We therefore present a general evaluation that is relevant to the current nano-science to nano-technology transition, about how the field evolves and how we adapt, which includes critique. One conclusion is that “artificial” computation is not optional.
We are witnessing an inevitable and long ongoing fusion of human and ‘artificial’ information processing, cognition evolving, including that of social structures like the scientific community […]
Increasing overpopulation and the top heavy age distribution of the human population demand radical technological adaptation if we want to prevent human suffering on an unprecedented scale.
Required adaptation to rapid environmental changes needs nanotechnological capabilities that are equivalent to biological ones in terms of rapid adaptation by efficient means to design complex nano-structures.
