The objective of fusing molecular electronics and artificial intelligence is not an easy task. This is nearly impossible to step an inch without significant support from multi-disciplinary experts. However, the concept of such unique fusing is not welknown in the scientific community. Therefore, I thought that if nobody come forward let it be me. Surprisingly, I got many people with me who jumped with the idea of such an attempt. Result is our recent meet in orlando in the 2008 summer.




For the first time AI experts and materials scientists came together in a single platform so that they could explore the possibilities of fusion.


It was essential since last couple of years, universal computing using cellular automation is on the rise and several possible ways to execute universal computing in the 2 D array of cells have been investigated.


How to realise these concepts in practice? The goals are known but not the roads reaching the goal. In our session we had two artificial intelligence scientists. Rudolf Freund and Tetsuya Asai, both were from completely different perspectives.

In this invited session that I organised, we had people covering every aspects of our 3 D nano brain. I did not tell anybody, how their presence in harmony create the music of consciousness.


To feel this music read the architecture of our nano brain in the IJNMC paper, and compare with what invited speakers talked about in apparently random topics, you would soon see the harmony I mentioned.


Personally, I enjoyed high quality talks and of-course a very high quality discussion in the previous day. We had good discussions with two theoreticians presented at the session, Artem Masunov and Ranjit Pati.

We do not believe that we would change everything in a day. However, there is no harm in trying, putting the first step, gather necessary threshold energy and prepare for the next.


The understanding from this meet has been that there are couple of materials which could prove potential in AI applications, specially Yanlin Song, Jonathan Hill, Makoto Fujita presented hot materials. Measurement that could be useful for such studies are Hyoyoung Lee and Daisuke Fujitas nanoscale architectures. We had several works on multilevel molecular switches e.g. Y wakayama, me, Prof Lee, Prof. Song etc.




On the 29th morning we all met in the conference location, conference started on 30th morning. We had a chat and nice introduction with each other and outside the Rosen Center hotel, Orlando, USA, there was a lobstar Kitchen. We placed our order, and food did not arive at the moment picture is taken. Detect who are not smiling and assign them as 0, others 1, found anything??? Let me know.
