What are your thoughts on microchip implants? Do you think they will positively contribute to society?

Here is what I think.

We already use smartphones, they have become our own personal identification. We have the forced National ID, which we are required to possess at all times and may get in serious trouble if found without one. We could abolish the National ID and have optional, not mandatory implants. I think they'll allow us to easily combat human trafficking. If we can integrate GPS tracking in such a chip, a missing child can not only be found easily, but we can eliminate the chances of such a tragedy happening. We could also devise a way to pay using Bitcoin by scanning it, similar to the QR code method we have.

Of course, we are many many years behind such a thing to ever be released. The technology exists alright, but not in an implantable form due to public opinion (See: Google Glass, SmartWatch, for wearable devices)

What are your thoughts on microchip implants? Do you think they will positively contribute to society?

I would love one, even if it was only used for memory storage.

The ability to remember every programming function instantly would be a big help to me.  I'm always looking into reference manuals since at my old age I can no longer remember everything I read.

Well first off who is "we"?  My country for example does not have a forced national id which we are required to posses at all times so it would help to know what country you are from.

As for the rest, I personally would avoid them if at all possible.  Given a quick look at how the government and large corporations have taken virtually every piece of technology and used it for their own gain whenever possible, I can't really see any benefit to myself.

This is an excellent reason, remember Johnny Mnemonic's "My brain can hold eighty gigs of data"?

In my country you get your ass kicked by cops for not having ID

Um how? It's not going to be linked to a network unless you want it to, I'm talking about integrating Linux with the human body here  Grin Grin

microchip implantation has become a trend in today's technology, the use of this technology called nanotechnology, the technology is widely used for the manufacture of smartphones, computer microchips, and others, many microchips installed on smartphones and electronic gadgets, the microchip implantation make faster performance with smaller design space or mini ...  Cool

I think microchip implantation will inevitably be the status quo in the distant future. As for the near future, I don't see it being implemented with public fears of government vouyerism. I myself would gladly volunteer for a microchip implant if it can let me do things such as monitor my health or allow me some other form of convenience that would make up for the intrusion. I think the future of humanity will move towards automation and nanotechnology. Implantation will then be par the course for the common human.

I don't think thew will ever contribute in a positive way.  It will just be a way for big brother to watch and control our every move.  With credit, debit, and cell phones, we are almost at the point where almost every move we make is already documented in some way.  I imagine eventually being micro chipped will become mandatory at birth.

I already notice that the younger generation is a lot more agreeable to have very little privacy. I can only see it getting worse.  Eventually everyone will be open to microchip implants.  I'm glad I'll likely be dead by then, because thats not a world I want to live in.

please those that want to merge, please do it... you will be dissolved and not disturb us again ever after... and we can live and love naturally without you. the integration process will be painful, hazardous and risk prone... but if you do it freely... enjoy you will be a pioneer Cheesy. But don't except to get an edge over us the natural. Always remember naturals>tranhumanists and it isn't me saying it...

edit: I hope that you are still "natural" enough to understand why...

money is faster...

It is utterly shocking to me that people are even contemplating this as a positive thing. You are the turkey that is voting for Christmas, you may as well relinquish your rights and liberties now for that would be the inevitable consequence of such a move. Why would you allow other people to control you, after all, someone would have to make decisions about what chips get access to resources and which don't, which by default would mean they have power over you.

There need to be a tradeoff between privacy and progress.

If giving up certain data mean we can cure cancer faster, or cheaper way to bring products into the market, I am all up for it.

Did you make a new account just to say that?

No, but even it that were the case why not comment on the substance of the argument rather than irrelevant questions?

But you can give that data now if you really wanted to so you are posing a false choice.

Any reason why you are not using the same account to argue?
