Health Care Concerns: Let’s imagine there is a mega cyber/digital security trap awaiting developing nations! Can your President and African Presidents in particular who receive health care delivery services outside their countries become a victim of intelligent Microchip implant into their bodies as a way of high-jacking the control of governance of a nation? With AI, IoT and Robotics, noting is impossible! Simply defined, a human microchip implant is typically an integrated circuit device with identification and control capabilities.
The above may therefore be classified as the mega Cybersecurity concern – when the president is digitally and remotely high jacked.
The crisis situation and disaster recovery response certainly dwarfs what we know as cyber threat today! Can chip implant order a president to perform instructions he doesn’t want to perform?
When it comes to technologies, especially information and communications technology, health issues occupy a very sensitive high priority.
In this era of intensive research in IoT and related embedded intelligent systems, developing nations should be concerned on the state of development, competence, capacities and capabilities of their Health Care sector, facilities and delivery systems. Mind control is possible through human implant.
Thinking outside the box, if we agree that the digital workplace revolution is irreversible and leaves no avenue of escape for anyone – especially when it is now almost a done deal that AI and Robots will replace qualified teachers in a decade or so; then, it therefore becomes easy to reason that a combination of concealed microchip implant, AI and Robots can covertly takeover the President’s mind and governance of the unconscious and unprepared nation. Today, regime change is by force or arms. Tomorrow is may be via chip implant!
Chip Technology and health issues have come a long way in the scientific research Domain. Well documented studies reveal that the first experiments with Radio-frequency identification (RFID) implant was carried out in 1998 by the British scientist Kevin Warwick.
This intelligent Chip implant was used to open doors, switch on lights, and cause verbal output within a building. RFID uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects.
Without doubt, RFID has significant wide range uses to our lives and world. From digital library, health records management, aviation system tracking, supermarket product identification, credit cards and many more.
Also, according to Wiki, “on 16 March 2009 British scientist Mark Gasson had an advanced glass capsule RFID device surgically implanted into his left hand. In April 2010 Gasson’s team demonstrated how a computer virus could wirelessly infect his implant and then be transmitted on to other systems.
Gasson reasoned that with implanted technology the separation between man and machine can become theoretical because the technology can be perceived by the human as being a part of their body.
Because of this development in our understanding of what constitutes our body and its boundaries he became credited as being the first human infected by a computer virus”.
Indeed, the national risk of the future of digital workplace takeover by external forces is not limited to the teaching, greater part of engineering, legal, aviation, agricultural and other critical Professions but to those of Human resources management, physical security, policy makers, leadership, etc.
Engaging the emerging monumental challenges dictates that unless we retool the education and entire national workforce, massively invest in the Software engineering, enthrone e-Government and knowledge workforce capacity building, we may be further surprised with a sudden eclipse of our efforts to deliver sustainable development.
Education, Health, digital and Environmental infrastructure remains non-negotiable strategic imperatives.
