The article New Nanotechnology Analysis: Tiny Tech Brings Huge Changes said

The Center for Responsible Nanotechnology (CRN) today announced its first series of new research papers in which industry experts predict profound impacts of nanotechnology on society. Eleven original essays by members of CRN’s Global Task Force appear in the latest issue of the journal Nanotechnology Perceptions, published today. From military and security issues to human enhancement, artificial intelligence, and more, these papers give readers a peek under the lid of Pandora’s box to see what the future might hold…
Nanotechnology Perceptions is a peer-reviewed academic journal of the Collegium Basilea in Basel, Switzerland. “We jumped at the chance to publish the CRN Task Force essays”, said Jeremy Ramsden, editor-in-chief of the journal. “To us, these papers represent world-class thinking about some of the most important challenges that human society will ever face.”

Jeremy J. Ramsden, Ph.D. is Professor of Nanotechnology, Advanced Materials, at Cranfield University, UK. He founded the MEMOCS research consortium uniting a dozen European academic research groups and industrial firms working in the field of integrated-optical membrane-based sensors for medical and environmental applications. He is currently Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Biological Physics and Chemistry (JBPC) and of Nanotechnology Perceptions.
Jeremy’s research interests include the structure and dynamics of biological thin films and information-theoretical characterization of the proteome. He has published over 100 research articles in international journals, and has chaired several international conferences devoted to biomolecular interactions. His publications include An Introduction to Bioinformatics (Computational Biology), Biochemical Mechanisms of Detoxification in Higher Plants : Basis of Phytoremediation, Nanotechnology in Paper Production, and Protein-based integrated optical switching and modulation in Applied Physics Letters, and Genome resource utilization during prokaryotic development in The FASEB Journal.
He studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, and earned his PhD from the Institute of Chemical Physics, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne for work on the electronic properties of small semiconductor aggregates. He completed his postdoctoral studies in spectroscopic investigations of protein dynamics at Princeton University, and at the Biocentre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Szeged.
Jeremy recently authored Biomedical Surfaces (Engineering in Medicine & Biology) and coedited Complexity and Security (NATO Science for Peace and Series).
