  1. Cyborg morals, cyborg values, cyborg ethics.Kevin Warwick - 2003 - Ethics and Information Technology 5 (3):131-137.
    The era of the Cyborg is now upon us. This has enormous implications on ethical values for both humans and cyborgs. In this paper the state of play is discussed. Routes to cyborgisation are introduced and different types of Cyborg are considered. The author's own self-experimentation projects are described as central to the theme taken. The presentation involves ethical aspects of cyborgisation both as it stands now and those which need to be investigated in the near future as the effects (...)

    The Cyborg Revolution.Kevin Warwick - 2014 - NanoEthics 8 (3):263-273.
    This paper looks at some of the different practical cyborgs that are realistically possible now. It firstly describes the technical basis for such cyborgs then discusses the results from experiments in terms of their meaning, possible applications and ethical implications. An attempt has been made to cover a wide variety of possibilities. Human implantation and the merger of biology and technology are important factors here. The article is not intended to be seen as the final word on these issues, but (...)

  4. Implications and consequences of robots with biological brains.Kevin Warwick - 2010 - Ethics and Information Technology 12 (3):223-234.
    In this paper a look is taken at the relatively new area of culturing neural tissue and embodying it in a mobile robot platform—essentially giving a robot a biological brain. Present technology and practice is discussed. New trends and the potential effects of and in this area are also indicated. This has a potential major impact with regard to society and ethical issues and hence some initial observations are made. Some initial issues are also considered with regard to the potential (...)

    Hidden Interlocutor Misidentification in Practical Turing Tests.Huma Shah & Kevin Warwick - 2010 - Minds and Machines 20 (3):441-454.
    Response to Floridi et al, 2008/2009. Based on insufficient evidence, and inadequate research, Floridi and his students report inaccuracies and draw false conclusions in their Minds and Machines evaluation, which this paper aims to clarify. Acting as invited judges, Floridi et al. participated in nine, of the ninety-six, Turing tests staged in the finals of the 18th Loebner Prize for Artificial Intelligence in October 2008. From the transcripts it appears that they used power over solidarity as an interrogation technique. As (...)

    Some Implications of a Sample of Practical Turing Tests.Kevin Warwick, Huma Shah & James Moor - 2013 - Minds and Machines 23 (2):163-177.
    A series of imitation games involving 3-participant (simultaneous comparison of two hidden entities) and 2-participant (direct interrogation of a hidden entity) were conducted at Bletchley Park on the 100th anniversary of Alan Turing’s birth: 23 June 2012. From the ongoing analysis of over 150 games involving (expert and non-expert, males and females, adults and child) judges, machines and hidden humans (foils for the machines), we present six particular conversations that took place between human judges and a hidden entity that produced (...)

    The disappearing human–machine divide.Kevin Warwick - 2013 - Approaching Religion 3 (2):3-15.
    In this article a look is taken at some of the different ways in which the human–machine divide is rapidly disappearing. In each case the technical basis is described and then some of the implications are also considered. In particular results from experiments are discussed in terms of their meaning and application possibilities. The article is written from the perspective of scientific experimentation opening up realistic possibilities to be faced in the future, rather than giving conclusive comments. In each case (...)

    Machine humour: examples from Turing test experiments.Huma Shah & Kevin Warwick - 2017 - AI and Society 32 (4):553-561.
    In this paper, we look at the possibility of a machine having a sense of humour. In particular, we focus on actual machine utterances in Turing test discourses. In doing so, we do not consider the Turing test in depth and what this might mean for humanity, rather we merely look at cases in conversations when the output from a machine can be considered to be humorous. We link such outpourings with Turing’s “arguments from various disabilities” used against the concept (...)

    Creating practical cyborgs.Kevin Warwick - 2014 - Pragmatics and Cognition 22 (1):159-181.
    In this paper we consider the creative realisation of new beings — namely, cyborgs. These can be brought about in a number of ways, and several versions are discussed. A key feature is merging biological and technological sections into an overall living operational whole. A practical look is taken at how the use of implant and electrode technology can be employed to open up new paths between humans/animals and technology, especially linking the brain directly with external entities. Actual experimentation in (...)
