Modern technology has led to several advancements that make life easier. However, as technology makes life easier, concerns have been raised regarding chip implants. These concerns are addressed regarding how chip implants will simplify life in the present and future. To address these concerns, Paul Mampilly gave his insights, which are listed below, on the meaning of chip implants, how they work, their benefits and possible risks.
Microchips are tiny cards that are inserted under the skin. They store personal information like medical history and other crucial documents that one may need from time to time. Microchips are believed to have the potential of eliminating the inconveniences that people face by opening doors to limitless possibilities. These chip implants are set to replace wallets, door keys, credit cards, and debit cards. They are expected to give people the freedom of going on with their normal lives without worrying about things like keys and cards that they have forgotten. The chips will also simplify health activities since people’s medical histories will be saved on them.
Just like other technological innovations, there are risks associated with microchips. It is risky if others can easily access a person’s data. Paul Mampilly believes that other than microchips, search engines are also accessing people’s private information without their knowledge. Other technological innovations that also spy on people’s data include smartphones, online shopping platforms, electronic tollbooth and credit card machines. Regardless of the risks involved with microchips, Mampilly believes that benefits exceed their risks. He is also certain that these chips will make it convenient to carry out day-to-day activities.
