Computers Chipped

Peter Day asks if Moore's law has set a trap for the industry at the heart of the way the computer business works.
COMPUTERS CHIPPED

For 40 years, computer chips have doubled in speed and power every two years, following Gordon Moore's famous roadmap for the industry.

But keeping up the pace of improvement is getting more difficult.

Peter Day asks if Moore's law has set a trap for the industry at the heart of the way business works.

About the programme
 
We try to make ear-grabbing programmes about the whole world of work, public and private, from vast corporations to modest volunteers.

In Business is all about change. New ways of work and new technologies are challenging most of the assumptions by which organisations have been run for the last 100 years. We try to report on ideas coming over the horizon, just before they start being talked about. We hope it is an exhilarating ride.
