Time and technology
Abstract:In 1965, Gordon Moore, co-founder of the giant computer chip manufacturer Intel, observed that the number of transistors on computer chips, and hence computer processing power, had doubled every 18 months for the previous five years. He predicted that this would continue into the future, and it has. The number of transistors on a chip has risen in the 40 years since his eureka moment from 2,300 to 55 million.
