Description & Coverage
Description:

Automatic identification has evolved to use techniques that can identify an object or subject without direct human intervention. Such devices include the bar code, magnetic-stripe, integrated circuit, and biometric and radio-frequency identification.

Innovative Automatic Identification & Location-Based Services: From Bar Codes to Chip Implants emphasizes the convergence and trajectory of automatic identification and location-based services toward chip implants and real-time positioning capabilities. Recording the history of automatic identification, this book also discusses the social, cultural, and ethical implications of the technological possibilities with respect to national security initiatives.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Bar code
  • Biomedical
  • Biometric Identification
  • Case Studies
  • Chip implants
  • Geographic Information Systems
  • Integrated circuit
  • Interviews
  • Location-Based Services
  • Magnetic-strip
  • Radio-frequency identification
  • Uberveillance
  • Wearable Computing
Reviews and Testimonials

This book details the social implications of technology, and how new emerging innovations are completely changing the rules of engagement.

– Katina Michael, University of Wollongong, Australia

This work is an important corrective to the idea that technology operates in a vacuum. It is a thorough interdisciplinary study that examines the relationship between technology, “philosophy, ethics, culture, religion, sociology, political science, law, and economics,” and is rooted in the spirit of social analysts and futurists such as Lewis Mumford, Jacques Ellul, Marshall McLuhan, Raymond Kurzweil, Eric Toffler, Nicholas Negroponte, and Bill Gates. [...] Timely and needed.

– G. Mick Smith, Computing Reviews

Katina Michael Ph.D., M.TransCrimPrev, B.I.T is Associate Professor in the School of Information Systems and Technology at the University of Wollongong. Katina presently holds a full-time appointment as the Associate Dean - International of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences. She is the IEEE Technology and Society Magazine editor-in-chief and also serves on the editorial board of Elsevier’s Computers & Security journal. Since 2008 she has been a board member of the Australian Privacy Foundation, and in 2011 elected Vice Chair. Michael researches on the socio-ethical implications of emerging technologies. She has also conducted research on the regulatory environment surrounding the tracking and monitoring of people using commercial global positioning systems (GPS) applications in the area of dementia, mental illness, parolees, and minors for which she was awarded an Australian Research Council Discovery grant. Michael has written and edited six books, guest edited numerous special issue journals on themes related to radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags, supply chain management, location-based services, innovation, surveillance/uberveillance, and big data. She has published over 125 academic peer reviewed papers and was responsible for the creation of the human factors series of workshops hosted annually since 2006 on the “Social Implications of National Security”, sponsored by the Research Network for a Secure Australia. Katina was the program chair for IEEE’s International Symposium on Technology and Society (ISTAS) in 2010 at the University of Wollongong, and 2013 at the University of Toronto. She is a Senior Member of the IEEE. She is well-known for her research into the social implications of microchipping people.
M.G. Michael Ph.D. (ACU), M.A (Hons) (MacqUni), M.Theol (SydUni), B.Theol (SCD), B.A.(SydUni), DipProfCouns (AIPC) is an Honorary Associate Professor in the School of Information Systems and Technology at the University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia. Michael is a theologian and historian with cross-disciplinary qualifications in the humanities and who introduced the concept of überveillance into the privacy and bioethics literature. Michael brings with him a unique perspective to Information Technology. His formal studies include Ancient History, Theology, General Philosophy, Political Sociology, Ethics, Linguistics, and Government. He was previously the coordinator of Information & Communication Security Issues and since 2005 has guest-lectured and tutored in Location-Based Services, IT & Citizen Rights, Principles of eBusiness, and IT & Innovation. The focus of his current research extends to modern hermeneutics and the Apocalypse of John; the historical antecedents of modern cryptography; the auto-ID trajectory; data protection, privacy and ethics related issues; biometrics, RFID and chip implants; national security and government policy; dataveillance and überveillance; and more broadly the system dynamics between technology and society. Michael is a member of the American Academy of Religion (AAR). He has guest edited the December 2006 volume of Prometheus, several IEEE Technology and Society Magazine issues in 2010-11, an issue for Information Technology Cases (2011) and more recently the Journal of Location-Based Services. He is also the proceedings editor of four national security workshops sponsored by the Australian Research Council’s Research Network for a Secure Australia.
