A Philosopher Asks: Can you Become a Robot?
Can a person become a cyborg (part-human, part-machine)? Or a Robot (mind transferred to a machine)? Or even have our brains transplanted to younger, healthier bodies?
Dr. David Hershenov, Professor of Philosophy at UB, will join us for this engaging Nickel City Forum. Can technology enable us to survive the passing of our physical bodies? Can our minds be transported? In other words, what is the essence of “me” and how does it relate to my physical body?
