All things we see are made up of atoms.
The study of, and the ability to control, those atoms and molecules is through the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The scale of things on the nano scale are smaller than the width of a human hair.Nanotechnology has been used in various fields such as computer science and engineering, physics, chemistry and biology.Flexible electronics and wearable electronics are among the many growing fields that owe their existence to nanotechnology. Graphene is a nano material that is a conductive sheet of very thin, but very strong carbon. It is transparent, but is also very lightweight. Graphene is one of the most promising nano materials available to scientists today.The second portion of this video covers Quantum Computing. A quantum computer is an extremely fast computer. The processing power of a quantum computer is far greater than that of classical computers. Computers read information that are coded in bits, which are represented by 0’s and 1’s. A classical computer can process only one bit at a time, either a 0 or a 1. A Quantum computer, has quantum bits, or qbits, and a qbit can be a 0 and 1 at the same time. The next portion of the video covers cyborg anthropology and the evaporation of the interface. If you use a cell phone or manipulate a computer or tablet, you would be considered a low tech cyborg. A cyborg is an organism that has had certain outside components added to it in order for that organism to be able to fit in to its environment. The next step in the evolution of humans as cyborgs would be the evaporation of the interface. Soon it will be possible to do away with our need to interface with technology, because the technology will be able to sense our needs and react accordingly, without the need to push a button, or manipulate the device in any way. Similarly to the way that primitive tools enhanced humans ability to hunt, and an automobile enhanced our ability to move and travel faster without wasting our energy, the microprocessor is enhancing human cognitive capacity.
