Security Concerns of Future Technology Arriving Today - Gregory Carpenter
Because of the advancements in prosthetics after the last decade of wars, technology has made advancements beyond those of security. We are using yesterdays security with tomorrow’s technology, and it is not working. New technology allows for in vivo bioanorobotic technology to assist in reestablishing neurological functional continuity, minimizing peripheral neuropathy or establishing the neuro-human-machine interface after an avulsive trauma. The inherent vulnerability within the nano technology allows for exploitation and remote access or even real-time control of a prosthetic or even a persons neurological functioning. Neurostatic controls in these devices are also vulnerable causing malfunctions or unwanted actions out of the control of the user. Nanotechnology can also come equipped with processors, storage and the ability to communicate wirelessly. Some have embedded 3D printers producing segments of DNA or axons to be used as surrogates for malfunctioning or missing ones, can we allow these networks to go unregulated and open in a situation where security must never be compromised?

“In this case we asked experts to make their own predictions about the state of digital life by the year 2025,” the authors said. Striking patterns were found in the responses of nearly 2,600 experts and technology builders, they wrote.
“These experts foresee an ambient information environment where accessing the Internet will be effortless and most people will tap into it so easily it will flow through their lives ‘like electricity.’”
The experts predict “mobile, wearable, and embedded computing will be tied together in the Internet of Things, allowing people and their surroundings to tap into artificial intelligence-enhanced cloud-based information storage and sharing.”
DNA is treated as just another digital storage device. Instead of binary data being encoded as magnetic regions on a hard drive platter, strands of DNA that store 96 bits are synthesized, with each of the bases (TGAC) representing a binary value (T and G = 1, A and C = 0).
To read the data stored in DNA, you simply sequence it — just as if you were sequencing the human genome — and convert each of the TGAC bases back into binary. To aid with sequencing, each strand of DNA has a 19-bit address block at the start (the red bits in the image below) — so a whole vat of DNA can be sequenced out of order, and then sorted into usable data using the addresses.
Nanotech research is surging around the world. The United States will invest some $1.6 billion this year in nanotechnology research and development across 25 federal departments, agencies, and offices, coordinated through the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).3 Since the initiative was launched in 2001, more than $12 billion has been invested in areas ranging from basic research, computing, optics, electronics, alternative energy applications, textiles, new medical treatments and diagnostics, and defensive military applications. Although the scale of U.S. government–funded nanotech research is impressive, the private sector investment is estimated to be three times larger.
In just one decade, the Internet will be a “seamless part of how we live our everyday lives”.
Or it could be the means to a “very dystopian world that is also profoundly inegalitarian.”
“The Internet will shift from the place we find cat videos to a background capability that will be a seamless part of how we live our everyday lives. We won’t think about ‘going online’ or ‘looking on the Internet’ for something – we’ll just be online, and just look,” he said. But another perspective comes from John Markoff, senior writer for the Science section of the New York Times. “What happens the first time you answer the phone and hear from your mother or a close friend, but it’s actually not, and instead, it’s a piece of malware that is designed to social engineer you?” he asked.
“What kind of a world will we have crossed over into? I basically began as an Internet utopian, but I have since realized that the technical and social forces that have been unleashed by the microprocessor hold out the potential of a very dystopian world that is also profoundly inegalitarian. I often find myself thinking, ‘Who said it would get better?’”
SYSTEMS-BASED NEUROTECHNOLOGY FOR EMERGING THERAPIES (SUBNETS) vision is distinct from current therapeutic approaches it seeks to create an implanted, closed-loop diagnostic and therapeutic system for treating, and possibly even curing, neuropsychological illness.
The program also takes advantage of neural plasticity (feature of the brain by which the organ’s anatomy and physiology alter over time to support normal brain function)
RESTORING ACTIVE MEMORY (RAM) Develop new neuroprosthetics to bridge gaps in the injured brain. The end goal of RAM is to develop and test a wireless, fully implantable neural-interface medical device for human clinical use Development of multi-scale computational models with high spatial and temporal resolution that describe how neurons code declarative memories—those well-defined parcels of knowledge that can be consciously recalled and described in words, such as events, times, and places.
IN VIVO NANOPLATFORMS (IVN) Seeks to develop new classes of adaptable nanoparticles for persistent, distributed, unobtrusive physiologic and environmental sensing as well as the treatment of physiologic abnormalities, illness, and infectious disease.
NEURO FUNCTION, ACTIVITY, STRUCTURE, AND TECHNOLOGY (NEURO-FAST) The program seeks to enable unprecedented visualization and decoding of brain activity.
MICROPHYSIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS The platform should be a flexible, user-friendly and reliable design that allows biological components to interact in a physiologically relevant manner and able to sustain the resident tissues for up to four weeks.
BIOCHRONICITY (Much like NTP) Time is a fundamental variable in all science, including biology. Biological clocks regulate almost every function in the human body, yet scientists lack a clear understanding of the coordination of timing on multiple scales to influence processes such as cell-cycle progression, growth, metabolism, aging and cell death.
Each nerve is a cordlike structure that contains many axons, also called nerve fibres.
Within a nerve, each axon is surrounded by a layer of connective tissue called the endoneurium.
The axons are bundled together into groups called fascicles, and each fascicle is wrapped in a layer of connective tissue called the perineurium.
The entire nerve is wrapped in a layer of connective tissue called the epineurium.
A nerve conveys information in the form of electrochemical impulses (known as nerve impulses or action potentials) carried by the individual neurons that make up the nerve.
These impulses are extremely fast, with some myelinated neurons conducting at speeds up to 120 m/s.
The impulses travel from one neuron to another by crossing a synapse, the message is converted from electrical to chemical and then back to electrical.
CRISPR-Cas systems for editing, regulating and targeting genomes
Targeted genome editing using engineered nucleases has rapidly gone from being a niche technology to a mainstream method used by many biological researchers. This widespread adoption has been largely fueled by the emergence of the clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeat (CRISPR) technology, an important new approach for generating RNA-guided nucleases, such as Cas9, with customizable specificities. Genome editing mediated by these nucleases has been used to rapidly, easily and efficiently modify endogenous genes in a wide variety of biomedically important cell types and in organisms that have traditionally been challenging to manipulate genetically. Furthermore, a modified version of the CRISPR-Cas9 system has been developed to recruit heterologous domains that can regulate endogenous gene expression or label specific genomic loci in living cells. Although the genome-wide specificities of CRISPR-Cas9 systems remain to be fully defined, the power of these systems to perform targeted, highly efficient alterations of genome sequence and gene expression will undoubtedly transform biological research and spur the development of novel molecular therapeutics for human disease.
Beta thalassemias are a group of inherited blood disorders. oxygen carrying hemoglobin molecule is altered by genetic mutations
They are caused by reduced or absent synthesis of the beta chains of hemoglobin that result in variable outcomes ranging from severe anemia to clinically asymptomatic individuals.
Global annual incidence is estimated at 1 in 100,000.
“The genetic changes to embryos, known as germline modification, are heritable, they could have an unpredictable effect on future generations.”
Bioengineering scientists from Parabon Nanolabs have developed a new drug to fight gliobalstoma — a lethal brain cancer.– using a computer aided design (CAD) program linked to a special search platform and nano-scale, 3D printer. The technology allows a designed drug to be built, and then ‘printed out”, one atom/one molecule at a time, like a ‘molecular sentence’ on paper. The cancer-fighting drug was designed using a new DNA self-assembly technique enabled by a ‘drag and drop’ feature of the CAD program.
The new design technology is called the Parabon Essemblix Drug Development Platform and combines a CAD software program called inSequio with the newest nano fabrication technology. The system, which received its official patent award earlier this year, was funded in part by the National Science Foundation.
In such places as Brooklyn and Baltimore many DIY (do it yourself) biologists have tackled real-world problems, for example by developing arsenic-sensing bacteria or a bacteria-produced blood substitute that can be stored for long periods.
As a result of small integrated computers, even tiny weapons could be aimed at targets remote in time and space from the attacker. This will not only impair defense, but also will reduce post-attack detection and accountability. Reduced accountability could reduce civility and security, and increase the attractiveness of some forms of crime.
If nanofactory - built weapons were available from a black market or a home factory, it would be quite difficult to detect them before they were launched; a random search capable of spotting them would almost certainly be intrusive enough to violate current human rights standards.
