Fueling Innovation We Love and Depend On

In 1965, Gordon Moore made a prediction that would set the pace for our modern digital revolution. From careful observation of an emerging trend, Moore extrapolated that computing would dramatically increase in power, and decrease in relative cost, at an exponential pace.

The insight, known as Moore’s Law, became the golden rule for the electronics industry, and a springboard for innovation. As a co-founder, Gordon paved the path for Intel to make the ever faster, smaller, more affordable transistors that drive our modern tools and toys. Even 50 years later, the lasting impact and benefits are felt in many ways.

The Road Ahead

Like a metronome of the modern world, for 50 years Gordon’s prediction has set the pace for innovation and development. This foresight laid a fertile foundation from which all modern technology could spring, including the broad rise of digitization and personal electronics.

Moving forward, Moore’s Law and related innovations are shifting toward the seamless integration of computing within our daily lives. This vision of an endlessly empowered and interconnected future brings clear challenges and benefits. Privacy and security are persistent and growing concerns. But the benefits of ever smarter, ubiquitous computing technology, learning to anticipate our needs, can keep us healthier, safer, and more productive in the long run.
