This is a very good point, a2, and also a reason why it's a good idea to engage children in STEM subjects when they are young. Not every teen or child may be interested, but those that are will thrive due to their natural curiosity, as you mentioned.

I know what you mean, shehan. I see some of these young designers and I think how much they are already doing at such a young age. These are the type of people who can create world-changing technology for sure.

Many technological advancements have been happening so far and there are many openings for those who are interested in to dig deep and see what's been happening. Learning from the start with curiosity is vital. That is why many of the younger generation are learning so fast and are far ahead from the others.

@Shehan: Yes as long as it's being used in a positive manner. The problem is how well this will be managed and how well will you take control of it. Controllability is the key here.

@Shehan: Yes a valid point mate because if he does then all the areas will get exposed and there will be many copies of his work.

@Shehan: What exactly do you mean by that ? Helping mankind in the form of robots or helping mankind to live longer ?

@Shehan: Indeed and we have to remember that age is not a barrier when it comes to learning. Many things have developed and those who are interested in digging things out will explore new things.

@Elizabeth – yes he has already contributed to the engineering and healthcare segment. He could even use this technology to develop other tools to help mankind.
