Discovery leads to innovation. Innovation usually leads to changes in processes. But that doesn’t always equate to better. Or not necessarily as a replacement.
You may have seen a commercial or two for a commercial product where a walking and talking white box depicts the ease and comfort for checking for colorectal cancer at home.
