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 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.
