As you can probably tell, I love listening to Isaac Arthur. In his latest post he covers cyborgs, explaining what they are and especially since the annoucement of Elon's Neuralink, what that will mean when our brains can connect to a computer directly.

We examine the concepts of cyborgs, clarify what they are and how they differ from bionics, androids, and similar concepts. We also discuss some of the lesser known options for augmentation and explore the notion of man-machine integration.
