Self-Replication

 

"Molecular assemblers" have been confused with self-replicating machines. The nanoscale size of a typical science fiction universal molecular assembler requires an extremely large number of such devices in order to produce a practical quantity of a desired product. However, if one were able to construct a single such molecular assembler then it might be programmed to self-replicate, constructing many copies of itself, allowing an exponential rate of production. Then after sufficient quantities of the molecular assemblers were available, they would then be re-programmed for production of the desired product. However, if self-replication of molecular assemblers were not restrained then it might lead to competition with naturally occurring organisms. This has been called ecophagy or the grey goo problem

More accurately labeled "exponential replication," self-replication refers to the process of growth or replication involving doubling within a given period. [ZY] Examp[le: create one assembler. Program it to create another, and program that one likewise, etcetera, until you have a speficied amount [which is the important part -- how to make them STOP].

The act of objects making copies of themselves - similar to biological reproduction except that self-replicating objects should make exact copies of themselves.
