Can Computer Chips May Be Designed As Self-Destructive

The Mission Impossible movie may soon be replicated in our real life. Engineers at the Xerox PARC are working a new kind of chip that will be able to explode into tiny and irreparable pieces by following a single command.

Researchers unveiled their new chip recently at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is a part of their vanishing programmable resources project.

The project works on concerns related to breaches of data as well as compromised privacy rise.

According to a senior scientist at PARC in Palo Alto, California, Gregory Whiting, the agency are looking ahead to come up with such a system that is rapid and also compatible with commercial electronics.

After several hacks and breaches of data over time, again and again, questions have been raised over privacy and how to protect the personal information of people in industries like retail, healthcare and also military.

The answer to questions raised seems to be with the self-destructing or transient technology. With such advancement it is believed to be playing a key role in securing the sensitive data of people.

Research assistant at The Research Foundation for the State University of New York, Christopher Kotfila, said the self-destructing data may offer us required solution in which the control over digital communication will be shifted to the hands of owners.

Few of the data theft included the recent Ashley Madison case and prior to it were with Snapchat and Google’s own Gmail service.
