K. Eric Drexler on the future of nanotechnology
"K. Eric Drexler of Oxford University discusses his latest book Radical Abundance: How a Revolution in Nanotechnology Will Change Civilization. Drexler, who has been referred to as “the founding father of nanotechnology” covers how society can conserve resources and make more efficient products through nanotechnology; how nanotechnology can solve some of the world’s most pressing problems; how this varies from what you’ve seen in science fiction; and, how we can improve manufacturing at the molecular level."
