Human IngenuityHistory Of Computers By: Amena BegumMr. Ochs pd. 8/9
Timeline of computers In 1937 Alan Turing's Turing machine made the idea of machines that could complete tasks by having programs. In 1938, Konrad Zuse built the first binary digital relay computer. In 1943 saw the first general-purpose digital computer, ENIAC. In 1948 the Manchester Baby became the first stored program computer. In 1955 MIT built the first real-time processing machine. In 1956, IBM created the disk memory system. Then the integrated circuit chip. In 1959 IBM introduced the first desktop machines. Then in 1965 Digital Equipment Corporation's had the first microcomputer.First to come up with idea of computersIn the year 1837, Charles Babbage was the first to think about something that would function like a computer and ended up designing a programmable mechanical computer that he called "The Analytical Engine"
Why have computers been invented?Computers have been invented to make life easierFind information that we dont know about and not have the information eradicated from their minds. Get faster results Part of technology that helps us with most of the things in our life
First company to have computers1949, The first computer company, Electronic Controls Company is founded by J. Presper Eckert and John Mauchly
How big were the first computersThey were as big as houses or bigger. Had many parts Were put in factories or larger buildings to be able to fit it somewhereVery hard to use
How fast were the processorsThe processors were very slowPeople thought of new inventionsTried to make processing faster which is how modern computers process faster
Comparison of old computers and modern computers. Modern computers are portable, not big, process faster, has more apps, easier to useOld computers were just the opposite of modern computers
When were the computers released to the publicThe first public computer was released in August 12, 1981.
First computer madeThe Analytical Engine - but this didnt work Z machines - but this wasnt an actual computer Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer - this was considered the first computer Pictures of computers through various times
