Americans Will Soon Need A Visa For Europe
Starting in early 2024, American tourists will face new travel rules in Europe as the European Union introduces the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS). This system, not a traditional visa, mandates online application and pre-approval for travelers from visa-free countries, including the US. The process, costing €7 ($8), involves an online form covering biographical data, travel history, and security inquiries. Approval usually takes an hour, but may extend up to 96 hours. Once granted, the authorization remains valid for three years or until passport expiration. ETIAS aims to bolster border security, mirroring the US Electronic System for Travel Authorization.

AI Could Make Us Work More (Find Out How
In a recent study by researchers at the University of Manchester, the widely held belief that artificial intelligence (AI) will simplify tasks and potentially eliminate certain jobs has been challenged. The study focused on the impact of automated processes in science laboratories, particularly in the field of synthetic biology. While the aim of automation is to enhance efficiency and allow scientists to focus on more valuable work, the study found that introducing automation can actually lead to increased complexity. Automated platforms expanded the range of tasks researchers must undertake, including managing hypotheses and experiments, as well as training and supervising robots. These often overlooked tasks, while essential, aren't as recognized in the scientific community. The study suggests that similar dynamics might apply to other domains, highlighting the need to reconsider how we measure productivity and ensure that technology truly enhances human capabilities.
