We’re Entering the Age of Living Machines says Susan Hockfield, President Emerita of MIT and Leading Voice in the STEM World

We’re entering the Age of Living Machines: the seamless convergence of biology and tech. This, says Susan Hockfield, President Emerita of MIT and leading voice in the STEM world, is the biggest tech story of our time. In talks (as in her new book The Age of Living Machines), she tells it, outlining the incredible technologies being developed right now, and exploring the ways that they’ll change the world. 

“Hockfield does a superb job of sharing the excitement and challenges associated with scientific investigation,” says Publishers Weekly of her upcoming book, calling it a “data-driven yet accessibly written exploration of potential technological advances stemming from the merging of biology and technology.” 

 

In the video below, Hockfield tells the compelling and optimistic story of technology in the 21st century.
