This film asks scientists from Harvard, Princeton and Duke University to imagine the future of science and technology and the scientific enterprise as a whole. We wanted to know where they thought the world was headed. Not in three, or five years, but in thirty, or fifty years. No one knows what the world will be like in 2050, because we haven’t built that world yet. And scientists and engineers won’t build it alone. The more powerful science becomes, the more important it is for society to change their relationship with science and engage in the conversation about what we value in this world.
- Nanotechnologies—and their costs, utility, risks, and benefits—are closely interconnected with society and with our values.
