Living with the Genie

Living With the Genie: Essays on Technology and the Quest for Human Mastery gives a "reasonably balanced view of the promise and risks of a variety of technologies," says reviewer Michael A. Goldman in the Jan. 30, 2004 issue of Science magazine. The new book from Island Press focuses mainly on GNR (genetic engineering, nanotechnology, and robotics). In one essay, Ray Kurzweil predicts that biotechnology and nanotechnology will combine to produce self-replicating entities and says controlling such nanobots will require a kind of programmed obsolescence or other prescribed limits on what they need to reproduce themselves.
