Go "get chipped": A brief overview of non-medical implants between 2013-2017 (part 2)

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Katina Michael, Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Technology and Society Magazine, presents a brief discussion on non-medical implants between 2013-2017. The author recognizes there are significant social implications relative to implanting chips in humans. Among the implantees seem to be a growing list of journalists who are getting implanted for the millisecond shock factor of their online audiences. As readers we need to be aware of the message being sold to us by companies with vested interests, and a variety of emerging stakeholders. Survey bias is ever present and as consumers we need to always ask the fundamental questions before we make our own minds up about the latest technology rewards.
