Host Nick Margerrison welcomes two scientists who specialize in transhumanism, or the merging of man with machine.

Professor Kevin Wariwick is one of the world’s first cyborgs. He is the first person to be implanted with an RFID chip. He shares some of the research and technology that he is working on to merge organic tissue, such as humans and animals, with computers and machines.

Professor Noel Sharkey works with nanotechnology and artificial intelligence offers his opinion on the ethics of merging man and machines. This leads on to a lively debate ranging from microchipping children to using robots for warfare.
