Gordon Moore, born in 1929, was one of the key men in the history of modern technology. His famous Moore's Law, formulated in 1965, predicted that the number of transistors in integrated circuits would double every 18-24 months, with a consequent decrease in costs and an increase in performance. The prediction has proven astonishingly accurate for decades, driving the evolution of the video industry semiconductors and helping to shape the digital revolution we know today. For some years, the technological slowdown has meant that the law is less valid than in the past, despite the marketing lies.

Moore has co-founded Intel in 1968, together with Robert Noyce and Andy Grove, and under his leadership, the company has become one of the leading manufacturers of microchips in the world. In 1971, Intel revolutionized the industry with the introduction of the first microprocessor, the 4004, which laid the foundations for the advent of personal computers and many other interconnected technologies, eventually powering 80% of PCs worldwide.

Today, we celebrate the life of a man whose vision changed the way we live and work, helping to shape the future of technology. In the meantime, its Intel is preparing for huge investments to return to being more competitive and more generally the American chip industry against TSMC and Samsung.
