Robot-human evolution. Illustration of a sequence showing the evolution of humans and robots. At upper left a robot and a human face each other. The following stages show the development and evolution of cyborgs, bionic beings, and online entities, all forms of cybernetic and robotic life and artificial intelligence. One of the possible end points of such evolution is the uploading of minds and intelligences into a virtual or artificial construct, represented by the avatar at far right. Some of these concepts are part of the movement known as transhumanism.
