Representations of Artificial Intelligence in Cinema: Hybrid Agents

The definition of Cyborg is not widely agreed. Here, I am using it to refer to normal biological entities (e.g. people) that have been enhanced in some manner, e.g. by prosthetic limbs, muscles, sensors, databases, etc, with their reasoning mechanism largely human-like, rather than artificial. Thus, they do not exhibit Artificial Intelligence.
