About 50 engineers and other interested people attended an Emerging Technologies Forum titled “The Next Industrial Revolution: Molecular Nanotechnology and Manufacturing” in Baltimore last week.
Speakers included Scott Mize, president of the Foresight Nanotech Institute, Dr. Joseph Jacobson from the Center for Bits and Atoms at MIT, Kevin Lyons of the National Science Foundation, Dr. Dennis Swyt of the NIST, and Dr. Richard Colton from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory.
This forum was the second in a series intended to educate the manufacturing sector about what they can expect from advanced nanotechnology. CRN applauds SME for being forward-looking and helping to prepare their membership for the next industrial revolution [PPT].
