CyborgsCyborg-like technology is used in medical devices to restore natural human functions. For example, brain implants show promise in treating non-congenital blindness.It is also possible that cyborg technology will be used to enhance human abilities. This is controversial and therefore its future legality is in question. Cyborg enhancement represents an existential risk because it may spark a competitive race whereby people feel they have to become cyborg to compete at school or work. This competition has potential to drive humans to become increasingly robotic with time until humanity essentially no longer exists.
Human InterfacesHuman interfaces are tools that humans use to interact with technologies that may extend our thought processes and expand our experiences. However, they are physically separate.Immersive human interfaces are a potential alternative to actual physical integration of human and machine.
