In 1965 Gordon Moore – co-founder of the microchip manufacturer Intel – first made the prediction that subsequently bore his name. Moore observed that the density of components on integrated circuits had tended to double every year, and predicted that this would continue for at least the next decade. Ten years later Moore revised-down his estimate to a doubling every two years. Because of a broad correlation between the two, Moore’s Law as it came to be known is usually stated in terms of increasing computer processing power. It is the most famous law of computing; almost everybody who works with technology has encountered it in one form or another. Nevertheless the ramifications of that prediction are unfolding today.
