Are Advancements in Computing Over? The Future of Moore’s Law
From our smart phones to our broadband networks to the advanced electronics in our cars, we owe them all to “Moore’s Law.” Named after Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, the term refers to a prediction made in the 1960s that computing power would double every two years. And miraculously it has: computing power is over 1.1 million times faster today than it was 40 years ago. Without this, our digital era would be stillborn.
However, it’s not clear that past progress will continue, at least at the same exponential rate. Some even argue that
