NEW YORK – Accenture Plc and Microsoft Corp are teaming up to build a digital ID network using blockchain technology, as part of a United Nations-supported project to provide legal identification to 1.1 billion people worldwide with no official documents.
The companies unveiled a prototype of the network on Monday at the UN headquarters in New York during the second summit of ID2020, a public-private consortium promoting the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goal of providing legal identity for everyone on the planet.
The project aims to help individuals such as refugees prove who they are in order to gain access to basic services such as education and healthcare…. read more
Face-detecting systems in China now authorize payments, provide access to facilities and track down criminals. According to the current MIT Technology Review, this technology may soon spread to other countries around the world.
Speaking of new technology, the Drone Racing League World Championships are on television this week. Last year, more than 30 million people from 40 countries watched. Venture capitalists have invested $20 million in the sport this month.
Meanwhile, Amazon is on track to become America’s largest clothing retailer. It is planning a program called “Prime Wardrobe” that lets you try on clothes before you buy them. The company is already expanding its grocery delivery business and recently agreed to acquire Whole Foods…. read more
…The creepy technology raises security and privacy issues, as the data generated could be used to track people. SJ Rail is not offering to microchip people itself, and passengers wanting to use the service must already have the futuristic technology.
Microchip implants are not new in Sweden, and an estimated 20,000 people already have them, using the devices to swipe in and out of the office, and even pay for food.
Speaking to the Sun Online, Stephen Ray, press officer at SJ, said that the idea was put forward by a technology start-up in Stockholm called Epicenter, where many of the staff are already implanted with microchips.

BIG Brother is watching. Your front door, television and child’s doll could all be spying on you.
The internet of things, everyday objects connected to the web, can send and receive data and appliances have the power to gain control and track your behaviour and movements.
At least 40 per cent of Australian homes now have at least one internet of things device and they are disguised as normal appliances. They can be fridges, kettles or even window blinds.
There are warnings about the danger of having an internet of things device in your home. Just last year a Norwegian Consumer Council discovered a children’s doll was recording what children were saying and sending the information to a US company, which could share and use the data in a number of different ways…. read more
I still remember my first crime. I was 6 or 7-years-old and was standing with my mother in the grocery store checkout line. As she paid for our food, I snatched a pack of chewing gum from a nearby rack and buried it in my pocket.
I have not shoplifted since. Apparently, I’m the exception to the rule.
The National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (its existence tells us this is a serious problem) reports that 1 in 11 Americans is a shoplifter. Many become addicted to the rush of getting away with their crime; 57 percent of adult shoplifters say it is hard for them to stop even when they’re apprehended.
Enter facial-recognition software, which uses biometrics of known shoplifters from store databases and police logs. Every visitor’s face is tracked automatically and compared at 30 frames per second. A match is sent to employees’ smartphones. One company says its software has reduced shoplifting by 91 percent…. read more
opinion: What are they preparing for? Why would they want to control everything you do, say and be? They want a one world money, one world religion and a one world system? They are preparing people to be controlled by the government. We have no idea what is going to happen when the Tribulation begins. Revelation does draw us a picture but the reality of it is a different story. If you want to know what they are doing then dive into the Word of God and learn about Him.
During the tribulation there will be three players in control. This chapter among others describes who they are and what they control.
1. The Dragon – devil
2. Beast from Sea – Antichrist
3. Beast from Land – False Prophet
