The modern science and technology brought a lot of comforts in our lives. Medical
science especially helped humankind to fight deadly diseases and now people are able to live happier and healthier life. During last few years, medical chip implants bring revolutionary changes in many people. A human chip implant is an integrated circuit device that is implanted in the body of a human being. The chip typically contains a unique ID number that can be linked to information contained in an external database, such as personal identification, medical history, medications, allergies and other contact information.
Medical chip implants are also used as tracking devices. There are a lot of controversies about the use of medical chip implants. There are positive and negative uses of every technology so is the same case with medical chip implants. It can be used in both ways. Privacy lobbyists and security experts doubt the usefulness and wonder about the risks that this technology implies. In fact, not only lobbyists but many other experts also fear that although it will reduce the risk of identity theft, but it will also increase the costs in terms of privacy, and maybe it will become out of range of many people. The main reason behind this fear is maybe due to the reason that technology is still in its early stage and not very common.
The human chip implant is a very highly advanced technology that is in used by credit card and smart card companies. The chip may contain all types of logins and passwords, medical information, building entry codes, bank accounts and thousands of other codes and information. However, fear of leakage of all these valuable information is still there because criminals also manage to steal such information. Still researchers and technology experts are working to find the ways to a foolproof security system for these chips so the data saved in the chip remain safe and delinquents can’t get access to such information.
Furthermore, many industries are taking advantage of this highly advanced technology such as in many stores where wireless credit card payments are acceptable, but we may expect that in near future, we will be able to see more advanced technology that can save data with total security and dependability.
