Through automation and miniaturisation, microelectronics has vast potential for thrusting society into a new phase. It promises to revolutionise the information handling aspects of our lives. But to gain maximum benefit from this breakthrough, microelectronics must be harnessed to society’s needs. To help this process a multidisciplinary group of authors has prepared a Report to the Club of Rome on the likely impact of microelectronics on our futures.
