Centre for the Study of Existential Risk

Many scientists are concerned that developments in human technology may soon pose new, extinction-level risks to our species as a whole. Such dangers have been suggested from progress in AI, from developments in biotechnology and artificial life, from nanotechnology, and from possible extreme effects of anthropogenic climate change. The seriousness of these risks is difficult to assess, but that in itself seems a cause for concern, given how much is at stake.

The Next Crisis: Unregulated, Untested Nanotechnology breakthroughs could pose threat to environment, food and your health

The Next Crisis: Unregulated, Untested Nanotechnology breakthroughs could pose threat to environment, food and your health | nanotechnology 10.1 | Scoop.it

November 20, 2012 - Kansas City Star

Fast-developing know-how makes our khakis resist stains, artificial bones more practical and diesel burn more efficiently.That nanotechnology builds microscopic wonders inhabiting a man-made universe that smothers stink and mops up pollution by working on a scale that makes a dust mite look gargantuan.

Research, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences earlier this year, raises fresh worries about nanotechnology. Some critics say it’s becoming quickly integrated into the modern economy and the world environment faster than scientists can sort out its potential dangers.“We need to put together a model where we’re thinking this through before we get to a point that we can’t undo it,” said Patty Lovera, an assistant director of the consumer advocacy group Food & Water Watch.

Nanotechnology T-Shirt to replace batteries? Towards wearable energy storage

Nanotechnology T-Shirt to replace batteries? Towards wearable energy storage | nanotechnology 10.1 | Scoop.it

If current research is an indicator, wearable electronics will go far beyond just very small electronic devices or wearable, flexible computers. Not only will these devices be embedded in textile substrates but an electronics device or system could ultimately become the fabric itself. Electronic textiles (e-textiles) will allow the design and production of a new generation of garments with distributed sensors and electronic functions. Such e-textiles will have the revolutionary ability to sense, act, store, emit, and move – think biomedical monitoring functions or new man-machine interfaces – while ideally leveraging an existing low-cost textile manufacturing infrastructure.
All these wearable and potentially textile-embedded electronic gadgets will require power; and it wouldn't make sense to have to plug your sleek flexible sleeve display into a bulky lithium-ion battery brick. Researchers are therefore pushing the development of wearable energy storage. Especially supercapacitors with a cable-type architecture could lead to flexible energy storage devices that can remove traditional restriction and achieve a subversive technology that could open up a path for design innovation.
Researchers have now demonstrated that flexible cotton threads can be used as a platform to fabricate a cable-type supercapacitor.

Wat is nanotechnologie?

 

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanotechnologie

 

Nanotechnologie is de techniek die het mogelijk maakt te werken met deeltjes in de grootteorde van nanometers (afkorting nm, een miljardste van een meter).

Dit is een schaal van grootte die net boven die van atomen (0,060 nm tot 0,275 nm) en eenvoudige moleculen ligt. Een criterium is dat een structuur in op zijn minst één dimensie minder dan 100 nanometer groot is. Veelgebruikte toepassingen van nanotechnologie zijn de emulsie van kleine deeltjes ('nanodeeltjes') titaniumoxide in verf- en vernissoorten, deeltjes in zonnebrandcreme, cosmetica, koolstof ingeckotape (sterk plakband, principe bewezen, in ontwikkeling)[1][2], zilver in voedselverpakking, kleding, verband, desinfectiemiddelen en huishoudapparatuur en cerium als katalysator bij verbranding.

De grote opslagcapactiteit van computergeheugens is tevens een toepassing van nanotechnologie. Een probleem van nanotechnologie is de onbekende giftigheid van de nieuwe producten.

Nanotechnology may be key to solar energy and energy storage

Nanotechnology may be key to solar energy and energy storage | nanotechnology 10.1 | Scoop.it

A new study from the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI has found that nanotechnology will bring significant benefits to the energy sector, especially to energy storage and solar energy. Improved materials efficiency and reduced manufacturing costs are just two of the real economic benefits that nanotechnology already brings these fields and that’s only the beginning. Battery storage capacity could be extended, solar cells could be produced cheaper, and the lifetime of solar cells or batteries for electric cars could be increased, all thanks to continued development of nanotechnology.

Brèche radicale ! Nos autos seront-elles plus légères ? 

Alexandra Minks's curator insight, March 21, 2015 2:28 AM

As nanotechnology continues to grow, the amount of pre-existing technologies that can be improved by it increases significantly. As described in this article, the use of nanotechnology could result in drastic changes to the way energy is stored and used. It could provide extended battery life as well as larger storage capacities, making it incredibly useful in the ever-expanding technological world.

The dangers of nanotechnology, a warning to consumers - Public Service Europe

The dangers of nanotechnology, a warning to consumers - Public Service Europe | nanotechnology 10.1 | Scoop.it

Everyday products from clothes to children's toys can contain nanomaterials. Nanotechnologies use materials on an incredibly small scale - one nanometer is 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. However, what distinguishes materials at the nanoscale is not their exceptional size but the different physical and chemical properties they acquire as a consequence. Although there is potential benefit to consumers, nanomaterials can also pose new threats to human health and the environment.

Researchers Create 3D Microchip Using Nanotechnology

Researchers Create 3D Microchip Using Nanotechnology | nanotechnology 10.1 | Scoop.it

Scientists from the University of Cambridge have created, for the first time, a new type of microchip which allows information to travel in three dimensions. Currently, microchips can only pass digital information in a very limited way - from either left to right or front to back.
Researchers believe that in the future a 3D microchip would enable additional storage capacity on chips by allowing information to be spread across several layers instead of being compacted into one layer, as is currently the case.

Sworoba OyetKep's curator insight, March 18, 2013 1:47 AM

Written for a scholarly audience, the article provides groundbreaking news on the sucess of the scientists from the University of Cambridge. They were able to create a microchip that is capable of transmitting information in 3 dimensions. This has never been done before which is a first of its kind. 

The major limitation of the article is that it only discusses the process in which the mircochip was created, although this is useful information the author should've given a futher indepth information on the microchip's next phase and future applications. In saying that they article should've gathered a greater amount of references to support its findings.

Jessica Wilds's curator insight, March 22, 2013 1:36 AM

This article talks about how the University of Campridge was able to make a microchip that can transmit information in three directions using nanotechnology.
