Millennium Project praises increasing global connectedness

Abstract:
The authors were upbeat about the application of the artefacts of digital technology to biology. "Just as lines of code were written to create software to do amazing things, genetic code may be written to create life to do even more amazing things, such as producing hydrogen fuel instead of oxygen from photosynthesis. Artificial organs may be constructed by depositing living cells, layer by layer, using dot-matrix printers in a manner similar to 3-D prototyping.

"Future synergies among nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science can dramatically improve the human condition by increasing the availability of food, energy and water, and by connecting people and information everywhere. The effect will be to increase collective intelligence and to create value and efficiency while lowering costs. The factors accelerating all these changes are themselves accelerating, which will make the past 25 years seem slow compared with the next 25," they said.
