In 1965 Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel, predicted that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit would double every two years. This is the basis of Moore’s law, and it’s why we currently have pocket-sized devices that are more powerful than 1980s supercomputers that took up entire rooms.
