage. on roaches. 2012 article from Harvard University's homepage. If technological advances proceed as planned this technology may be used by thousands of blind people and restore vision to most of them. moths with integrated electronics in their thorax. In 2006. with possible medical implications done by Charles M. HI-MEMS. proceeds to discuss three dimensional cyborg tissue research. published in the journal Nature Materials. Retinal implants are another form of cyborgization in medicine. and Daniel Kohane. although [33] . A chip located in the user's eye would then electrically stimulate the retina with this pattern by exciting certain nerve endings which transmit the image to the optic centers of the brain and the image would then appear to the user. The use of neural implants has recently been attempted. by Peter Reuell of the Harvard Gazette. is to develop "tightly coupled machine-insect interfaces [38] by placing micro-mechanical systems inside the insects during the early stages of metamorphosis". there have already been major advances in the use of electronic stimulation of the retina to allow the eye to sense patterns of light. where a nearby sensor would be able to pick up its electrical signals. Surgically applied electrodes were put on the insect. This experimental device would do away with previously used robotic sounding voice simulators. with success. The theory behind retinal stimulation to restore vision to people suffering from retinitis pigmentosa and vision loss due to aging (conditions in which people have an abnormally low amount of ganglion cells) is that the retinal implant and electrical stimulation would act as a substitute for the missing ganglion cells (cells which connect the eye to the brain. However. Similarly. were demonstrated by the same [36][37] researchers. DARPA is developing a neural implant to remotely control the movement of sharks.deep brain stimulation may put the patient at a higher risk. which were remotely controlled by a human. DARPA has announced its interest in developing "cyborg insects" to transmit data from sensors implanted into the insect during the pupal stage. An August 26. The shark's unique senses would then be exploited to provide data feedback in relation to enemy ship movement or underwater [32] explosives.

Between 1976 –1988 he completed 25 body suspension performances with hooks into the skin. funded by the DARPA HI-MEMS Program. This was followed later that year by the demonstration of wireless control of a "lift[42] assisted" moth-cyborg. Hawkinson's [47] piece Emoter presented how society is now dependent on technology. Wafaa Bilal is an Iraqi-American performance artist who had a small 10 megapixel digital camera [48] surgically implanted into the back of his head. Engineers at the University of California at Berkeley have pioneered the design of a "remote controlled beetle". He has made three films of the inside of his body and has performed with a third hand and a virtual arm. beginning 15 December 2010. Composers such as Brian Eno have developed and utilized software which can build entire musical scores from a few basic mathematical [50] parameters.

He is presently performing as his avatar from [46] his second life site.3rdi. Bilal says that the reason why he put the camera in the back of the head was to make an [49] "allegorical statement about the things we don't see and leave behind. robotics.

Hypothetical [59][60] technologies such as digital tattoo interfaces would blend body modification aesthetics with interactivity and functionality. While not yet cyborgs in the strict definition of Manfred Clynes and [56] Nathan Kline. The Six Million Dollar Man. His Electric Sheep project generates abstract art by combining the work of many computers and people over the [51] internet. This may range from technological instruments being external. In body modification[edit] As medical technology becomes more advanced. and Cylons from the 2004 Battlestar Galactica series. Nonetheless. describes "cyborgization" as an attempt to codify "normalization" through cochlear implantation in young deaf children. would likely argue that most cyborg artists do not qualify to be considered [52] cyborgs. it can be expected for them to [55] incorporate the cyborg idea rather than a strict. and removable to being fully integrated and [54] permanent. In popular culture[edit] Main article: Cyborgs in fiction See also: List of fictional cyborgs Cyborgs have become a well-known part of science fiction literature and other media. Artists that seek to make cyborg-based fantasies a reality often call themselves cyborg artists. Although many of these characters may be technically androids. from sculptures and drawings to digital renderings. Daleks andCybermen from Doctor Who. augmented [57] [58] reality and QR codes are bridging the disconnect between technology and the body. Kamen Rider. temporary. Being so. technological developments like implantable silicon silk electronics. How an artist or their work may be considered cyborg will vary depending upon the interpreter's flexibility with the term. From manga and anime are characters such as 8 Man (the inspiration for RoboCop). Scholars considering a more flexible description of cyborgs may argue it incorporates [53] more than cybernetics. Terminators. Drawing from Paddy Ladd's work on Deaf epistemology and Donna Haraway's Cyborg ontology. or specialized cyborg types.
