|Abstract:||I will present emerging insights into the relationship between physical form and logical function: "building with logic" (error-corrected additive programmed assembly of functional systems) and "programming with math" (compiling problems posed as global goals into distributed local dynamics). Together, these provide a foundation for a digital revolution in fabrication, enabling engineering in a limit of enormous complexity. Applications will be discussed in molecular computation and manufacturing, analog logic, interdevice internetworking, conformal computing, and personal fabrication in developed and developing countries. Prof. Neil Gershenfeld is the Director of MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms. His unique laboratory investigates the relationship between the content of information and its physical representation, from molecular quantum computers to virtuosic musical instruments. Technology from his lab has been seen and used in settings including New York's Museum of Modern Art and rural Indian villages, the White House/Smithsonian Millennium celebration and automobile safety systems, the World Economic Forum and inner-city community centers, Las Vegas shows and Sami herds. He is the author of numerous technical publications, patents, and books including "Fab," "When Things Start To Think," "The Nature of Mathematical Modeling," and "The Physics of Information Technology," has been featured in media such as The New York Times, The Economist, CNN, and the McNeil/Lehrer News Hour, and has been selected as one of the top 100 public intellectuals. Dr. Gershenfeld has a BA in Physics with High Honors from Swarthmore College, a Ph.D. from Cornell University, was a Junior Fellow of the Harvard University Society of Fellows, and a member of the research staff at Bell Labs.|
