Professor Kevin Warwick is Emeritus Professor at Coventry and Reading Universities. His areas of research interests include artificial intelligence, biomedical engineering, control, robotics and cyborgs.

One of Warwick’s areas of research addresses the need for a clear interface linking a biological brain directly with computer technology. He explores how the use of implant and electrode technology can be employed to create biological brains for robots, to enable human enhancement by creating Cyborgs and to diminish the effects of certain neural illnesses and the end result of increasing the range of abilities of the recipients.
