Silicon Eye by George F. Gilder

Book Description

Thanks to the digital technology revolution, cameras are everywhere-PDAs, phones, anywhere you can put an imaging chip and a lens. Battling to usurp this two-billion-dollar market is a Silicon Valley company, Foveon, whose technology not only produces a superior image but also may become the eye in artificially intelligent machines. Behind Foveon are two legendary figures who made the personal computer possible: Carver Mead of Caltech, one of the founding fathers of information technology, and Federico Faggin, inventor of the CPU-the chip that runs every computer. George Gilder has covered the wizards of high tech for twenty-five years and has an insider's knowledge of Silicon Valley and the unpredictable mix of genius, drive, and luck that can turn a startup into a Fortune 500 company. The Silicon Eye is a rollicking narrative of some of the smartest-and most colorful-people on earth and their race to transform an entire industry.

Books By Author George F. Gilder

Life After Television by George F. Gilder Life After Television, Paperback (October 1994)

"In Life After Television, George Gilder imagines a world in which the boob tube has given way to the living room telecomputer... Mr. Gilder's case is galvanic, at times even intoxicating." -Jim Holt, Wall Street Journal

Men and Marriage by George F. Gilder Men and Marriage, Paperback (December 1992)

Examines the loss of the family and the well-defined sex roles it used to offer, and how this loss has changed the focus of our society. The author claims that men only own up to their paternal obligations when women lead them to do so, and that this civilising influence is an important part of maintaining a productive, healthy, loving society.
