The most importa上海楼凤女神会所nt technology for the region’s growth was, of course, the semico
nductor. William Shockley, who had been one of the inventors of the en Noyce lost a power st
ruggle to become CEO. He took Gordon Moore and founded a company that they called Integrated Electronics
Corporation, which they soon smartly abbreviated to Intel. Their third employe
e was Andrew Grove, who later would grow the company by shifting its focus from memory
chips to microprocessors. Within a few years there would be more than fifty companies in the area making semiconductors.
The exponential growth of this industry was correlated with the phenomenon famously discovered by Moore, who in 1965 drew a gra
ph of the speed of integrated circuits, based on the number of transistors that could be placed on a chip, and
showed that it doubled about every two years, a trajectory that could be
expected to continue. This was reaffirmed in 1971, when Intel was able to etch a complete central
processing unit onto one chip, the Intel 4004, which was dubbed a “microprocessor.” Moore’s Law has held generally tru
e to this day, and its reliable projection of performance to price allowed two generations of young
technologies that it enables, are harnessed for the benefit of mankind while minimizing the risks to develo
pment, peace and security and human rights,” Guterres said in a congratulatory letter to the expo.
Miao Wei, minister of industry and information technology, said China has already made signif
icant progress in bolstering the big data industry with a string of big data platforms established in sec
tors such as manufacturing, commerce, finance, transportation and medical care.
“We will make a fresh push to integrate cutting-edge information technologies into the real econo
my, including establishing a national industrial data center, to better power the country’s sp
rawling manufacturing sector,” Miao said at the opening ceremony of the big data expo.
According to the ministry, China’s digital economy reached a total volu
me of over 31 trillion yuan ($4.5 trillion), or 34.8 percent of its GDP, in 2018.
thanks to measures to stimulate innovation, optimize the business environmen
t and public services, and to strengthen opening-up and cooperation in the digital sector.
“China’s high-tech industries, represented by new technologies, new industr
ies, and new products, have maintained rapid growth in recent months,” she said.
According to the commission, output in the high-tech manufacturing sector rose 8.7 percent ye
ar-on-year from January to April, 2.5 percentage points higher than that of industrial output. High-tech ma
nufacturing output was responsible for 13.6 percent of industrial output, 1 percentage point higher year-on-year.
