The Factories of The Future

This site focuses on the science behind productive nanosystems, a nanotechnology for molecular manufacturing. It includes tutorial material, new results, annotated bibliographies and links to external web resources.
A secondary topic is secure, distributed computing, which will be (must be) central to the future of informational technology. In both these areas, several widespread assumptions are wrong.
A better understanding can benefit both technical leaders seeking productive directions for research and policy makers aiming to make better decisions.

The best brief, general description of productive nanosystems is “Revolutionizing the Future of Technology” in the “In Context, Nanotechnology” section of the AAAS EurekAlert website. The best brief, technical description is “Productive Nanosystems: the physics of molecular fabrication” [pdf, 0.6 MB], in the IOP journal Physics Education.
For a detailed technical analysis of the principles and potential implementations of advanced molecular manufacturing systems, see Nanosystems: Molecular Machinery, Manufacturing, and Computation.
