Limits on use of facial recognition system

The ACT government has ruled out the possibility of Access Canberra using the federal government's proposed facial recognition technology to pursue unpaid fines.

Under a Council Of Australian Government agreement, Access Canberra - the territory's one-stop shop for government utilities, services and support - would be able to use the National Driver Licence Facial Recognition Solution or the "Capability".

According to the agreement, the ACT will pay the Commonwealth $20,000 a year to operate and maintain the system, and any costs related to integrating the ACT's database with the Capability would be the territory's responsibility.

ACT Policing would also have access to the technology.

The ACT government confirmed it had "no intention" of using the technology more broadly.

"The capacity for government agencies to use the Capability is still being finalised," a government spokesperson said. "The government has no plan to broaden Access Canberra's use of the system."

The government has ruled out using the system to verify people's identities, pursue parking infringements or any other responsibilities that fall to the services agency.

ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr was the sole state or territory leader to raise privacy concerns over the system, which the government stressed would be necessary for counter-terrorism.

The ACT government said it would only provide one-for-one matches, where the system returns a single identical match to a searched face, rather than multiple possible matches from searches in the One Person One Licence System (OPOLS).

Surveillance expert Professor Katina Michael from the University of Wollongong said one-to-one matches would help prevent innocent Canberrans being inadvertently targeted in an investigation. A search that returned multiple possible matches, she said, could create false positives for investigators.

"You don't want fuzzy matches," Professor Michael said.

The agreement did not permanently rule out the ACT's database being used in OPOLS searches. It stated there would not be any participation in the OPOLS "at this stage".

Mr Barr said he had requested restrictions on the use of the Capability so as to meet the ACT's Human Rights Act.

Women Cops Should Join Hands to Fight Crime’

Hyderabad: The international conference, a first of its kind, on ‘Women in Law Enforcement’, jointly organised by the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy(SVPNPA) and the Charles Sturt University (CSU), Australia started here on Tuesday with Aruna Bahuguna, director, SVPNPA, urging all women officers to build on breakthroughs achieved by women pioneers. In her inaugural address, she said that “as today’s world has shrunk into a global village and crime and terrorism sweep across continents, it is but logical that women law enforcers join hands to fight crime- be it terrorism, technology or radicalization.” Introducing the conference, Professor Tracey Green of CSU, Australia, emphasized that this was a unique opportunity for networking at every level from global, regional to national scale on many key aspects of policing from organized crime, border security, terrorism and radicalization and counter radicalisation. Chris Elstoft, Deputy High Commissioner, Australian High Commission, touched upon the long-standing relationship between Australia and India.

“We have been collaborating and working on a range of transnational issues related to money laundering and counter terrorism to name a few and this conference is yet another milestone that we have achieved coalescing the issue of women policing and gender equality.” Elaborating further, Professor Green stated that “terrorism worldwide demonstrates the need to strengthen global response in the critical areas of investigation. Technology: A Double-edged Sword Speaking on the benefits and harms of National Security Technology, Associate Professor Katina Michael, who has been researching on security technology for over 16 years, of University of Wollongong in Australia said technology’s pervasiveness can be hideous. Speaking about micro-chipping people embracing the technology into one’s body, she touched upon India’s Aadhaar-unique identity cards. According to her, keeping upto the pace of change in technology one forgets the basic needs. “What is the need for collecting biometrics of 1.2 billion people, without a legislation, when the country already has a national registry. Wait till a hacker takes your identity and how you would not be able to reclaim your identity,” she warned of a concept called ‘Identity theft’.

Women as agents of de-radicalisation Gulmina Bilal Ahmad,an independent researcher from Pakistan, speaking about the radicalisation related tendencies in her country, pointed out how women police force could be used in counter-radicalising terrorist activities. According to her, evidences suggest that certain militant organisations use specific messages targeting women groups, youth and children oriented groups. She said a certain militant group in SWAT were recruiting militants through a radio station talking about social justice that resonated with majority population. She reiterated that women police personnel who form less than one per cent of Pakistan police force and remain largely un-utilised should be used as de-radicalisation agents by engaging youngsters in dialogue. Higher ranks & not Numbers matter While pointing out that the representation of female police officers in International Police Force was higher and has reached an all-high of 44 per cent in Interpol, Dr Saskia Hufnagel of Queen Mary University London, said “It is not enough to improve the numbers of women in police force, what we need to do is to ensure that women make it to the higher ranks.”

The Apple Watch and Wearable Downsides

We are witnessing an explosion of wearable devices. People are now seen wearing a watch, a FITBIT and carrying their mobile phone. What next? Do away with all these externals and just go for an implantable that can do all of this for the price of one and is invisible? Not only are these wearables a status symbol but people truly believe they can gain many benefits from reminders to do with getting up and walking when they've been sitting all day behind a computer at work. No one can discount the potential benefits but there are also downsides. What if we lived in a future where our health insurance providers could dictate our premium based on the number of steps we took each day? What if our future employer could make a decision on whether we'd be a good employee based on our data, sold on from App companies to third parties? Don't think we will ever live in such a future? Think again-- it's already here! We just seem to be too busy to realise because we're looking for the latest gadget that will make us more hip and ultimately chew up more of our scarce time. We're too busy interacting and messaging too notice what is going on right before our very eyes. Jack and Candice explore the issues at hand in this interview.

Teensafe spy app forces parents to choose between trust and online safety spy app forces parents to choose between trust and online safety

The internet can be a dangerous place for kids but respect and trust are vital to healthy family relationships.

To spy or not to spy on our children, that is the question posed by new monitoring app Teensafe.

The $14.95 a month snoop service, which lets a parent monitor their children's online activity, was developed in 2011 by a group of Californian parents who were concerned that the number of children using smartphones in the US had grown from 10 to 80 per cent in just five years.

"Devices are becoming more prevalent in kids' lives – often they're with them the whole time," says Teensafe chief executive Rawdon Messenger. "A 10 year old with a phone, in some ways they're not ready for it."

With more than a million signups in three years, Teensafe has doubled its number of subscribers in the past six months. "The growth is coming from parents who are saying, 'I really need to check out what's going on'," says Messenger, who has a seven year old daughter.

"Privacy and respecting boundaries is very important," he says, "but in certain cases safety and protection trumps privacy, especially when it comes to sexting, bullying and depression."

Teensafe users can log into an account and see a child's messages, including deleted texts, and view their social media feeds, but the service doesn't allow you to listen to phone conversations.

"We also won't store or download any of the child's images from the device," Messenger says.

"That's a feature that could make our service more attractive, but we don't feel that's necessary."

Not everyone agrees with the Teensafe approach. Dr Joe Tucci, head of the Australian Childhood Foundation, believes there are inherent problems with such monitoring apps.

"I think it undermines the trust that parents and kids need to have in order to have a positive relationship," Tucci says. "As kids get older, parents need to be like a lighthouse for their children. When things are going rough, parents are the people you need to be able to go to, and talk to. That trust is critical as a foundation for that open, honest communication. These sorts of apps undermine that. They basically say we can't trust our young people ... we have
to intrude into their world."

Primary school teacher Nikki Howard says she would not use Teensafe to see what her 12 year old daughter Abby was doing on Instagram. She feels their relationship is open enough, and not worth jeopardising with a spy app.

"I can see why people would use it, but it's not for us," Howard says. "You don't want to be too involved in their lives and too controlling. You wonder if people who are doing it let their kids do more because they know exactly where they are. But what would stop a child from leaving their phone somewhere and nicking off and doing something else?"

In her first year of high school, Abby says she wouldn't be happy for her parents to be able to read all of her text messages and social media posts.

"They'd be invading my privacy. I don't go reading mum's messages so why does she have to read mine? I don't think it's necessary because I tell mum everything anyway."

One Melbourne family with a techobsessed 11 year old discovered she had downloaded free messaging app Kikwithout their permission and was corresponding with a "boy from California".

Her mother worries about perverts and paedophiles using these platforms as stalking grounds.

"It would enter my mind to use [Teensafe] but I'd have to really think about it. I do think it's important to tell your child. My daughter is already hiding things from me, and sneaking into her room with the phone. If I want the open conversation, I'm going to play the honesty card first."

The 39 year old mother of two tween girls admits this is new ground for parents of digital natives and is difficult to negotiate, given the pace of emerging technologies.

"We're new to this. We weren't part of this culture when we were kids. She's connecting with somebody she doesn't know, she's using her own name and her own picture, and these are all the 'nono's that they've learnt in cyber safety at school but they're not making the connection."

Messenger says Teensafe advises its users to divulge the use of the app, rather than using it covertly, but admits in some cases going behind your child's back may be the only way to get to the truth.

"If you're concerned about your child and you have no other way of finding out what's going on, as a parent it's a no brainer. People have found out their children are dealing drugs, or are truant from school, and if that's going on what's more important to you – growing trust with your child or checking that everything is OK?"

Tucci warns getting access to a child's digital life can open up a Pandora's box of dilemmas. "It can be insidious. It's tempting for parents to use it not only for safety but potentially for other reasons, and inadvertently you get access to information about friends that you shouldn't have. And that's going to be disastrous."

The child psychologist suggests ongoing communication with a child is the best way to navigate the turbulent teenage years. "If you're worried about your child, the best thing you can do is talk to them. But that shouldn't be the only time that you're trying to talk to them. This kind of app gives the impression that you don't need to be there."

Katina Michael, associate professor of the School of Information Systems and Technology at the University of Wollongong, worries that spy apps encourage disengagement. "My fear is that technology becomes a replacement for good parenting or a replacement for a teen thinking freely about what they should or shouldn't do."

She says research suggests this type of surveillance could be dangerous in the wrong hands. "Police have already cautioned against the use of spy apps because they are well aware of how more covert software is being used to track someone's whereabouts. In the most heinous crimes, third parties have gained access to handsets, downloaded spy apps, and then recovered coordinates and location information and committed terrible things," she says.

Messenger acknowledges the safety debate is heated, but that all Teensafe does is allow parents to do what they're already doing in a more comprehensive way.

"You can spy on your child's email, have the passwords to their social media, grab their phone and go through it – there are lots of different ways of doing this, we just facilitate it and make it easier to do remotely."

The Australian Federal Police offers online cyber safety advice.

The new way to pay with Smartwatches

Information systems and technology associate professor Katina Michael is worried about paying with wearables and other emerging contactless devices.

The University of Wollongong academic voiced her concerns at FST Media’s recent Future of Security in Financial Services Summit.

Michael said “lax security” of some contactless payment methods, for example, made it easier for juveniles to swipe $100 “from a parent’s card without their knowledge.”

Even when a second factor for authentication was introduced, it did not mask the underlying weakness of these newer platforms, she said.

“What are we doing introducing insecure technologies like NFC [near field communications] and ‘touch and go’ [payments] through different types of wearables and card tokens and then trying to back them up with some kind of second tier authentication like biometrics?” she said.

Más cerca los chips implantados en humanos

Disclaimer: The author of this article did not contact me for a statement.

The article is all over the place. I include it here, as a representative article alone, of a whole genre of articles that deals with Obamacare, identity technologies over time, and much more.


In Spanish:

Más cerca los chips implantados en humanos

El nuevo DNI español con chip permite incorporar infinidad de datos personales, incluyendo radiografías, informes médicos y las veces que se sale o entra del territorio nacional.

”Un chip es un circuito integrado que puede ser utilizado en el tejido subcutáneo con diversos fines que van, desde el control policial o sanitario, hasta el ajuste de terapias para determinados pacientes. La tecnología se va abriendo camino en el campo de la biointegración tecnológica de elementos extraños, electrónicos u ópticos, que guardan u ofrecen información sobre nosotros. Pero, ¿dónde están las barreras legales o éticas? Los microchips son aproximadamente del tamaño de un grano de arroz y se basan en una tecnología pasiva, NWO, una gran revolución tecnológica que podrá suponer también muchos adelantos en el campo de la medicina, en el desarrollo del consumo pero sobre todo un control sobre los ciudadanos. En este reportaje de Lourdes S. Payán encontraremos todas las respuestas a tan apasionante tema de actualidad.


Los chips subcutáneos son del tamaño de un grano de arroz. Por otra parte, la empresa MC10 está trabajando en una amplia gama de "tatuajes inteligentes" que serán capaces de hacer cosas sorprendentes y que quieren integrar a smartphones.

ESTADOS UNIDOS-Ley sanitaria

Obama Aprueba una nueva ley HR 3590 y también la 4872 la cual entre otras cosas exige que todos los ciudadanos de los EE.UU tengan el RIFD implantado. RFID (siglas de Radio Frequency IDentification, en español identificación por radiofrecuencia) es un sistema de almacenamiento y recuperación de datos remoto que usa dispositivos denominados etiquetas, tarjetas, transpondedores o tags RFID. El propósito fundamental de la tecnología RFID es transmitir la identidad de un objeto (similar a un número de serie único) mediante ondas de radio. Las tecnologías RFID se agrupan dentro de las denominadas Auto ID (automatic identification, o identificación automática).

Esta medida ya se lleva poniendo en marcha desde hace algunos años en Estados Unidos y en otros países en secreto; a manera de experimento también ha sido implantado voluntariamente en todo el mundo para localizar a la extraviada mascota y se sigue usando aún después del descontento de muchos dueños, que han reportado cáncer en sus mascotas tras la implantación del chip. Algunos ciudadanos lo hacen voluntariamente y en algunos colegios de Sudamérica ya se lleva un chip implantado en el uniforme de los estudiantes para tener un mayor control de los mismos.

La nueva ley apoyada por Obama y el Congreso de tal país, indica entre otras obligaciones, que el ciudadano estadounidense use un chip como medida de precaución, según marca el gobierno, el que incluirá toda la información de la persona, es un banco de datos en el cual se podrá saber todo acerca de la persona como fecha de nacimiento, tipo de sangre, estado civil, domicilio, enfermedades que padece y por supuesto las cuentas de banco entre mucha más información, incluso se ha mencionado que el chip ha sido preparado de forma muy minuciosa y probado mucho antes en animales, incluso hay información sobre un experimento que se realizó con éxito en un toro salvaje el cual recibió mediante una inyección un prototipo del chip, el toro que mostraba gran salvajismo, quedo pasivo al recibir impulsos eléctricos a través de un control remoto.

Precisamente esta es la baza que se está jugando a la hora de implantar toda esta tecnología de control: la fácil aceptación por parte de las generaciones más jóvenes.

Un buen ejemplo de ello lo estamos viendo en los propios parques de atracciones norteamericanos, donde se están implementando todo tipo de mecanismos de control, como por ejemplo los escáneres biométricos mediante huella dactilar.

“Se proyecta que el FBI habrá compilado 52 millones de imágenes faciales para el año 2015″. Dicho en otras palabras: en pocos años, el FBI será capaz de identificar y monitorear a cualquier persona que camine por la calle solo grabándola con alguna de los miles de cámaras que ya copan las ciudades norteamericanas, según el Programa "Next Generation Identification"


Para ser atendido en un hospital deberás llevar el chip implantado con el que se te identificará y verán tu seguro social y tu historial médico. (Lo más importante tu posicionamiento) y así a todo el pueblo norteamericano (en un comienzo, para luego promover esto mundialmente),de esta forma, Estados Unidos será la primera nación del planeta que requerirá que todos sus ciudadanos tengan el implante subcutáneo de un microchip de identificación por radiofrecuencia (RFID).

Requisitos de Implantación: Sec. 2521, Pág. 1000 – El gobierno establecerá un Registro Nacional de Dispositivos Médicos

¿Qué significa un Registro Nacional de Dispositivos Médicos? Registro Nacional de Dispositivos Médicos en H.R. 3200 [Cobertura de Salud], páginas 1001-1008:(g)(1) El Ministerio establecerá un registro nacional de dispositivos médicos (en esta subsección se lo menciona como “registro”) para facilitar el análisis de los datos resultantes y la seguridad de cada dispositivo que –“(A) sea o haya sido usado en un paciente; “(B) y sea –“(i) un dispositivo de clase III; o “(ii) un dispositivo de clase II que sea implantable, de soporte o sustento de vida.”

Luego en la página 1004 describe lo que significa el término “datos” usado en el párrafo 1, sección B:

‘‘(B) En este párrafo, el término “datos” se refiere a la información referente al dispositivo descrito en el párrafo 1, incluyendo datos de órdenes médicas, datos de consultas de los pacientes, archivos de análisis estandarizados que permitan la estadística y análisis de datos procedentes de diferentes entornos de datos, registros electrónicos de salud, y cualquier otra información considerada apropiada por el Ministerio”

¿Qué es exactamente un dispositivo de clase II implantable? Aprobado por la FDA, un dispositivo implantable de clase II es un “sistema transpondedor de radio frecuencia implantable para la identificación del paciente y la información de su salud”. El objetivo del dispositivo de clase II es recoger datos en los pacientes médicos, tales como “datos de las órdenes médicas, los datos de la consulta de los pacientes, los archivos de análisis estandarizados que permitan la estadística y análisis de los datos procedentes de diferentes entornos de datos, registros de salud electrónicos, y cualquier otra información que considerada apropiada por el Ministerio.

Esta nueva ley – al ser implementada – proveerá el marco para hacer de los Estados Unidos la primera nación en el mundo en requerir que cada uno de sus ciudadanos tengan implantados en ellos un microchip de identificación por radiofrecuencia (RFID) con el propósito de controlar quién es la persona y permitir el seguro de salud en su país. No lo cree? 

Cobertura de Salud H.R. 3200 (Healthcare Bill H.R.) 3200:

1001-1008 Sección “Registro Nacional de Dispositivos Médicos”.

Página 1006 “a ser implementada en los 36 meses de vigencia”.

Página 503 “… vigilancia del dispositivo médico” ¿Por qué el gobierno usaría la palabra “vigilancia” al referirse a ciudadanos? La definición de “vigilancia” es el monitoreo del comportamiento, actividades, u otras informaciones cambiantes, comúnmente de personas y siempre de manera secreta. En teoría, la intención de agilizar la asistencia de salud y de eliminar el fraude a través de “chips de cobertura de la salud” parece correcto. Pero, que la única superpotencia del mundo (América, por ahora) obligue al uso (página 1006) de un dispositivo implantable es terrorífico. 

¿Microchips incluidos en la ley de Cobertura Médica?

El ex Ministro de Salud y Servicios Humanos (HHS), Tommy Thompson, quien sirvió en el primer mandato del gobierno de Bush, se unió a la junta de directores de Applied Digital. Applied Digital como todos saben es el propietario de VeriChip.

La empresa MC10 está trabajando en una amplia gama de "tatuajes inteligentes" que serán capaces de hacer cosas realmente salvajes, "El Investigador de Materiales John Rogers está realizando un trabajo increíble con la electrónica flexible que se pega a la piel como un tatuaje temporal. La llamada electrónica epidural puede hacer cualquier cosa, desde el seguimiento de tus constantes vitales hasta alertarte cuando empiezas a quemarte por el sol.

Rogers y su empresa MC10 están tratando de encontrar vías de comunicación entre estos dispositivos electrónicos con otros dispositivos inteligentes, como smartphones, para que puedan comenzar a crear aplicaciones". Y Motorola, de hecho, ya dispone de una patente para un tatuaje que recibirá órdenes procedentes de palabras no vocalizadas en tu garganta…
"El tatuaje que tienen en mente estará estampado sobre las cuerdas vocales para interceptar los comandos de voz sutil, o incluso los susurros totalmente internos que no hacen vibrar las cuerdas vocales cuando no reciben aprobación cerebral completa. Ellos lo llaman "computación portátil" y lo que estamos viendo sólo el grano de arena en la playa.


Un grupo de científicos ha creado un chip "similar al cerebro" que interpreta datos complejos, la silueta de un cerebro humano sobre un circuito de un ordenador. (GTRES). Se trata de un superordenador neurosináptico del tamaño de un sello pero que funciona con la energía equivalente a la de una batería de un audífono. El anuncio, publicado en 'Science', sienta las bases de la computación basada en el cerebro, y podría transformar la ciencia, la tecnología y los negocios. "Ahora estamos más cerca de crear un ordenador similar a nuestro cerebro", precisa el profesor Rajit Manohar, de Cornell Tech. Los científicos de IBM han creado algo que no existía hasta la fecha: un chip de segunda generación que se trata de un superordenador neurosináptico del tamaño de un sello postal pero que funciona únicamente con la energía equivalente a la de una batería de un audífono.

El anuncio, recién publicado en la revista Science en colaboración con Cornell Tech, sienta las bases de la computación basada en el cerebro, y podría transformar la ciencia, la tecnología, los negocios, las administraciones y la sociedad, con aplicaciones en el campo de la visión, audición y multisensoriales, según una nota de IBM. Se trata del primer chip de computación neurosináptica y alcanza la escala de un millón de neuronas programables y 256 millones de sinapsis programables. IMB recuerda que existe una enorme disparidad entre la capacidad cognitiva del cerebro humano y su bajísimo consumo de energía, en comparación con los ordenadores actuales. Para reducir esa brecha, los científicos han creado "una arquitectura de computación completamente nueva, escalable y eficiente, inspirada en la neurociencia y que abre un nuevo camino respecto a la arquitectura von Neumann utilizada casi universalmente desde 1946". "Es un supercomputador del tamaño de un sello, del peso de una pluma y que consume lo mismo que un audífono. Es una innovación genuinamente radical", indicó en Science el científico jefe del equipo de IBM que ha desarrollado el producto, Dharmendra Modha.

Según sus desarrolladores, otra gran ventaja del nuevo microchip es que consume menos energía que los diseños tradicionales, lo que lo hace mucho más eficiente. "Nos hemos basado en dos aspectos de la neurociencia: la neuroanatomía para la estructura y la neurofisiología para los sistemas", explicó Modha. Cómo trabaja este chip de segunda generación es la culminación de casi una década de investigación y desarrollo. Este chip de segunda generación, que podría ser la puerta hacia la era de las grandes redes neuronales, es la culminación de casi una década de investigación y desarrollo, e incluye un prototipo inicial de un chip con un solo núcleo y un ecosistema de software con un nuevo lenguaje de programación y un simulador de chip. Con 5.400 millones de transistores, este chip totalmente operativo, y "el primero en producción a escala, es actualmente uno de los mayores chips CMOS jamás construido", y tiene un consumo minúsculo de 70 milivatios (mW) en ejecución a tiempo real biológico, es decir, varios órdenes de magnitud de gasto de energía inferiores a los de un moderno microprocesador. El nuevo chip tiene una red bidimensional de 4.096 núcleos neurosinápticos digitales distribuidos, donde cada uno de ellos integra memoria, computación y comunicación.

La Agencia de Proyectos de Investigación Avanzada de Defensa (Darpa) financia el proyecto desde 2008 con casi 55 millones de dólares durante la fase 0,1, 2 y 3 del programa Synapse (Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics); entre sus colaboradores actuales están Cornell Tech e IniLabs. El chip incorpora tecnología de fabricación de 28 nanómetros, de memoria en chip compacta y transistores de baja corriente de fuga. "Es un logro sorprendente utilizar el proceso tradicional del ámbito de los dispositivos móviles de bajo consumo para conseguir un chip que emule al cerebro humano, y sea capaz de procesar grandes cantidades de información sensorial con poco consumo", según Shawn Han, vicepresidente de Foundry Marketing, Samsung Electronics. "Ahora estamos ahora más cerca de crear un ordenador similar a nuestro cerebro", precisa el profesor Rajit Manohar, de Cornell Tech.


Por ejemplo, la BBC publicó un artículo titulado "¿Por qué deseo que me implanten un Microchip? - Why I Want A Microchip Implant" en el que explican que estos implantes podrían resolver toda una serie de problemas sociales. El robo de identidad y fraude con tarjetas de crédito estarían casi eliminados, muchas otras formas de delincuencia se reducirían significativamente, los niños nunca desaparecerían y no tendríamos que recordar una tan amplia gama de contraseñas y números PIN como hacemos ahora. EL Dr. Mark Gasson, experto en cibernética de la Universidad de Reading, en el Reino Unido, se convirtió en el primer ser humano en ser infectado por un virus informático, después de que en 2009 se implantara a sí mismo un microchip para controlar los dispositivos electrónicos en su oficina.

El virus se replicó en las tarjetas identificativas del personal con acceso a su edificio e infectó la base de datos de la universidad. No obstante, Gasson de la Reading University y otros científicos dicen que un nuevo mundo con la población masivamente computarizada es inminente e inevitable.

Creo que los implantes de chips en humanos recorrerán un camino similar. Será tal la desventaja de no llevar el implante que esencialmente no será algo opcional". El año pasado, la línea entre el hombre y la máquina se hizo aún más borrosa, cuando la Universidad de Stanford anunció que sus científicos habían creado el primer transistor puramente biológico creado completamente a partir de material genético.


El fiscal general de México y altos funcionarios de su personal han recibido implantes de VeriChip que les da acceso a áreas seguras en su cuartel general y los siguientes de la lista en ser chipeados, según se informa, serán los militares y la policía del país.

El distribuidor de VeriChip, Solusat, también ha anunciado un acuerdo con la Fundación Nacional para la Investigación de Niños Secuestrados y Perdidos de México, para promover la implantación del microchip en los niños del país.

Ahora la empresa VeriChip ha cambiado su nombre, tras un aluvión de publicidad negativa y se ha convertido en un promotor de lo que llaman "sistemas de detección biológica", llamado PositiveID.

Otras compañías también están comercializando los implantes de microchips y sus investigadores están trabajando para integrarlos con tecnología GPS. Se pronostica que cuando lo consigan, los productos ganaran un gran mercado internacional.


En España todos tenemos las huellas dactilares registradas en nuestro DNI desde hace años, algo que para los ciudadanos de otros países representaría una intrusión inaceptable en su intimidad y sin embargo nos parece la cosa más normal del mundo.

Si a estas alturas alguien cree que estos sistemas de control no se extenderán a Europa y en una década al resto de países del mundo es que tiene un grave problema con su ingenuidad, solo hay que visitar otras ciudades del mundo. En todas ellas encontrarán computadoras, Internet, smartphones, tablets, Mcdonald’s, Coca-Cola, VISA y Mastercard, Starbucks, Zara, Ikea, Nike-.


Testigo del control biométrico: “Algunas de las soluciones biométricas están ayudando a resolver problemas de suministro de vacunas en África. Hoy en día, un registro de vacunación biométrica ayuda a garantizar que millones de niños de corta edad reciban la vacuna que necesitan para salvar sus vidas. Y al saber quién se ha vacunado, estos preciosos medicamentos que salvan vidas no se desperdician por un exceso de vacunación en unos y falta de vacunación en otros”.


Kevin Warwick, profesor de cibernética en la Universidad de Reading, describió el descubrimiento como el componente final necesario para que una computadora biológica pueda operar dentro de las células vivas y reprograme los sistemas vivos. El mismo lleva incorporado un dispositivo electrónico en su cuerpo que se conecta con el sistema nervioso y su esposa lleva implantado en el brazo otro dispositivo más simple.

El empresario de Internet y activista del software libre Jonathan Oxer, se implantó a sí mismo un microchip en el año 2004, después de obtener el mismo kit que usan los veterinarios con las mascotas. Se le describe como "un ciborg en construcción . 


Son muchos, los que se oponen a lo que esconde o enmascaran estos adelantos, ir en contra de la madre naturaleza nunca salió rentable para el ser humano ,según Katina Michael " profesora asociada de la Universidad de Wollongong, los microchips RFID son esencialmente un identificador único incrustado en tu cuerpo, y como sabemos, los números pueden ser robados y los datos pueden ser hackeados. Incorporar un problema informático externo en el cuerpo humano está lleno de peligros.


Quedan claros los subterfugios que se van a utilizar para justificar el avance de estas tecnologías de control masivo: los niños enfermos, la seguridad, la lucha contra la delincuencia, los pobres ancianitos incapacitados o los gatitos perdidos.

Y con ello, de paso, conseguirán que cualquiera que se niegue a aceptarlas o que exponga sus peligros, quede de cara a la opinión pública como una persona paranoica, retrógrada y fanatizada, y es que lo que estamos viviendo parece propio de una película o serie de Hollywood

Hay muchos ciudadanos que se oponen al uso del chip, incluso algunos grupos religiosos hablan de profecías Bíblicas donde se citan tales sistemas, pero no solo los religiosos son los que se oponen sino también algunos estudiosos, psicólogos, sociólogos e intelectuales en general, que están investigando de manera objetiva algunos de sus usos y también sus consecuencias, se ha publicado en diversos medios cuales son algunos otros objetivos del chip en la próxima década ya que muchos no se han dado a conocer de manera abierta.

Continuará haciéndose despacio pero sin pausa como hasta ahora, para que los individuos lo vayan viendo como algo indispensable y lógico, pero pensar tan solo por un instante que incluso se podrán interpretar por medio de impulsos los pensamientos y las emociones de los ciudadanos, de tal manera que si se encuentra algo sospechoso en algún ciudadano, se pueda desactivar el chip en cualquier momento haciendo que el ciudadano prácticamente dejara de existir, por lo menos en la sociedad, será como una especie de marginado o lacra social que incluso no podrá siquiera comprar me parece terrorífico y descabellado. La información lleva servida muchos años, y está en la dosis necesaria para poder sacar nuestras propias conclusiones, y que nada pase desapercibido, ya en la historia del cine, han sido muchas películas las que nos daban señales, "El Quinto Elemento " por ejemplo, no nos dejó sin huella y no dactilar precisamente.

"A chip is an integrated circuit that can be used in subcutaneous tissue for various purposes ranging from police or health control to the adjustment of therapies for certain patients. Technology is making its way in the field of technological biointegration of strange elements, electronic or optical, that store or offer information about us. But where are the legal or ethical barriers? The microchips are about the size of a grain of rice and are based on a passive technology, NWO, a great technological revolution that can also mean many advances in the field of medicine, in the development of consumption but above all a control over the citizens. In this report by Lourdes S. Payán we will find all the answers to such an exciting topic.


The subcutaneous chips are the size of a grain of rice. On the other hand, the company MC10 is working on a wide range of "smart tattoos" that will be able to do amazing things and want to integrate smartphones.


Obama Approves a new law HR 3590 and also the 4872 which among other things requires that all US citizens have the RIFD implanted. RFID (abbreviation for Radio Frequency IDentification) is a remote data storage and retrieval system that uses devices called tags, cards, transponders or RFID tags. The fundamental purpose of RFID technology is to transmit the identity of an object (similar to a unique serial number) by radio waves. RFID technologies are grouped within the so-called Auto ID (automatic identification).

This measure has been underway for some years in the United States and in other countries in secret; As an experiment, it has also been voluntarily implanted around the world to locate the lost pet and is still used even after the discontent of many owners, who have reported cancer in their pets after the implantation of the chip. Some citizens do it voluntarily and in some schools in South America a chip is already implanted in the students' uniform to have a greater control over them. 

The new law supported by Obamaand the Congress of such country, indicates among other obligations, that the US citizen use a chip as a precautionary measure, according to the government, which will include all the information of the person, is a data bank in which you can know everything about the person as date of birth, blood type, marital status, address, illnesses suffered and of course the bank accounts among much more information, it was even mentioned that the chip has been prepared in a very thorough and proven much earlier in animals, there is even information about an experiment that was carried out successfully in a wild bull which received by injection a prototype of the chip, the bull that showed great savagery, was passive when receiving electrical impulses through a remote control .

Precisely this is the trick that is being played when implementing all this control technology: the easy acceptance by the younger generations. 

A good example of this is seen in the North American amusement parks, where all kinds of control mechanisms are being implemented, such as biometric fingerprint scanners. 

"It is projected that the FBI will have compiled 52 million facial images for 2015." In other words: in a few years, the FBI will be able to identify and monitor anyone who walks down the street only by recording it with one of the thousands of cameras that American cities already have, according to the "Next Generation Identification" Program


To be treated in a hospital, you must carry the implanted chip with which you will be identified and you will see your social security and medical history. (Most importantly, your positioning) and so to all the American people (at first, to promote this worldwide), in this way, the United States will be the first nation on the planet that will require all its citizens to have the subcutaneous implant of a radio frequency identification microchip (RFID). 

Implementation Requirements: Sec. 2521, p. 1000 - The government will establish a National Registry of Medical Devices

What does a National Registry of Medical Devices mean? National Registry of Medical Devices in HR 3200 [Health Coverage], pages 1001-1008: (g) (1) The Ministry will establish a national registry of medical devices (in this subsection it is referred to as a "registry") to facilitate the analysis of the resulting data and the safety of each device that - "(A) is or has been used on a patient; "(B) and be -" (i) a class III device; or "(ii) a class II device that is implantable, supportive or life-sustaining." 

Then on page 1004 describes what the term "data" used in paragraph 1, section B, means:

'' (B) In this paragraph, the term "data" refers to information regarding the device described in paragraph 1, including medical order data, patient consultation data, standardized analysis files that allow statistics and analysis of data from different data environments, electronic health records, and any other information deemed appropriate by the Ministry "

What exactly is an implantable class II device? Approved by the FDA, a class II implantable device is an "implantable radio frequency transponder system for patient identification and health information." The objective of the class II device is to collect data in medical patients, such as "data from medical orders, patient consultation data, standardized analysis files that allow statistics and analysis of data from different data environments, electronic health records, and any other information deemed appropriate by the Ministry.

This new law - when implemented - will provide the framework to make the United States the first nation in the world to require that each of its citizens have a radio frequency identification (RFID) microchip implanted in them in order to control who is the person and allow health insurance in your country. Do not believe it?

Health Coverage HR 3200 (Healthcare Bill HR) 3200: 

1001-1008 Section "National Registry of Medical Devices." 

Page 1006 "to be implemented in the 36 months of validity". 

Page 503 "... surveillance of the medical device" Why would the government use the word "surveillance" when referring to citizens? The definition of "vigilance" is the monitoring of behavior, activities, or other changing information, commonly of people and always secretly. In theory, the intention to streamline health care and eliminate fraud through "health coverage chips" seems correct. But, that the only superpower in the world (America, for now) requires the use (page 1006) of an implantable device is terrifying.

Microchips included in the Medical Coverage law? 

Former Minister of Health and Human Services (HHS), Tommy Thompson , who served in the first term of the Bush administration, joined the board of directors of Applied Digital. Applied Digital as you all know is the owner of VeriChip.

The MC10 company is working on a wide range of "smart tattoos" that will be able to do really wild things, "Material Researcher John Rogers is doing an amazing job with flexible electronics that stick to the skin like a tattoo The electronic epidural call can do anything from monitoring your vital signs to alerting you when you start to get burned by the sun.

Rogers and his company MC10 are trying to find ways of communicating between these electronic devices with other smart devices, such as smartphones, so they can start creating applications. "And Motorola, in fact, already has a patent for a tattoo that will receive orders coming from words not vocalized in your throat ... 
"The tattoo you have in mind will be stamped on the vocal cords to intercept the subtle voice commands, or even the totally internal whispers that do not vibrate the vocal cords when they do not receive full brain approval. They call it "portable computing" and what we're seeing is just the grain of sand on the beach. 


A group of scientists has created a chip "similar to the brain" that interprets complex data, the silhouette of a human brain on a circuit of a computer. (GTRES). It is a neurosynaptic supercomputer the size of a seal but works with the equivalent energy of a battery in a hearing aid. The announcement, published in 'Science', lays the foundations of brain-based computing, and could transform science, technology and business. "We are now closer to creating a computer similar to our brain," says Professor Rajit Manohar of Cornell Tech . IBMscientiststhey have created something that did not exist to date: a second-generation chip that is a neurosynaptic supercomputer the size of a postage stamp but works only with the energy equivalent of a battery in a hearing aid.

The ad, just published in the journal Science in collaboration with Cornell Tech, lays the foundations of brain-based computing, and could transform science, technology, business, government and society, with applications in the field of vision, hearing and multisensory, according to an IBM note. It is the first neurosynaptic computer chip and reaches the scale of one million programmable neurons and 256 million programmable synapses. IMB remembers that there is a huge disparity between the cognitive capacity of the human brain and its very low energy consumption, compared to current computers. To reduce that gap, scientists have created "a completely new, scalable and efficient computing architecture, inspired by neuroscience and that opens a new path with respect to the von Neumann architecture used almost universally since 1946. "" It is a supercomputer the size of a stamp, the weight of a pen and consumes the same as a hearing aid. It is a genuinely radical innovation, "said the chief scientist of the IBM team that developed the product, Dharmendra Modha, in Science.

According to its developers, another great advantage of the new microchip is that it consumes less energy than traditional designs, which makes it much more efficient. "We have relied on two aspects of neuroscience: neuroanatomy for structure and neurophysiology for systems," explained Modha.. How this second generation chip works is the culmination of almost a decade of research and development. This second-generation chip, which could be the gateway to the era of large neural networks, is the culmination of almost a decade of research and development, and includes an initial prototype of a single-core chip and a software ecosystem with a new programming language and a chip simulator. With 5,400 million transistors, this fully operational chip, and "the first in scale production, is currently one of the largest CMOS chips ever built", and has a miniscule consumption of 70 milliwatts (mW) in real time biological execution, that is, several orders of magnitude of energy expenditure lower than those of a modern microprocessor. The new chip has a two-dimensional network of 4.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) has financed the project since 2008 with almost 55 million dollars during phases 0,1, 2 and 3 of the Synapse program (Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics) ; among his current collaborators are Cornell Tech and IniLabs. The chip incorporates 28 nanometer manufacturing technology, compact chip memory and low leakage current transistors. "It's a surprising achievement to use the traditional process of low-power mobile devices to get a chip that emulates the human brain, and is capable of processing large amounts of sensory information with little consumption," said Shawn Han, vice president of Foundry. Marketing, Samsung Electronics. "Now we are closer to creating a computer similar to our brain," says Professor Rajit Manohar of Cornell Tech. 


For example, the BBC published an article entitled "Why do I want to implant a Microchip? - Why I Want A Microchip Implant" in which they explain that these implants could solve a whole series of social problems. Identity theft and credit card fraud would be almost eliminated, many other forms of crime would be significantly reduced, children would never disappear and we would not have to remember such a wide range of passwords and PINs as we do now. Dr. Mark Gasson, an expert in cybernetics at the University of Reading , in the United Kingdom, became the first human being to be infected by a computer virus, after in 2009 he implanted himself a microchip to control the electronic devices in your office.

The virus was replicated on identification cards of staff with access to their building and infected the university's database. However, Gasson of Reading University and other scientists say that a new world with a massively computerized population is imminent and inevitable. 

I believe that the implants of chips in humans will follow a similar path. The disadvantage of not wearing the implant will be such that it will not be something optional. "Last year, the line between man and machine became even more blurred, when Stanford University announced that its scientists had created the first purely transistor biological completely created from genetic material. 


The Attorney General of Mexico and senior officials of his staff have received VeriChip implants that give them access to safe areas in their headquarters and the following ones from the list to be chipped, reportedly, will be the military and the police of the country. 

The VeriChip distributor , Solusat, has also announced an agreement with the National Foundation for the Investigation of Kidnapped and Lost Children of Mexico, to promote the implementation of the microchip in the country's children. 

Now the company VeriChip has changed its name, after a flood of negative publicity and has become a promoter of what they call "biological detection systems", called PositiveID.

Other companies are also commercializing the microchip implants and their researchers are working to integrate them with GPS technology. It is predicted that when they succeed, the products will win a large international market. 


In Spain we all have the fingerprints registered in our ID for years, something that for citizens of other countries would represent an unacceptable intrusion into their privacy and yet it seems the most normal thing in the world.

If at this point someone believes that these control systems will not spread to Europe and in a decade to other countries in the world is that it has a serious problem with its naivety, you just have to visit other cities in the world. In all of them you will find computers, Internet, smartphones, tablets, Mcdonald's, Coca-Cola, VISA and Mastercard, Starbucks, Zara, Ikea, Nike-. 


Witness of biometric control: "Some of the biometric solutions are helping to solve vaccine supply problems in Africa. Today, a biometric vaccination record helps ensure that millions of young children receive the vaccine they need to save their lives. And knowing who has been vaccinated, these precious medicines that save lives are not wasted by an excess of vaccination in some and lack of vaccination in others. 


Kevin Warwick, professor of cybernetics at the University of Reading, described the discovery as the final component necessary for a biological computer to operate within living cells and reprogram living systems. It has an electronic device in its body that connects with the nervous system and his wife has another simpler device implanted in his arm. 

Internet entrepreneur and free software activist Jonathan Oxer, implanted himself a microchip in 2004, after obtaining the same kit that veterinarians use with pets. It is described as "a cyborg under construction." 


There are many, those who oppose what hides or masks these advances, go against Mother Nature never came out profitable for the human being, according to Katina Michael "Associate Professor at the University of Wollongong, RFID microchips are essentially an identifier only embedded in your body, and as we know, numbers can be stolen and the data can be hacked. Incorporating an external computer problem in the human body is full of dangers. 


clarity on the subterfuges that they will be used to justify the advancement of these mass control technologies: sick children, security, the fight against crime, the poor disabled old people or the lost kittens.

And with this, in the process, they will get anyone who refuses to accept them or exposes their dangers, to face the public opinion as a paranoid, retrograde and fanatical person, and that what we are living seems like a movie or Hollywood series

There are many citizens who oppose the use of the chip, even some religious groups speak of Biblical prophecies where such systems are cited, but not only the religious are those who oppose but also some scholars, psychologists, sociologists and intellectuals in general , which are objectively investigating some of their uses and also their consequences, has been published in various media which are some other objectives of the chip in the next decade since many have not been publicized in an open manner.

It will continue to be done slowly but without pause as it has been until now, so that individuals see it as something indispensable and logical, but only think for a moment that even the thoughts and emotions of citizens can be interpreted by means of impulses. so that if something suspicious is found in some citizen, the chip can be deactivated at any time, causing the citizen to practically cease to exist, at least in society, it will be like a kind of marginalized or social scourge that he will not even be able to buy It seems terrifying and crazy. The information has been used for many years, and is in the dose necessary to draw our own conclusions, and nothing goes unnoticed, and in the history of cinema, many movies have given us signals,"
