Harvard Prof: Govt Mosquito Drones Will Extract Your DNA...

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Harvard Professor Margo Seltzer warned that miniature mosquito drones will one day forcibly extract your DNA on behalf of the government, reports

Seltzer, a professor in computer science at Harvard University, said,, “Privacy as we knew it in the past is no longer feasible… How we conventionally think of privacy is dead.”

Seltzer went on to predict that in the near future, mosquito-sized robots would perpetually monitor individuals as well as collecting DNA and biometric information for governments and corporations.



  1. I'm betting the little mosquito drones will need FAA licenses ... and we all boned unless Uber and Lyft start a competing unlicensed private mosquito drone service....

  2. The law of diminishing returns applies here. The more data they collect, the less capable they are to parse it. (I'm feeling optimistic today, it's sunny. Tomorrow, maybe not so much).
