Abstract. An engineering-based methodology can answer a limited but illuminating range of questions about the potential of physical technology. This line of inquiry leads to a more specific question: What can physics tell us about the potential scope of atomically precise fabrication technologies? Today’s knowledge shows that this scope embraces productive nanotechnologies that can transform the material basis of civilization.
Purpose: Research Collaboration
SFI Host: Jerry Sabloff
The Santa Fe Institute is accepting registrations for its newest short course, Exploring Complexity in Health and Medicine, October 12-14 in Santa Fe. NEW: CME credits available.
September 21-23 in Austin, TX, an intensive SFI short course will bring participants to the forefront of innovation research.
Researchers are gathered at SFI this week to understand what drives biological "synchrony": rapid, widespread rises and falls in populations.
This week, SFI External Professor Aaron Clauset received the 2016 Erdős–Rényi Prize for Young Scientists from the Network Science Society.
In an SFI Community Lecture May 31 in Santa Fe, artist and author Lynda Barry explores what makes us want to write, draw, sing, and dance.
