Progress in atomically precise manufacturing could fundamentally change humanity’s relationship with the material world, with resulting revolutions in manufacturing, medicine, healthcare, and the environment. Dr. Eric Drexler is a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Oxford Martin School and in this lecture he gives an overview current advances in the field atomically precise manufacturing and the prospects for future progress.
In his talk, Drexler references the 2015 US Department of Energy Advanced Manufacturing Office a workshop on Integrated Nanosystems for Atomically Precise Manufacturing.
Dr. Eric Drexler’s talk if followed by Dr Sonia Trigueros, who is the co-Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Nanotechnology, and Oxford Martin Senior Fellow. Her research focuses on the design of a novel nanoscale drug delivery systems for targeting dividing cells, specifically cancer cells.
