The Fundamentals of Nanotechnology Tutorial, sponsored by Foresight Institute, is designed for individuals who want a quick grasp or refresher of the basics. Four top nanotech speakers will give in-depth briefings on nanotech, and answer your individual questions on the science and technology, the long-term goals and near-term opportunities of the Next Industrial Revolution.
Steve Jurvetson, Draper Fisher Jurvetson
No one is better positioned than Steve to survey the world of nanotechnology work today and what is most exciting in terms of near-term products. He'll tell us what areas are most promising and give examples of companies whose technologies are so compelling that his firm has bet on their success. Also, Steve will outline his views on pathways to long-term Molecular Manufacturing and where the Next Industrial Revolution will hit first.
Prof. Ralph Merkle, Georgia Tech
Molecular nanotechnology (MNT) is expected to have applications in every area of physical technology: medicine, computing, clean manufacturing, environmental restoration, transportation, energy, and of course, national security. Ralph will survey the prospects for MNT and examine the R&D pathway from here to full MNT.
David I. Lackner, Program Manager: Nanotechnology Ventures, NASA Ames Research Center
Whether your organization is big, small, or an "Army of One", you need to understand the nanotechnology investment decision process within large organizations, how to participate, and how to profit from the result. Much of today's spending is by government organizations and large corporations — how can smaller entities add value, and/or license the intellectual property (IP) generated?
Christine Peterson, Foresight Institute
Christine will survey the evolution of the field, the many flavors of modern nanotechnology, and the prospects for molecular manufacturing. Only a combined historical, political, and technical perspective can make sense of developments in the field today.
