Episode Description:

In Episode 26 we interview the world’s first Cyborg, Dr. Kevin Warwick, Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading, England, where he carries out research in artificial intelligence, control, robotics and biomedical engineering. We discuss artificial intelligence, the benefits and the potential pitfalls of robots taking over the world and enslaving us all. Warwick became the first Cyborg in 1998 when he had a RFID transmitter chip implanted in his body and since then he’s only expanded the possibilities. He’s the author of the book, I Cyborg, you’ve seen him on the History Channel, the Today Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Sky TV in the UK, and about a million other programs, tonight he was all ours. We had some great questions for our viewers, and a new Odd Fact with Matt Moniz. How long before Cyborgs take over? Tune in to find out! If the truth is out there… 30 Odd Minutes will find it… but only by sheer accident.
