Towards the Bionic Human

Just Festival at St John's Church, Edinburgh, EH2 4BJ
Mon 12th August 2019
Chair: Professor Emeritus Kenneth Boyd (University of Edinburgh)
Panelists: Jeremy Balfour MSP, Dr Gill Haddow (University of Edinburgh)

In our modern-day technology-driven world, we have accepted the presence of devices and digital improvements that make our lives easier. Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Bioengineering are some of the fastest growing disciplines that directly affect peoples’ lives due to the introduction of bionic body improvements. The development has, however, also met with criticism as an unnatural intervention into human bodies. Our panel will discuss the relationship between the body and technology and share their perspectives on the ethics of bioengineering.
