    DescriptionThanks to the digital technology revolution, cameras are everywhere - PDAs, mobile phones, anywhere you can put an imaging chip and a lens. Battling to usurp the 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 an insider's knowledge of Silicon Valley and the unpredictable mix of genius, drive and luck that can turn a start-up company into a world leader. "The Silicon Eye" focuses on some of the brightest - and most colourful - people on earth and their race to transform an industry.

    Review quote
    "Proof that the spell of the Valley, after decades of booms and busts, is alive and well." Washington Post "Like Foveon's founders, Mr Gilder wants to understand vision, albeit of a different kind: the vision of innovators... The unpredictable disorder of markets is, in Microsoft parlance, not a bug but a feature. That's a lesson that Mr Gilder's book drives home." The Wall Street Journal"
