I will describe the revolution in electronics that has fueled the remarkable progress in technology over the past 50 years by moving to ever smaller transistors. This trend has led us to the nanoscale, where we now build devices that operate on the scale of molecules. Biology has been building machines at that scale for billions of years. We are now living in the early stages of a revolution in our understanding of life, enabled by tools and technology from the electronics revolution. The convergence of these two revolutions, will lead to remarkable advances over the next 50 years.
