The biosecurity technological panopticon constructed by NSF-led PPP with big tech will create, host and facilitate outer wireless network of the panopticon, while NSF-funded IntraBioNets program builds inner network, through the interoperable biocyber wireless network between humans and the Internet, granting health care providers access to critical, private health information to conduct mass disease surveillance of the population.
The system engineers in the outer network formed the Resilient & Intelligent NextG Systems (RINGS), which consist of a public-private partnership (PPP) led by the National Science Foundation (NSF), other federal agencies (including the DoD) and multiple private sector actors, including Apple, Ericsson, Google, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Nokia, Qualcomm Technologies and VMware.
The RINGS program seeks to “accelerate research in areas that will potentially have a significant impact on emerging Next Generation (NextG) wireless and mobile communication, networking, sensing, and computing systems, along with global-scale services.” A total investment of $40 million includes contributions from each of the private partners. Approximately 40 awards were anticipated, each up to $1 million and up to 3 years in duration.
NextG systems are “future versions of today’s cellular, Wi-Fi and satellite networks that are expected to connect billions of people and revolutionize the relationship between users’ devices and cloud services.”
The RINGS program initially appears harmless but, when combined with the IntraBioNets program, the spurious gathering of this PPP alludes to a more sinister intent, when hosting an application that can track and monitor the health of living organisms, including humans, and deliver drug treatments back into the body.
In 2018, NSF, Division Of Computer and Network Systems (CNS), awarded a $300,000 grant of taxpayer dollars to the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, to fund the IntraNetsBio program. This IntraNetsBio program forms the inner network that connects the RINGS program’s work to the biosensor wireless network in the human body.
The goal of the IntraBioNets program was to solve challenges in developing a self-sustainable and bio-compatible network infrastructure that exploits the natural mechanisms of biological communication, on the cellular level, in the human body. The program models biological embedded computing devices that have the capability to gather and transfer information within the biological domain through an interface with the electrical domain of the Internet.
