Where should one draw the line between machine and human? “Cyborg” medical devices to save human lives, boost human health, or provide new ways for people to interact with their world have been used since ancient times. However, the pace of development of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the present day means that it’s key to look at how people interact with technology now.

The Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology (ICIT), a cybersecurity consortium, has put out a paper entitled “Hacking Cyborgs: By 2025, Non-Augmented Humans Will Be Obsolete. But There’s Bad News...

It focuses on contemporary devices such as implanted near-field communication (NFC) tags and neural meshes, and investigates possible attack vectors and protection strategies for the cyborg present.

The paper, written by ICIT Co-Founder & Sr. Fellow James Scott, is available here.
