Title: The Silicon Eye: Microchip Swashbucklers and the Future of High-Tech Innovation

ISBN : 0393328414
Author : George F. Gilder
Publisher : W W Norton & Co Ltd
Media : Paperback
SKU MIX6-U6-CAL6-133E-16992

 

 
Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatch from our warehouse in the UK.

From Publishers Weekly&newline;&newline;Known for weaving engrossing stories from material knotted with numbing complexity, Gilder (Telecosm; Microcosm) delves once again into the world of high-tech business, this time focusing on the company Foveon and its efforts to develop a device that will allow digital machines to see as the human eye does. &doublequote;Computers can perform instantaneous calculus... and search the entire contents of the Library of Congress in a disk-drive database,&doublequote; he writes. &doublequote;But they cannot see. Even today, recognizing a face glimpsed in a crowd across an airport lobby, two human eyes can do more image processing than all the supercomputers in the world put together.&doublequote; The book traces a circuitous path in its investigation of Foveon's &doublequote;silicon eye&doublequote;-leading through discussions of the magnetic codes on paper checks and of notebook computer touchpads-but Gilder is a competent, eloquent guide. Moreover, the journey is populated with richly limned characters like Dick Merrill, who, with &doublequote;wire-rim glasses, long white coat, electromagnetic blond hair, a bright feral glint in his skyblue eyes,&doublequote; resembles Doc Brown from the Back to the Future films, and Michelle Mahowald, who decorates her lab walls with &doublequote;artsy-dispsy posters&doublequote; and releases &doublequote;random analog beasts of prey from their safe digital cages.&doublequote; While some readers will find Foveon's saga half-fulfilled, Gilder sees its fulfillment as inevitable. &doublequote;Foveon,&doublequote; he writes, &doublequote;can do for the camera what Intel did for the computer: Reduce it to a chip and make it ubiquitous.&doublequote; Whether or not readers are believers by the end of this narrative, the ride is electric. &newline;Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.&newline;--This text refers to the &newline;&newline;Hardcover&newline;edition. &newline;&newline;From Booklist&newline;&newline;Gilder, author and knowledgeable Silicon Valley insider, tells the fascinating tale of Caltech's Carver Mead, his influences and associates. They sparked a revolution that aims to supplant the digital &doublequote;eyes&doublequote; of our cameras and high-tech phones with a silicon eye based on a human model; theirs is the first imager in cameras based on the serious study of the human retina and neural system, called the Foveon X3. The author traces the 20-year journey of Mead, his team, and their company, Foveon, as they create a new age combining the digital and biological world, aiming to make all current computers, cameras, and cell phones obsolete. They expect the Foveon device to evolve into functioning in some way both as an eye and as a brain. Gilder observes, &doublequote;Foveon will do for the camera what Intel did for the computer: Reduce it to a chip and make it ubiquitous. Dismantle it and disperse it across the network. Render it wireless, wanton, and waste-able.&doublequote; Mary Whaley&newline;Copyright American Library Association.
