Intel co-founder Gordon Moore has died at the age of 94. He is also the author of “Moore’s law” (“the number of transistors placed on crystalline integrated circuits is doubled by coincidences of 24 months”).
He “died peacefully on March 24 surrounded by family at his home in Hawaii,” the company said. In 1957, he became one of the founders of Fairchild Semiconductor, the world’s first company to create a single integrated circuit suitable for increasing production.
While it never aspired to be the epitome, vision of Gordon and his life’s work, what has happened is to introduce phenomenal innovations and technological developments that add up to our daily lives.

Apple CEO Tim Cook too from replied to this sad news:
The world of a lost giant in the form of Gordon Moore, one of the founding fathers of Silicon Valley and a true visionary who helped pave the way for the technological revolution. All of us who are behind him are indebted to him. May he rest in peace.
— Tim Cook
To date, Forbes estimates the entrepreneur’s fortune at $7.2 billion. At the end of 2022, Moore was ranked 214 among the richest people on the planet with a fortune of $9.5 billion. [The Verge]
