An assertion by Gordon Moore, who cofounded Intel in 1965. Moore's Law originally states that the number of transistors we can fit on a chip (or semiconductor) will double every eighteen months (and therefore so will the potential power of our machines). He later revises it to every two years. This law is generally accepted within the high-tech industry to illustrate that computers get drastically better each year.
