Dear President Obama,

 

More than a year ago, a note was addressed to you entitled "Mr. Obama, Isn't it Time to Honor Ray Kurzweil." No need to repeat the words now that there is almost a month left of your presidency. I hope if you have not read the note about Ray Kurzweil,  please read it now (1).

 

Here I would like to also mention another American pioneer of science who deserves a medal of honor. Last week, three European scientists received the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their work in nanotechnology (2). Let's be reminded that the founder of nanotechnology- a new science created in our lifetime- is none other than the American scientist K. Eric Drexler (3).

 

Wouldn't it be the right thing to do to honor Ray Kurzweil for his pioneering work in Artificial Intelligence and Singularity, and honor K. Eric Drexler for founding the science of nanotechnology?
