[Recorded Feb 4, 2009] Today, many American teenagers enjoy a life enriched by an almost pervasive level of technology. Teens live surrounded by laptop computers, gaming systems, cell phones, and DVD and MP3 music players. All of these technologies have been made possible through increasingly smaller, cheaper and more powerful microprocessors often developed and sold by Intel.
In this lecture, Professor Richard Tedlow targets his talk at teenagers to explain a part of the microprocessor technology revolution that surrounds and enables their lifestyles. To tell the story of microprocessors, Professor Tedlow focuses on Intel and its long-time chief executive, Andy Grove. Andy Grove's life story is in many ways a story of determined success from his escape from communist Hungary as a teenager to his rise at Intel to become CEO. Andy Grove is a distinctive personality whose life has been guided by his ability to overcome obstacles, work on a team, take calculated risks and seeks to make a positive difference. Professor Tedlow challenges the students in the audience to think about the course they will chart in their own lives by using Andy Grove's life as an example.
Educators are welcome to use this lecture in their classrooms.
