Kim Eric Drexler
Born: April 25, 1955 in CA, USA
American engineer K. Eric Drexler is best known for his contributions to the popularization of the potential existence of molecular nanotechnology, including nanobots. Currently, nanoscience mostly consists of the researching of materials on the nanoscale with unique properties. However, Drexler hopes to establish a nanoscience that consists of robots on the nanoscale.
d. In 1986, Drexler and his former wife Christine Peterson founded the Foresight Institute, whose goal was to “ensure the beneficial implementation of nanotechnology. Foresight is accomplishing this by providing balanced, accurate and timely information to help society understand and utilize nanotechnology through public policy activities, publications, guidelines, networking events, tutorials, conferences, roadmaps and prizes.”
e. In 1992, Drexler wrote the first nanotechnology textbook, Nanosystems Molecular Machinery Manufacturing and Computation.
In 2005, Drexler joined Nanorex, a molecular software engineering company, where he now works. To visit his personal website, click here.
