Kevin Warwick

Kevin Warwick is a professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading, England, where he carries out research in artificial intelligence, robotics and biomedical engineering. Most notably he is the author of I, Cyborg a book where he documents how he became the world's first cyborg in a series of ground-breaking scientific experiments.

In 2002, under the heading Project Cyborg, Prof. Warwick had an array of 100 electrodes fired into his nervous system in order to link it to the internet. Then he successfully carried out a series of experiments including extending his nervous system over the internet to control a robotic hand, a loudspeaker, amplifier and to communicate with his wife. This is a form of extended sensory input and the first direct electronic communication between the nervous systems of two humans. (For more watch the documentary Building Gods)

Kevin's research was selected by National Geographic International for a 1 hour documentary, titled "I, Human" which was broadcast in 143 countries and translated into 23 different languages.
