ABSTRACT. Empirical research provides mixed results regarding implanting microchips in employees. Using and replicating data from Pew Research Center, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding U.S. adults who say: the possibility of an implanted device for a much improved ability to concentrate and process information makes them enthusiastic/worried (%), the possibility of an implanted device for a much improved ability to concentrate and process information is something they/most people would (not) want (%), implanted devices giving healthy people much improved cognitive abilities would change society a great deal/some/not too much/at all (%), possible positive/negative outcomes are likely to happen as a result of implanted devices giving healthy people much improved cognitive abilities (%), an implanted device for improved cognitive abilities would be appropriate/taking technology too far if it made a person’s abilities far above that of any human known to date/much better than their own peak abilities/equal to their own peak abilities (%), an implanted device giving healthy people much improved cognitive abilities would be more or less acceptable if people could turn on and off the effects/if effects were permanent and could not be reversed (%), and implanted devices giving healthy people much improved cognitive abilities would have more benefits than downsides/more downsides than benefits/about equal benefits and downsides (%). Data were analyzed using structural equation modeling.
