Gordon Moore, head of Intel in the mid 1960s observed that
the size of each transistor on an integrated circuit chip is reduced by 50 percent
every 24 months. The result is the exponential growth of computing power over time.
Moore’s law doubles the number of components on a chip as well as the speed of
each component. Both these aspects double the power of computing, for an effective
quadrupling of computer power every two years.
extrapolated back in time and discovered a generalisation of this law holds even as
far back as 1900. He extrapolated it forward and discovered we can expect a computer
with the processing power of a human brain around the year 2030 in a computer costing
