Intel co-founder Gordon Moore has died at the age of 94. Famous for conceiving what became known as Moore’s Law, which predicted that the number of transistors on a semiconductor would double each year, Moore’s observation became something of a standard that was followed by the tech industry as a whole.
Cutting-edge semiconductor microchips, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, biomedicine, and ultrafast internet are among the areas been singled out for special focus as China lays out its 14th Five-Year Plan.
This year, the theme for International Women’s Day (8 March 2021), “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”, celebrates the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world. IWD is celebrated in China and Asia as much as in other parts of the world, and for us at Techworks Asia, we celebrate IWC 2021 by recognising that there are many examples of Asia women leading the way in tech industries.
