I like that in the conference in 2002, the speaker thinks Moore's law can only hold on for another decade before we are unable to doubt the transistors in a circuit. It is 10 years later, and we have not only been able to do it, we now predict we can go on for another decade. It always takes some ingenious innovation that helps us continue with the exponential growth of circuits.

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
