As a result of
the coronavirus, we are witnessing
a push towards,
...due to its potential
to spread the virus.
Welcome to your new
future under the coronavirus...!
Whether you think the virus is a hoax or the reported figures are
far more than what's being said, the one thing that will affect us
all is the "solution" in the grand scheme of the,
That being said, these
"solutions" will be jammed down our throats and suddenly become a
new part of everyday society like it has all become in China.
In China, residents are now harassed by drones telling them to "stay
indoors," forced quarantines for some, as well as checkpoints for
taking their temperatures around transportation stations such as
airports and subway
And while that might seem
like a good idea to stop the virus spreading, ultimately it can't be
ignored that our freedoms and liberties are being sacrificed for
But I digress, this is

a dictatorship in this writer's opinion, requiring facial
recognition to even use the internet, as we have
what happens when
that type of
Orwellian society comes to the
Well, the screening
procedures happening in China may come to the U.S. (and to the
rest of the world) sooner than you
Next year, if
approves it, a military
biosensor designed by
Profusa and backed by
DARPA could help spot new
infections weeks before symptoms begin to even show.
The sensor has two parts.
The first is a 3mm
Inserted under the
skin via syringe, the string is fitted with a specially
engineered molecule that changes color when the body begins to
fight an infection.
The other part of the
device is an electronic component attached to the skin.
The sensor then sends
light through the skin, detects if the color change on the
string occurs, and generates a signal that the wearer can send
to a health care professional or website, etc.
While there are bad
solutions like forcefully quarantining or testing people
which will only induce more panic, Canadian artificial intelligence
BlueDot for example
warned about the new coronavirus
days ahead of the official alerts from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC)
and the World Health Organization (WHO).
This showcases that A.I.
intelligence) can be used for good and can help humanity
besides just being used for evil.
However, if combined with
injectable biosensor technology backed by DARPA, it's
probably not going to be used in the best way possible...
Another thing we are seeing in China where the coronavirus has still
hit the worst (as of March 07, 2020), robots are being used more and
more to deliver food, help those who sick in hospitals and other
uses as Yahoo
Although we should never blindly trust artificial intelligence, it
could be used to help give us an edge or head start when it comes to
potential pandemics/epidemics like COVID-19 is evolving into.
Further, as illustrated
above, those little droids can be like a dog - man's best friend
helping humanity in times of need.
Federal Reserve has announced that
it's quarantining physical cash coming out of China. As
notes, Bitcoin fixes the issue of a
virus being transferred from contact with physical money.
cryptocurrency has largely
benefited humanity - redistributing the wealth and allowing
individuals to be their own banks - the danger lies in government
fiat digital currencies.
Unfortunately, we may
soon see several governments release fiat digital
currencies due to the concern over the transmission of
coronavirus, as well as the stock market seemingly ready to
