Mark Gasson – the first person to be infected by a computer virus using an RFID device implanted in his hand. His TED lecture has the same name as his book: “Human implants: from invasive to pervasive”. His views are sympathetic regarding implantation of people for both medical and enhancement purposes. He mentions in his lecture that implanted people regard implants as part of their bodies, while Vincent Walsh published in another post on this blog mentions in his own more critical lecture that there are patients suffering from tremors who have chosen because of the experienced dehumanization not to use implants. Gauss does mention that implants can be hacked into today, but he avoids pointing out that this would create the incentive of remotely also changing human behavior by a 3rd party in any given direction. As any other scientist in his field he envisions a world with people carrying implants – not for safety – but for enhancement.
