Every day, these devices will generate 2.5 quintillion bytes of various data about the environment, transportation, nutrition, biometrics, social interaction and daily human life. Thus, the fantasies of transhumanists, convinced that a person is an inferior creature and requires improvement, are increasingly being embodied in reality. A very interesting story on this topic was released on the Slovo tv YouTube channel.
“In the 20th century, wireless technology embedded in the human body was nothing more than science fiction.
But in our time, equipment connected via Wi-Fi, such as heart rate monitors and devices that track human sleep biorhythms, have become an integral part of American life.
How did it happen that bionic technology moved so quickly from science fiction to reality? What does such a thing as the Internet of the human body mean?
A researcher at the RAND Corporation, a think tank that brings together some of the most influential and daunting global approaches and technologies today, is studying this phenomenon. Consumers and politicians alike need to know this when we begin to peer into uncharted areas.
Mary Lee, mathematician at RAND Corporation:
“The Internet of our body or IoB (Internet of body) is, in essence, a whole operating system.
This is a set of devices that are connected to the Internet, including a special program that collects a person's personal health information. And which can change the functions of the body.
We see the Internet of the body as a collection of all these devices, and all this data that these devices collect personally about you. And as for medicine: for example, your doctor can automatically track the biorhythms of your heart through a heart rate monitor placed on your body, connected to the Internet, and determine if everything is in order.
And if something happens, he can better track, study how your body works.
These internet body devices could revolutionize healthcare.
An unprecedented amount of patient data could be transferred to hospitals and used for the benefit of patients to meet their treatment needs.
Now there are tablets, inside of which there are electronic sensors that signal whether the patient has taken the necessary medication or not.
There is also such a thing as precision medicine.
The meaning of precision medicine is that a special medicine or a set of medicines is created for a specific person, specifically for you, that is, we are talking about personalized treatment. In my opinion, it is very useful.
Today, healthcare does take into account the average patient response data. And with such accurate data taken from a specific person, it would be possible to more accurately treat this or that disease.
But the internet of the body also raises some concerns.
This market is still little regulated.
And there are risks associated with the unique vulnerable information that these devices collect. "
First of all, there are cyber risks related to the potential for the breakdown of this system, the risks of confidential data leakage. So far, at the state level, this information is poorly protected.
It is not clear yet who will have access to this information? Who will own it, who can sell it; how will it be used?
There are even risks associated with a threat to security, both for individual countries and for the entire world community as a whole.
Here is an example of such risks that have already become a reality. For example, in 2018, very secret information about the activities of the military and the locations of military bases became available, this was due to the fitness trackers of military personnel.
On January 29, 2018, RBC published an article entitled "Data on US military bases became available thanks to fitness trackers."
A map appeared on the Internet, on which the movements of users of fitness trackers were recorded, journalists found on it the routes of American soldiers at military bases and, presumably, secret objects.
Published in 2017, The global heat map, an interactive map, highlighted the routes of people using gadgets such as FitBit and JawBone. She "disclosed highly sensitive information about the location and activities of American military bases," wrote The Washington Post.
US military bases are highlighted on the map, "like a Christmas tree." On it one could see, for example, a detailed map of the American military base in Kandahar (Afghanistan).
The Pentagon has purchased equipment that transmits data on the location of the military with high accuracy to third-party organizations. Devices of this type are also vulnerable to hacking.
Ultimately, the internet of bodies and the internet of things must be merged. Man, in essence, will become a thing.
In November 2020, the Activist Post published an article reviewing the law that identified legal and social issues related to IoT and IoT technologies. Additional chilling details and images were presented in Truth Unmuted under the headline Internet of Bodies and Hacking Your DNA - How Implantable Devices Will Connect Your Body to the Internet.
The RAND Corporation has published a report entitled "Internet Enforcement - Opportunities, Risks, and Governance."
The RAND Corporation was and remains the main organization at the center of that intertwining of Pentagon aspirations and financial greed, which President Eisenhower intended to call the military-industrial legislative complex.
RAND literally changed the modern world, but very few people know about it.
And with the release of the RAND report, there are a lot of concerns.
What is Internet Tel?
RAND defines the Internet of Bodies as a growing industry of devices that control the human body, collect health and other personal information, and transmit that data over the Internet.
To be considered a device of the Internet of bodies, the technology must contain software or have computing capabilities, be able to communicate with an Internet-connected device or network.
The device of the Internet of bodies must also satisfy one or both of the following requirements: collect personal health data, or biometric data, be able to change the functions of the human body.
The technology that Hollywood has represented over the years in dystopian sci-fi films is now a reality.
The technocratic overlords of science, healthcare, finance and big technology want humanity to move from wearable devices to devices built into our bodies in the very near future.
How does the Internet of bodies intersect with the Internet of things? IoT devices such as smart meters, smartwatches, virtual assistants, and self-driving cars connect directly to the Internet or over a local area network. As Internet devices become more commonplace, experts predict that both public acceptance and the desire to acquire devices for Internet bodies will increase.
A report from the RAND Corporation predicts that by 2025 there will already be more than 41 billion active devices on the Internet of bodies, generating 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day about the environment, transportation, geolocation, nutrition, exercise, biometrics, social interaction, and human daily life.
The explosive growth in the number of Internet of bodies devices will lead to their further popularity.
The RAND report shows how aggressive and ubiquitous Internet of bodies technology can become.
By the time this is fully realized, no part of the human body can escape its interference.
They even plan to connect our toilets to the Internet - they want to monitor our waste using BioBot technology to determine what we eat, what drugs we can take, and at the same time - to analyze our genetic material. "
