I apologize ahead of time if this has already been covered.
In the past few months there's been a lot of coverage on human implants used for tracking and identification in the media. Many people, even here at
ATS, dismiss this technology to be any real threat to humanity. Well, I'm here to open the eyes and minds of those who remain stuck behind a wall of
Enter LifeLog. This is bastard child (still in womb) of all the microchip implant technology you've read about plus some twists.
From the DARPA project site itself:
The Information Processing Technology Office (IPTO) of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting proposals to develop
an ontology-based (sub)system that captures, stores, and makes accessible the flow of one person’s experience in and interactions with the world in
order to support a broad spectrum of associates/assistants and other system capabilities. The objective of this "LifeLog" concept is to be able to
trace the "threads" of an individual's life in terms of events, states, and relationships.
You can view the entire report here
LifeLog is a way for the Government to keep tabs on everything you do. Every business trip you make. Every interaction you have with a homeless
person. Every interaction with your wife and your mistress. Every time you go to church. Every time you're at a strip club. It's a diary of your
life that's being watched by Government/Military officials. It's the Truman Show, if you will. As of now I'm not sure the project is being
considered for civilian use, but in the mean time...
I think I'll deny ignorance.
