A world without armies where robots have rights and obligations

Abstract:
Inexpensive tools to read and rewrite the genetic code could allow us to manipulate biology at the level of DNA. We may be able to re-engineer existing life and even create new life forms with a specific purpose in mind. Within a decade some researchers believe that bacteria, for example, could be designed that would mass-produce drugs that currently have to be painstakingly harvested from rare plants. The fusion of nanotechnology and biology may also allow us to grow products such as solar collectors and liquid crystal displays from living material.
