I'm not even going to try and define the term cybernetics, but mainly because cybernetics can't even define cybernetics. LOL! Seriously, there are currently 13+ definitions for that term on Wikipedia, for example.
I don't know if this is true or not, but I once had a person tell me that current science predicts this technology will emerge around 2065. He went on to mention about how we are just a bunch of chemicals and electrical impulses (haven't we all heard that before) that could easily be replicated into a computer. Ha-ha! Personally, I really doubt if they will ever create a sentient robot that replicates an emotional, semi-rational human being with common sense and imagination.
Brain Emulation / Mind Uploading is a hypothetical process that states the mind transfer will involve copying a conscious mind to a non-biological system or computational device. Some people really have a lot of faith in this, but do you think it is possible? I mean, Microsoft can't even make their computer devices glitch free, so how in the hell are the scientists going to create a cyborg, sentient robot, etc., via cybernetics that absolutely mimics a human being without any errors? Ha-ha!
