Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance: by M. C. Roco, W. S. Bainbridge (auth.), Mihail C. Roco,

By M. C. Roco, W. S. Bainbridge (auth.), Mihail C. Roco, William Sims Bainbridge (eds.)

M. C. Roco and W.S. Bainbridge within the early many years of the twenty first century, centred efforts can unify technological know-how in keeping with the cohesion of nature, thereby advancing the mix of nanotechnology, biotechnology, details know-how, and new applied sciences dependent in cognitive technology. With right recognition to moral matters and societal wishes, converging in human talents, societal applied sciences may in achieving an incredible development results, the nation's productiveness, and the standard of existence. this can be a vast, move­ slicing, rising and well timed chance of curiosity to participants, society and humanity within the long-term. The word "convergent applied sciences" refers back to the synergistic mix of 4 significant "NBIC" (nano-bio-info-cogno) provinces of technological know-how and know-how, each one of that is presently progressing at a speedy cost: (a) nanoscience and nanotechnology; (b) biotechnology and biomedicine, together with genetic engineering; (c) details expertise, together with complex computing and communications; (d) cognitive technology, together with cognitive neuroscience. well timed and huge chance. Convergence of various applied sciences relies on fabric team spirit on the nanoscale and on expertise integration from that scale.

My background as the head of Hewlett-Packard's office here in Washington, before that with an IT association, and then on the Hill , and before that with Dick Cheney at the Pentagon, implies that I am supposed to know something about moving the gears of government toward positive policy outcomes. With that in mind, I now have the privilege of overseeing the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Office of Technology Policy, and the National Technical Information Service that I am sure many of you periodically go to for information, as well as the National Medal of Technology.
