Map of New Technologies and Nanotechnology

Please find enclosed a report from Greenpeace Environmental Trust surveying the 'emerging' technologies of nanotechnology , artificial intelligence and robotics. The report was commissioned from Imperial College, London. It integrates technological assessment with identification of the leaders in development and commercialisation efforts, and flags up genuine concerns, as distinct from hype.

Greenpeace has looked particularly at nanotechnology. We conclude the following:

Nanotechnology is the first major new technology to potentially impact society since GMOs became controversial. This leads to insights about new technologies that can also be applied specifically to nanotechnology:
