It is time to enter a world where an entire desktop computer can fit into a pair of sunglasses. Enter a
world where we can build robots that are no bigger then a grain of sand. The uses of microelectronic
devices like these are limitless. Imagine tiny medical robots swimming through your blood stream
figuring out exactly why you’re sick. Imagine sitting in a crammed theatre while surfing the web with
your sunglasses. To understand a world with these amazing devices, we must first put ourselves in the
world of molecular electronics.
Artificial Intelligence has been a pipe dream for decades, and seems to be the holy grail of modern
software engineering. Since the individual components of a molecular electronic system are so small,
the density of devices will begin to rival the human brain, potentially enabling scientists to have
supercomputers small enough and fast enough for artificial intelligence.
