BIOGRAPHY

Gordon Moore was bornon 3 January 1929 in San Francisco, United States, is Cofounder and Chairman Emeritus, Intel. Gordon Moore is #183 in List Billionaires People In The World. Gordon Moore, a pioneer of Silicon Valley, cofounded Intel in 1968. Moore is famous for his prediction that computer processing power would double every year, an insight known as "Moore's Law." He and his wife launched the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation in 2000. It has over $6 billion in assets. The foundation's funds support environmental conservation, patient care, scientific research and projects in the San Francisco Bay Area.
