    I wonder how many doublings Moore's law will keep happening now that we have begun Quantum Computing?



    Moore's law refers to an observation made by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore in 1965. He noticed that the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits had doubled every year since their invention.
    Moore's law predicts that this trend will continue into the foreseeable future. Although the pace has slowed, the number of transistors per square inch has since doubled approximately every 18 months. This is used as the current definition of Moore's law.

    I've been wondering when and with which company I might consider investing...

    I did a paper on something like this in my summer semester class at college and from my research I think the most likely thing that will happen is that Moore's Law will be expanded to mean something like devices will double in speed and storage capacity as opposed to the number of transistors per square inch.

    The observation made in 1965 by Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel, that the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits had doubled every year since the integrated circuit was invented. Moore predicted that this trend would continue for the foreseeable future. In subsequent years, the pace slowed down a bit, but data density has doubled approximately every 18 months, and this is the current definition of Moore's Law, which Moore himself has blessed. Most experts, including Moore himself, expect Moore's Law to hold for at least another two decades.

    I am not sure I'll ever truly be able to fathom an object being in 2 states at the same time (ala Shroedinger's Cat or the example Eric gave of a light switch being off and on at the same time). Stillin... you have an excellent observation about investing... hmmmm....

    I think the Watchtower's ability to capitalize on ancient ignorance and mythology days are number due to the information age and Moore's law were ignorance will become more willful as this technology becomes widely available even in third world countries.

    Simulating Universes may be away of using superposition to solve complex problems. Memory and speed of processing doubling every 2 years has a very powerful effect that increases exponentially in a very short time. So we need to give our children space to keep neural plasticity going keep with the changes and stay young and full of wonder and not full of repitious neuron fireing,

    Thanks for the info and the links bbw. Great stuff!
