2015 Christmas Lectures Part 3 – Robots, Cyborgs, and Ghosts

For the final lecture in this Christmas series, I thought I’d go back to the early days of robotics at the Royal Institute for inspiration.

Back in 2000 Professor Kevin Warwick delivered the Christmas Lecture.  He is a pioneer in the robotics world having implanted a silicon chip into his nervous system nearly 20 years ago.

I hope you enjoy the clip and have found all of the lectures useful this Christmas.
