Natural Born Cyborgs



Andy Clark

Center for Values in Sci & Tech

Posted: Apr 6, 2013


A professor of logic and metaphysics at Edinburgh University, Clark is the author of “Being There: Putting Brain, Body and World Together Again” and “Natural-Born Cyborgs: Minds, Technologies and the Future of Human Intelligence.” His research interests include robotics and artificial life, the cognitive role of human-built structures, specialization and interactive dynamics in neural systems, and the interplay between language, thought, socio-technological scaffolding and action. He is currently working on predictive coding models of neural function.
