Converging Technologies: Health and Food
Clement Bezold   Dec 28, 2014   STIP IdeaLab  

This is one of a series of interviews with scientists working at the convergence of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science. Participants discuss their definition of technological convergence, how this might affect various scientific fields and what obstacles must be addressed to reach convergence’s full potential. In this video, Clement Bezold of the Institute for Alternative Futures discusses technological convergence.

This work is part of the international study, “Societal Convergence for Human Progress,” sponsored by the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Defense and U.S. Department of Agriculture.
