Measuring the future
Q: Are there any roadblocks to what you can measure and what you can't?
Sullivan: Will there be laws and technical hurdles to face? Yes. Are we even close to insurmountable barriers? I think the answer is no. When you go into life science, we're only beginning to understand cell biology. Some people talk about molecular computing. From my perspective, we just have infinite choices. Agilent Labs just introduced the first measurement of micro-RNA, which was only invented five years ago. These structures are in the 10- to 15-nanometer range. I think you're going to see discovery in the chemical, physical and life science worlds.
