First you must smash all the computers

September 21, 2011

My suspicion: we are about ten years away from self-generating biometric primary keys. The idea of trying to “run a match” based on biometric (or behavioral) attributes against an existing database will become obsolete, since the analytical systems will be able to compute a unique ID on the fly, knowing that the same patterns will factor down to the same key no matter when or where they are harvested. You won’t be assigned an ID — you’ll simply be the ID.

Societal downfall via injective homomorphism. Shockingly plausible.
