3D Printing and Supply Chain - Impact on Customer Satisfaction? Afterthoughts Radical Abundance

3D Research&ItemID=11538&ResearchTitle=The Evolution of Manufacturing

A penny for my thought: An increasing complex value chain, local deliver, fast, hopefully cheap, question is, would it be tailored after individual needs (not only want) ???

...leads to the next thought: What kind of suit future men wear? The need to change and to adapt in the era of technology digital transformations, nano technology among others. Balance pros and cons

(don't forget the graphene and its risks


How does  3D printing,  atomically precise manufacturing (APM) and nano tech has any thing to do with Big Data? Here is my horizontal thinking: Operational. How human adapt to digital and tech rapid change?

The latest book Radical Abundance written by Eric Drexler advocates for the atomically precise manufacturing, He urges engineers stay with "common sense solutions to engineering problems, by crafting solutions that are both consistent and efficient in the realms of science and engineering and yield truly useful products, not prototypes destined to languish almost forgotten in the technological research centers that  conceived of them" (Amazon review)

The nature of science and engineering, and the prospects for a deep transformation in the material basis of civilization.

  •           “A personal narrative of the emergence of the molecular nanotechnology concept and the turbulent history of progress and politics that followed
  • “The quiet rise of macromolecular nanotechnologies, their power, and the rapidly advancing state of the art
  • “Incremental paths toward advanced nanotechnologies, the inherent accelerators, and the institutional challenges
  • “The technologies of radical abundance, what they are, and what they will enable
  • “Disruptive solutions for problems of economic development, energy, resource depletion, and the environment
  • “Potential pitfalls in competitive national strategies; shared interests in risk reduction and cooperative transition management
  • “Steps toward changing the conversation about the future”

Have any one heard of Data fitting with experiment? I got this from a company

  • Make an overview of XPS from measurements to Data Fitting.
  • Explore the possibilities of data treatment with CasaXPS.
  • Create an XPS data base including experimental data and their analysis

the XPS Data Fitting with CasaXPS 2011 at the Institut des Matériaux Jean Rouxel, in Nantes (2.5 days) with Neal Fairley the author of CasaXPS,  organizer of this second workshop.

Findings from a recent study about cyberinfrastructure’s impact on the field were detailed in a paper published in a special issue of the Journal of Structural Engineering, which coincides with a NEES Quake Summit 2013 hold in 7-8 August in Reno, Nevada.

A major element of the NEES cyberinfrastructure is a “project warehouse” that provides a place for researchers to upload project data, documents, papers and dissertations containing important experimental knowledge for the NEES community to access.

Hmmm! no one cares to reply! I have to dig myself for an answer to the earlier blog: Algorithmic Information Theory, is the information theory of individual objects, using computer science, and concerns itself with the relationship between computation, information, and randomness. This is in contrast to classical information theory that is based on random variables and communication, and has no bearing on information and randomness of individual objects. The major subdisciplines are Algorithmic (Kolmogorov) Complexity, Algorithmic Probability, Algorithmic Randomness, and Universal Search.

Given that 3.14 or Л (pie r) is used accross the fields i.e. math, quantum entanglement, geometry, etc...wonder if it works in big data as well, let's say relative data mining, plotting quadrants? What else goes across scientific fields? I know one more: Hype!

My attempt against our  American passion namely, is to raise conscious awareness, or cognitive ethical concept of what the trend and the competitive race of science transformation may lead humanity down the road. Eric Drexler already flag some issues but none of them is close to real life yet. It is a good idea to create  ethical monitorship structure within the industries, might it be Big Data or Manufacturing to watch over the issues( related to practical research ethics in health as an example, see,

 What are the side effects of the industry in question may create impacts to the people, the country, the underepresented far away country, in a word: human rights and corporate responsibilities in a broader sense the post-modern era.
