On the Eve of the Nano Era
Information technology, cognitive science, biotechnology, environmental science, aerospace technology -- all will have significant impacts on society over the next two decades. Each will provide bridges to progress, and some will raise concerns about safety.
But the most difficult challenges likely will result from exponential general-purpose molecular manufacturing, made possible by advanced nanotechnology. This could have far-ranging environmental, economic, military, ethical, legal, and social implications.
