Converging Technologies

The rapid development of nanotechnology and its convergence with biological, information, and cognitive sciences is creating a context in which complex systems concepts that enable effective organizations to meet complex challenges can be realized through technological implementation. At the same time, complex systems concepts and methods can describe the framework in which this convergence is taking place. From the fine-scale control of systems based upon nanotechnology to understanding the system properties of the integrated socio-technical system consisting of human beings and computer information networks, the synergy of complex systems theory and converging technologies is apparent as soon as we consider the transition between components and functions.
