http://www.scn.org/~mentifex/ Project Mindmaker deals with robots
and cyborgs based upon our thus far best available Theory of Mind:

Since olfaction, or the sense of smell, is merely one more memory
channel laid down in parallel on the associative mindgrid of both
humans and robots, we track artificial nose Web sites for cyborgs
