In 1965, Gordon Moore predicted that the number of components in integrated circuits would grow exponentially. The impact of Moore’s Law is all around us, in the myriad of gadgets, computers, and networks that power modern life. But the winning streak can’t last forever. The value of Moore’s Law is already on the wane. To keep making computers better and better, researchers are turning to new technologies, including circuits modeled on the human brain, carbon nanotube computers, and processors that make do with approximate rather than exact answers. Join Rachel Courtland, IEEE Spectrum, along with leaders in this new space, to discuss the end of Moore’s Law and what will replace it.
