"Tumours, Tracking, and Tyranny: The Downside to Implantable Microchip." Stand-in keynote address by Dr Katherine Albrecht, CASPIAN.

This video was taken of Dr Katherine Albrecht delivering her stand-in keynote address at the IEEE Symposium on Technology and Society (ISTAS) held at the University of Wollongong 7-10 June 2010. Dr Albrecht's talk was titled "Tumours, Tracking, and Tyranny: The Downside to Implantable Microchip?"

Dr Albrecht is the director of CASPIAN and the author of the acclaimed: "Spychips: How major corporations and government plan to track your every move with RFID." The theme of the conference was "The Social Implications of Emerging Technologies" and Associate Professor Katina Michael who was the program chair of the conference found it necessary to ensure there was a talk on radio-frequency identification devices for the retail sector.

The program committee, thank Dr Albrecht for delivering a keynote address at only 24 hours notice, given the unforeseen circumstances encountered by another speaker.
