What Comes After the Computer Chip?Former Intel CEO Craig Barrett & Michael Crow

The event planners request that you RSVP for this event at


Topic: What Comes After the Computer Chip?

Speakers: Craig Barrett, Former Intel CEO                                                    and Michael Crow, President of ASU

Join Craig Barrett and Michael Crow, as they discuss how we can keep processing speed from slowing down. Intel co-founder Gordon Moore famously wrote in 1965 about how the number of transistors on silicon chips would double roughly every 1.4years, (the square root of 2), an observation now known as Moore’s Law. But even as Intel pushes into nanotechnology, computing is now reaching the limits of that law. Experts say that once circuitry shrinks to seven nanometers, quantum effects will take over—and it won’t be possible to get any smaller with silicon chips. So computer scientists are facing the question: what will come next? No one knows, though technologists are betting on a variety of answers, from carbon-based transistors known as nanotubes, to a wonder substance called “graphene” that resembles pencil lead, to microscopic magnets that employ something called “racetrack memory.”

Followed by a wine reception. (also free)

Admission is free.

    It was wonderful! There was an overflow crowd, but they had audio and video in another room, to allow for a bigger crowd than the rated seating capacity of the main auditorium. The reception afterwards was nice -- there was only a crowd of around 2-3 layers around each major speaker (Michael Crow and Craig Barrett) -- so it was possible to get close enough to hear them. Excellent!

    Get there really, really early as there is never enough seating for events such as this at the Phx Art Museum and most likely you will end up sitting in another room looking at a tiny TV with inadequate reception/sound.

    I am doing chemo that day and I will be really worn out. I won't be doing anything that evening. I'll be very sorry to miss this

    The website and the above listed website don't mention if there is a cost for the wine reception.

      this is a Zocalo event. there's no cost for the wine reception after the talk.

      Interesting! What is a Zocalo event? (Does that mean that it is produced or sponsored by a certain organization?) Does it have anything to do with http://en.wikipedia.o...­ ? Just curious...

    Fascinating topic. I usually don't drive at night, but this may be worth going. Perhaps I can catch a member in
    Glendale that would be willing to pick me up.

      Richard Collins, I live in Glendale. I sent you a PM.

    Depending on my chemo schedule.

    Is the wine reception free?
