Nanorobotics & Nanotechnology | Big Changes in Small Science Explained Nanorobotics is the technology of creating machines or robots at or close to the scale of a nanometer – 1 billionth of a meter. More specifically, nanorobotics refers to the still largely theoretical nanotechnology engineering discipline of designing and building nanorobots. These aren’t the fictional […]
As the Jobs Reset Summit 2020 comes to a close, what is the call to action for individuals, organizations and governments to accelerate progress on growth, jobs, skills and equity and reset the social contract? Speakers: Panagiotis Madamopoulos-Moraris, Parvathi Santhosh-Kumar, Leticia Gasca Serrano, Olajumoke Adekeye, Saadia Zahidi, Klaus Schwab The World Economic Forum is the […]
We talk about Nanobots, incredibly tiny robots that have been in popular culture for a long time and are slowly beginning to come into mainstream technological field now. With the ability to print the actuators for Nanobots that are compatible with industrial production, a new frontier has been reached.
Building robots at the micron scale is tricky, particularly when it comes to designing small-scale ‘actuators’ – the motors that allow robots to move. Conventional actuators don’t work at such a small scale, and new actuators that do work use mechanisms like magnetism and are difficult to integrate with traditional silicon based micro-electronics. Now a […]
Since it made its entry on to the world stage, COVID-19 has torn up the existing script of how to govern countries, live with others, and take part in the global economy in a dramatic way. Professor Schwab and CEO and Founder of the Monthly Barometer Thierry Malleret explore these disruptions in their new book, […]
“The Great Reset” will be the theme of a unique twin summit to be convened by the World Economic Forum in January 2021. In-person and virtual dialogues will address the need for a more fair, sustainable and resilient future, and a new social contract centred on human dignity, social justice and where societal progress does […]

The arms of the robot are move when the operator ‘imagines’ his own hand movements.
Dr. Geordie Rose, founder of D-Wave – the world’s first quantum computing company, and Kindred – the world’s first robotics company, returns to ideacity to share his theory of understanding minds and how that is applied to AI, with the understanding that “every thought that a human has ever thought resides inside our mind.“ This […]
