Harvard Professor Margo Seltzer warned that miniature mosquito drones will one day forcibly extract your DNA on behalf of the government and insurance companies as she told elitists at the World Economic Forum in Davos that privacy was dead.
‘Welcome to today. We’re already in that world,’ said Margo Seltzer, a professor in computer science at Harvard University. ‘Privacy as we knew it in the past is no longer feasible… How we conventionally think of privacy is dead,’ she added.
Seltzer went on to predict that in the near future, mosquito-sized robots would perpetually monitor individuals as well as collecting DNA and biometric information for governments and corporations.
Another Harvard researcher into genetics said it was ‘inevitable’ that one’s personal genetic information would enter more and more into the public sphere.Sophia Roosth said intelligence agents were already asked to collect genetic information on foreign leaders to determine things like susceptibility to disease and life expectancy.
Another speaker, tech entrepreneur Anthony Goldbloom, told the panel that young people no longer cared about surveillance issues and were perfectly willing to trade privacy for convenience.
“People often behave better when they have the sense that their actions are being watched,” said Goldbloom, seemingly invoking O’Brien from George Orwell’s 1984.
