Tribute to Lois Lenski
The landscape of the plains from Oklahoma and north Texas in the south up to Nebraska.
Nanotechnology, artificial intelligence and genetic editing will merge to form a new synthetic technology platform, producing hoards of nanobots, each no larger than a dust particle but with emergent intelligence. Like swarms of insects, these will work in a networked matrix, remotely controlled like a drone until they begin to act as autonomous agents. They can be inhaled and they can penetrate buildings.
