En annan upplaga av oss: Cyborgens implementation i samhället
Blekinge Institute of Technology.
2015 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [sv]

Cyborgen, en samansättning av orden cybernetik och organism, en gestalt vars innebörd bör ses som mer än en fiktiv gestaltning. Cyborgen är idag enligt forskare och filosofer en samhällelig verklighet och dess inverkan på individen är mycket större än vi tror. Det här kandidatarbetet undersöker vad som definierar en cyborg, med stöd ifrån forskning och filosofin summeras tankar och synsätt för att få en mer definitiv bild av begreppet. Arbetet studerar även hur den sociala kontexten kan komma att förvrängas när tekniken letar sig in i den köttsliga kroppen. De resultat och insikter arbetet resulterat i sammanfattas och står som grund för en gestaltning vars mål har varit att kategorisera öppen data från individer med inbyggda Rfid-chip, en diskussion av begreppet och dess innebörd sammanfattas i en resultatdel för att få en bred bild av cyborgen som helhet. Metoder såsom workshop och litteraturstudier har bidragit till att arbetet fått en bredare bild av människans sätt att leva tillsammans med tekniken.

The work also studies how the social context may be distorted when the technology finds its way into the physical body. The results and insights this work resulted in is summarized and stands as the basis for a design whose goal has been to categorize open data from individuals with built-in RFID chip, a discussion of the concept and its meaning is summarized in the results section to get a broad picture of the whole cyborg. Methods such as workshops and literature studies have helped to get a broader picture of the human way of living together with technology.
