Moore’s law turns 50

50thMoore’s law turns 50 on Sunday, after it was first published in the thirty-fifth anniversary issue of Electronics magazine back in 1965.

There have been a few stories out this week about Moore’s law turning 50 and how it may not make it to 60. IEEE put out a number of stories based on different perspectives of Moore’s law’s history and implications.

Few observations have predicted a shift with this level of impact on the world around us.

Even if we can’t continue to shift the size of transistors down at the rate predicted by Moore’s law, the innovations enabled will continue to drive us forward to new ways of tackling the world around us.
