Was the performance of IBM's Deep Blue against Gary Kasparov an example of supersonic calculation or the first step toward artificial intelligence? Does the acclaimed performance artist Stelarc, striving to become a cyborg-like hybrid, represent the possibility of a strange new race? This startling program tracks advances in robotics at Stanford University and Honda Motors, biotechnology as applied to synthetic skin and organs, workplace computerization, surveillance using Xerox's "tab dogs," and nanotechnology, including atomic-scale machinery and designer genes, and speculates on their ultimate impact on society.
