The power of new technologies is everywhere. They change how we live and work, sometimes with amazing speed. Social media was practically unknown a decade ago, yet today one billion people use Facebook and interact with friends, family and colleagues in an entirely new way that no one could have predicted. That’s the thing about technology: its impact is unpredictable.
Today no one knows how the mobile internet, cloud computing or advanced robotics will change our lives – or how modern gene-sequencing technology, which is advancing even faster than microelectronics, will affect the war on disease and global poverty. But one thing is certain: technologies create lasting change – and there is no going back.
One field of research that holds tremendous promise for disruptive change is nanotechnology. Today my life centers around research in nanotechnology. I, together with about 250 scientists and engineers in my company, live and breathe nanotechnology – and we have had some amazing results, which I will share with you today.
Now some of you may be asking yourselves: “Hey, isn’t this guy the founder of Indigo, a digital printing company? What’s his connection to nanotechnology?"
