Secrecy, authentication, and public key systems by Ralph C Merkle( Book )

9 editions published between 1979 and 1990 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kinematic self-replicating machines by Robert A Freitas( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a general review of the voluminous theoretical and experimental literature pertaining to physical self-replicating systems. The principal focus here is on self-replicating machine systems. Most importantly, we are concerned with kinematic self-replicating machines: systems in which actual physical objects, not mere patterns of information, undertake their own replication

The singularity( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Singularity is defined as the point in time when computer intelligence exceeds human intelligence...While we cannot be certain of what our future brings, it is nonetheless important to understand the great strides being made in fields such as nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and molecular biology, and how these technologies will radically alter the way we live, inevitably, the question arises: what kind of humans do we want to become?... The Singularity is a comprehensive and insightful documentary that examines technology's accelerating rate, and deftly addresses the resulting moral questions." -- Container

Nanotechnology by Ralph C Merkle( )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Web Feet summary: Ralph C. Merkle is a genuine nanotechnologist, a relatively rare breed these days, but not for long if we're to believe Merkle's vision for the future. Merkle works in the field and edits a journal on the subject, so he's as close as one can get to an authority on nanotechnology. His site offers a number of his own papers on the subject, covering such topics as the future outlook for nanotechnology and the science's implications for medicine. More importantly, Merkle's site offers links to the growing number of online resources available on this subject. The homepage of this site provides a good introduction for those unfamiliar with the science
Evaluators for attribute grammars : research project by Ralph C Merkle( )

Secrets of the sequence( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The first segment focuses on the latest techniques in genetic engineering or "taking a trait from one organism and dropping it into the genome of another". The second segment highlights the fight against diseases and insects attacking the bananas by using genetic techniques. The last segment examines the use of oxygen-carrying nanobots to prolong life after a patient stops breathing
Are we prepared for the nanotechnology revolution by Ralph C Merkle( )

Food fight Going bananas ; Drugs downsized( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Pt.[1]. Food fight - A fish combined with a tomato? Rice fused with a flower? Pesticides built into our potatoes? These ideas may sound like a Hollywood sci-fi movie but they aren't. It's all part of genetic engineering--taking a trait from one organism and dropping it into the genome of another. This segment will look at the latest techniques of the world's crop creators. - pt.[2]. Going bananas - It may seem an unlikely subject for gene sequencing, but the banana is more important than you think. The fourth largest food crop in the world, the banana plant is currently being ravaged by disease and insects. By sequencing its genome, scientists hope to battle back and save this beloved crop. - pt.[3]. Drugs downsized - A human hair is about a hundred microns across; a nanometer is 100-thousand times smaller. Scientists are already building tools that can manipulate matter at the nano level. We talk to researchers who want to create oxygen-carrying nanobots that, when pumped into the body, could keep you alive for an hour after you'd stopped breathing. We hear from the opposition that fears deadly unstoppable "gray goo" of artificial life spreading across the planet
