transformation at many scales and in many disciplines. For example, researchers
are trying to wed polymers to silicon – a marriage of opposites, because plastics
are chaotic chains while silicon consists of orderly crystals. The resulting
electronic devices would have marvelous flexibility, be less expensive to make,
and, therefore, empower more people. Again, it comes to managing order and
disorder, all at once.
(5;…) Cognition. The dictionary defines cognition as “the mental process or
facility by which knowledge is acquired”. Because of new knowledge, methods,
and tools, I believe we are on the verge of a cognitive revolution. We are poised
for many exciting new discoveries in this area. These breakthroughs will lay the
foundation for progress in many areas of national importance, from teaching
children how to read to understanding learning processes, from building human-
like computers and robots to designing networks and systems capable of
cognition.
(6;…) Holism. According to the dictionary, again, holism is “the concept
that any entity is greater than merely the sum of its parts”. It refers to new
capabilities to put things together – how to integrate seemingly disparate things
into a greater whole. This includes social as well as physical and virtual
engineering systems.
(7;…) All told, progress in these areas will lay out the capacity for an
integrated design field far beyond what is imaginable with today’s technology.
Taken together, this means that 21st century engineers will need to be astute
makers, trusted innovators, agents of change, master integrators, enterprise
enablers, technology stewards and knowledge handlers. They will need to
embrace complex systems and reach the right decisions about how huge
amounts of time, money, people, knowledge and technology are tasked to a
common end.
B. Fill in the gaps with an appropriate word from the list
Spinning motion, conductors, commonsense, nonaccelerating, spontaneously,
incidence, reverse, interference, charge, ferromagnetic.
