With engineering, I view this year's failure as next year's opportunity to try it again. Failures are not something to be avoided. You want to have them happen as quickly as you can so you can make progress rapidly.
It is extremely unlikely that anyone coming out of school with a technical degree will go into one area and stay there. Today's students have to look forward to the excitement of probably having three or four careers.
I wasn't throwing down a gauntlet, I was trying to change the customer's mind. A lot of these things would have happened anyhow,
I remember the difficulty we had in the beginning replacing magnetic cores in memories and eventually we had both cost and performance advantages. But it wasn't at all clear in the beginning.
In 1975 I changed my doubling every one year to every two years. The most complicated devices were CCD memories and they could line up right next to each other so there was no white space left nowhere to add more functions.
I had no idea this was going to be an accurate prediction, but amazingly enough instead of 10 years doubling, we got nine over the 10 years, but still followed pretty well along the curve,
The technology at the leading edge changes so rapidly that you have to keep current after you get out of school. I think probably the most important thing is having good fundamentals.
I never had any idea that the article was going to be so precise,
I really appreciate what they're doing. They found the wealth and they're giving something back, too.
Intel got full control of microprocessor back.
We like the Jonah Field name because we work in the Jonah Field and spend a lot of time in it.
The rate of species loss and habitat destruction demands immediate attention. Collaboration is critical, and we expect CI to continue to build strong alliances and maintain its commitment to solid science and innovative thinking.
