IEET Managing Director S. Umbrello on Designing a Nano-Safe Future




October 28, 2018

Nanotechnologies are fast becoming one of the most ubiquitous of the emerging technologies to have a commercial and economic impact. Along with artificial intelligence systems and biotechnologies, nanotechnology is a billion-dollar global industry that has massive product implications.

Made famous by K. Eric Drexler, Molecular Manufacturing (also known as atomically precise manufacturing (APM), molecular engineering or productive molecular nanosystems) is an emerging manufacturing technology that has the potential to shift current economic, societal, and cultural norms radically. As the name implies, molecular manufacturing is the name given to a manufacturing technology that is capable of constructing objects from the molecule up. This atomic level of control will allow for an unprecedented scale of accuracy and tolerance in products manufactured.
