The Exponential Rate of Technology Change

Moore's Law is famous because it has held relatively true over nearly 50 years - that the number of transistors that can put put on an integrated circuit increases at a logarithmic rate (doubling about every two years). This has had an incredible impact on the speed, capacity, and price of computer-based technologies. One of the leaders in advancing technology over the decades has been Ray Kurzweil. Linked to the title is a TED association that applies these principles to the future.
