I gave a talk at International Conference on Embodied Cognitive Science (ECogS 2022) with a live demonstration.
Cybernetic Humanity: Exploring the self emerging from human-computer integration
With the emergence of computer technologies, computers are no longer just tools of humans but are deeply intervening in our bodies and behavior. When humans integrate with computers and acquire abilities and different bodies beyond what we have, to what extent are we ourselves? In this talk, I would like to explore what the “self” will be like when computers and humans integrate through several projects including electric muscle stimulation, virtual reality, face morphing processing and human-robot system. Lastly, I would like to discuss the potential agenda of Cybernetic Humanity: new shape of humanity emerged from the integration of humans and computers.
