Upgrading Humans - Technical Realities and New Morals

Linking the human nervous system to computers - the technical problems and the moral implications

Professor Kevin Warwick, Professor of Cybernetics at University of Reading and alumnus of Imperial College London is aka Captain Cyborg because he has implanted a device in his left arm which links his nervous system to a compputer. How does such work aid patients with neural illnesses and how do computers interface directly with the brain? What does this mean as a form of human upgrade? He believes that an individual whose brain is part human/part macine can have abilities that surpass those with only a human brain. Will such an individual exhibit different moral and ethical values to those of a human? What effects might this have on society?
