The BBC recently featured a three-part series on "Visions of the Future". The first of the three, "The Intelligence Revolution", discusses the present and future of information technology: computers, networks, simulations, robotics and biological integration. The second, "The Biotech Revolution", discusses the emerging power of biological technology: genetics, life extension, cloning, enhancement and evolutionary control. And the third, "The Quantum Revolution", discusses advances in miniaturization technology: metamaterials, molecular assemblers, and related topics. Michio Kaku hosts the series.
The first two parts of the series, now available on Google video, are embedded in this post.
The third part should be available soon, at the following URL:
