    Hello,

    I'm doing a survey on cybernetics for my thesis for school.
    I would be very pleased if you would fill in my survey, and I thank you in advance for doing so. It's not long, it should barely take two minutes!
    here's the link:

    What exactly is cybernetics?

    Well, the part i'm studying for my thesis, is about humans using technology to improve themselves, or to get certain capabilities back (for example an ear implant connected to the brain to be able to hear again). The survey is more about possible future outcomes, like a society where almost everyone has chosen to become a cyborg. Cybernetics is broader than the part i'm concentrating on though.
    I hope you get an idea of cybernetics with this!
    Thank you for your interest

    Interesting. That would mean cybernetics requires knowledge on human biology and technology.

    I've taken your survey.

    you are right indeed, as many specialist have to come together to work on new projects, like neurologists and software developpers for example.

    thank you for completing it

    You're welcome, since it is a short one i don't mind taking it. One thing about creating surveys is that in order to attract a larger sample, it is good to make it short.

    In that case Cybernetics is not a discipline that could be mastered by one person like medicine, engineering etc. So what does a person choose if he/she would like a career in Cybernetics?

    well, actually there is something like a cyberneticist, but I think it's comparable to an engineer. The engineer or cyberneticist plans the whole thing, he's not the one making the product, if you know what i mean.
    But cybernetics is also more than only the subject I'm delaing with, so you have things like biocybernetics, engineering cybernetics and so on.
