The Father of The Cyborgs – Panel Discussion
IEEE Brain and the International Neuroethics Society are holding a 1-hour panel discussion on the award-winning documentary, ‘The Father of the Cyborgs’ at 3:00pm EDT on September 15, 2022.
“The film presents a portrait of Dr. Phil Kennedy, a brilliant yet divisive figure, who made global headlines in the 1990s for implanting wire electrodes in the brain of a paralyzed man and, more recently, for traveling to South America to have electrodes implanted inside his own brain in order to continue his research.”
Discussion of the film will address the many ethical issues that arise in the film. Our panel of experts will explore various technological and ethical issues raised in the film and address questions submitted by participants.
