Computerworld – A high-tech pioneer reflects on the digital revolution

The man who led the design and development of the first microprocessor 40 years ago said that, at the time, he didn’t foresee the extent of the digital revolution he was helping to create.

“I’ve been surprised to see the impact the microprocessor has had on society, particularly on work,” said its designer, Frederico Faggin.

Today, Frederico Faggin envisions a future where quantum and cognitive computing are widely used, but he said there’s no way to foresee the amazing changes to the way we work and live that technological evolution will bring in another 40 years.
