Patrick Tucker, technology editor, DefenseOne, in re:  DoD looking at an under-the-skin biosensor: may get FDA approval next year potentially to predict disease. A sliver of hydrogel, about three meters long, carries a specific molecule that reacts in accord with human biology; changes color; anther device on top of the skin sends a to the sensor, which reads the signal then sends the info to a central [office].  Cd be used in the consumer market to see a potential outbreak before everyone’s coughing and sneezing.

Whom would the data be transferred to? Can elect to send when the [human] chooses to.

5G technology:  to offset the concern about Huawei.  Pentagon has four bases with which to test this tech.  SecDef Esper has been vocal on 5G, especially concerning NATO.

Opening areas of the electronic spectrum with the commercial market to encourage the private sector to develop 5G

Joint ____ Center:  will serve as the central node for all DoD AI in the years ahead.  Certainly, identifying targets, predictive maintenance.
