Bionics is a term for bio-inspired information technology, typically including three systems that bio-morphic (eg neuromorphic) and bio-inspired electronic/optical devices, autonomous artificial sensor-processor-activator prostheses and various devices built into the human body and living-artificial interactive symbioses, e.g. brain-controlled devices or robots.
