The Drexler-Smalley Debate on Molecular Assembly

Abstract:
Ray Kurzweil sounds off on the Eric Drexler / Richard Smalley debate on the feasibility of molecular assembly. "Nanotechnology pioneer Eric Drexler and Rice University Professor and Nobelist Richard Smalley have engaged in a crucial debate on the feasibility of molecular assembly, which is the key to the most revolutionary capabilities of nanotechnology. Although Smalley was originally inspired by Drexler's ground-breaking works and has himself become a champion of contemporary research initiatives in nanotechnology, he has also taken on the role of key critic of Drexler's primary idea of precisely guided molecular manufacturing."
