'MAD SCIENTISTS' is the term many would use to describe the R & D work being done by big tech corporations like Google, with huge profits from internet presence.
2020 Canada introduced a document on 'Biodigital Convergence' which is analysed by Corbet Report. Throughout it details a time when biotech is in everything for the Internet of Things.

2021 UK gov introduced a document on 'Human Augmentation - The Dawn of a New Paradigm a strategic implications project' which echoes the Biodigital Convergence issues. Presented as defence planning with German coorperation, we are looking at robotic armies and cyber space. There will be plenty of room for error when AI is making real time war decisions!
PCR TESTING PROFITS
We see more and more bio-tech companies like Helix promoting 'clinico-genomic' data: they are inseprable from big-data and big-tech providers.
Helix offers Covid Testing. A new source of profit. PCR tests have been discredited due to 97% false positives: (countries using 30 - 45 cycle process), which its inventor Kary Mullis said was not suitable for detection. Still we see big-bio-tech cashing in on this 'demand' led by governments and now employers, and airlines as we move towards more restrictions without testing.
The DNA is an amplification test and not meant to be used to indicate infection. The side effect of his experimental testing was to duplicate the signal. He was looking for something else.
