Os portugueses passam cada vez mais tempo a falar ao telemóvel devido aos planos de chamadas “a zero cêntimos” para todas as redes. Mas, para os adolescentes e para alguns adultos, o telefonema tradicional parece ser uma coisa do passado. Há pessoas que ficam em ansiedade e stresse quando recebem chamadas de voz.
|UK Corporations Preparing To Introduce Mandatory Microchips For Employees
Posted: 13 Nov 2018 05:33 PM PST
Large British companies will be introducing implant microchips to their employees so they can not only spy on them, but also restrict them from accessing sensitive information within these corporations.
Biohax, a Swedish company is in talks with a number of huge UK legal and financial firms to implant all their staff with these devices.
The chip, which is about the size of a grain of rice, uses near-field communication readable at a compatible terminal, similar to how a card reader might work. Biohax said the devices have been tested for decades and cleared by the Food and Drug Administration.
The Blaze reports:
These companies have sensitive documents they are dealing with,” Jowan Osterlund, the founder of Biohax and a former professional body piercer, told the news outlet. “[The chips] would allow them to set restrictions for whoever.”
A syringe is used to place the chip in an area between the thumb and forefinger, according to the report. Osterlund said the procedure is similar to ear piercing and takes “about two seconds.” The microchips operate via “near field communication” technology, similar to what is used by no-contact bank cards.
“In a company with 200,000 employees, you can offer this as an opt-in,” Osterlund told the Telegraph.
Biohax teamed up with Wisconsin-based Three Square Market in 2017. The company became the first to offer microchips for free and about 50 signed up for the trial, according to the report.
In addition to controlling access to restricted areas, the microchips are billed as way for employees to speed up tasks such as accessing company printers or buying food from the company cafeteria.
Osterlund claims interest in the devices is so strong that he plans to open an office in London next year.
In Switzerland, an estimated 4,000 people are implanted with microchips, including about 85 of the 500 people employed by Tui, a travel operator. Biohax also has bout 800 customers use the chips for travel instead of using a train ticket, according to the report.
What’s behind this?
Osterlund claims the microchips are just a community service that he offers. He told the Telegraph people who don’t like the idea are on a “learning curve.”
“If this came from a government, I’d be like yeah, you know what, no that’s not going happen,” he said. “We’re a private actor, we’re doing this with our community, for our community.”

China’s state news agency has debuted a virtual anchor designed to be able to deliver the news 24 hours a day.
Xinhua unveiled its “artificial intelligence news anchor” Wednesday at an internet conference in the eastern city of Wuzhen.
«The “Singularity” is rapidly approaching.
Soon, AI will become self-conscious and more intelligent than humans and coexistence will be impossible.
In March, Google’s Director of Engineering Ray Kurzweil said that “within few years AI will have human-level intelligence.”

«Nanochips and Smart Dust are the new technological means for the advancement of the human microchipping agenda. Due to their incredibly tiny size, both nanochips and Smart Dust have the capacity to infiltrate the human body, become lodged within, and begin to set up a synthetic network on the inside which can be remotely controlled from the outside. Needless to say, this has grave freedom, privacy and health implications, because it means the New World Order would be moving from controlling the outside world (environment/society) to controlling the inside world (your body).»
