In E. Paul Zehr's speculative nonfiction book Inventing Iron Man: The Possibility of a Human Machine, the real-life implications of linking humans to robotic technologies in the form of brain machine interface are explored. Daniel H. Wilson's novel Robopocalypse is set in a future where human biology and technology have become seamlessly integrated. Society has become increasingly reliant on automation and robotics and comes face to face with its own extinction when a sentient artificial intelligence is unleashed on the world. This panel contains a discussion on robotics and technological fusion now and in the future using concepts in Iron Man comics, neuroscience, biomedical engineering, robotics, and the dystopian novel Robopocalypse.
