CYBORG IS - BUT CYBORG OUGHT?
Date: 01 July 2004 
Philosophers have debated the difference between the words “is” and “ought” for 2,000 years. Ninety percent of the emails we receive describe thrilling developments in technology but do not question whether there consequences - known and unknown - are a good idea. Here’s another example: “TransVision will address how artificial intelligence, biotechnology, nanotechnology and other emerging technologies are altering humanity's sense of self as well as expanding and diversifying our means of expression and self-actualization”. The event does feature two excellent keynote speakers: Steve Mann, inventor of the wearable computer; and performance artist Stelarc who has provided his likeness and personality for an intelligent prosthetic head. 6 to 8 August , Toronto.
