The Future of Nanotechnology by Ashlin Burton

Understanding Nanotechnology • A nanometer is one billionth of a meter – 100,000 thinner than a human hair

New Phase Space of Material Materials change and can be controlled – Periodic table projects into a new dimension – Materials change color depending on size

History & Momentum • • • • First Recorded Mention in 1959 Imaging at the Atomic Level is Uncovered in 1981 1988 Stanford University-Nanotechnology Engineering Course 2000 US establishes National Nanotechnology Initiative

The Power & Potential • • • • Unprecedented Production Capacity Advance Electronics, Aerospace, and Medicine Low-cost Solar Electric Power Systems Transition to a Zero Net Carbon Economy

A Business Driven Revolution • Global Race • Positives Trump Negatives • Unsustainable Global Consumption • Education & Awareness Campaigns

Risk • • • • Loss of Control or Containment Diminished Human Purpose AI Unpredictability God’s Anger

Difficulty & Threats to Progress • • • • Societal Fear & Ignorance Radical Extremists Disrupted Industries Existing Infrastructure

Nanotechnology a Faustian Bargain? • • • • Merging of Human and Machine Unnatural Extension of the Human Lifespan What is wrong with playing God? Is it the Human Quest for a Better Life or a Better Profit?

The Resistance

The Revolution
