From New Scientist:

Each chip consists of a clear silicone chamber that houses a sample of cells for testing and a reusable electronic strip. The electronic strip can be printed onto flexible sheets of polyester using a regular inkjet printer and conductive nanoparticle ink. Users can download different designs for the strip, which let it test for different things. The whole printing process takes just 20 minutes.

The most obvious use for this technology is to provide lab services to remote areas at low cost. However why not use it in the middle of the city instead of sending off to a conventional lab, waiting days for the result and spending much more money?

Why not use this in the dental office. We could check for perio pathogens and diabetes and much more once we have a quick and inexpensive system.

Apple is preparing to do battle with “Right to Repair” legislation in Nebraska, but there’s more than just phones at stake.

Not dental but worth a read. It seems that if we buy a product we should be able to service it. How is it a vendor can choose to “brick” a device we supposedly own making it useless?

RobCResearch shows that software robots will soon automate 80% of repetitive tasks currently being done by people and increase productivity by freeing up humans to use their brains.

Source: Artificial intelligence will increase productivity by sharpening human mind

The linked article takes a very positive approach to the coming disruptions of AI. Economists have estimated that the typical office worker’s productivity has increased 84% due to digital technology. I am generally a big fan of tech and AI however there is a negative side that no one wants to address.

What will happen to all the workers who lose their jobs because of automation? What jobs will be left for people of the future?

I am enough of an optimist to believe that eventually the future will all be much better than the present. However we are still faced with some very distressing times.

February 16, 2017

From  Ars Technica: Technical support scams are the bottom of the barrel for cyber-crime. Using well-worn social engineering techniques that generally only work on the least sophisticated computer users, these bootleg call-center operations use a collection of commercially available tools to either convince their victims to pay exorbitant fees for “security software” or extort them to gain […]
