Comcast is working on an in-home device that tracks people’s health
Timestamp this one. We warned about facial recognition on a mass scale spreading from China. It has. Now word comes that Comcast is working to track our health (no doubt with 5G technology).
If you think the data collected will remain private you are naive. Sooner or later the government will get that information. Also the insurance companies. And Pharma. And maybe your employer.
The device will monitor people’s basic health metrics using ambient sensors, with a focus on whether someone is making frequent trips to the bathroom or spending more time than usual in bed. Comcast is also building tools for detecting falls, which are common and potentially fatal for seniors, the people said.
