comes to predicting the future, Moore's Law has been a time-worn
bell-weather. But did you know its just one of several competing laws
with names like Sinclair-Klepper-Cohen's, Goddard's and Wright's Law?
Recently researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
compared the accuracy of each competing law in both its short- and
long-term predictions. MIT claims their findings will improve the
accuracy of future predictions about technological change, candidate
technologies and policies for global change.
