REPORT: Age of Converging Science and Technology
Nov 10, 2014

Topic:Age of Converging Science and Technology
Speaker:Professor Jung-Il Jin(陈政一)

Inviter: Prof. Myongsoo Lee

The 21st century is called the Age of Converging Science & Technology or the Age of Converging Culture. This lecture provides the significance of converging science & technology, its historical background, and the way how this new cultural trend is influencing the science community. Since the USA NSF and DOC published the report, ‘Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance’ (ed. Roco and Bainbridge) in 2002, many countries are adopting policies and educational changes to encompass this idea of innovation. The USA strategy puts the highest priority in converging NBIC (nano, bio, information, and cogno) sciences. Many scientists today believe that converged technologies will be in the vanguard in the 21st century.
