Fathers Of The Computer
Fathers Of The Computer – Everyone and I mean everyone has a computer or a laptop. You can’t live without them. They are essential for school, college, university, work and even for personal use. There have been several fathers of the computer and they all have had their own part to play in making the computer what it is today.
Out of all the fathers of the computer. Charles Babbage is considered to be the main father of computing after his incredible invention of the Analytical engine. This was in 1837. His invention contained and ALU (Arithmetic Logic Unit), basic flow control and integrated memory. This was known as the first computer concept. The first computer ever invented was in 1822 which doesn’t resemble what most people would call a computer today.
Where does the word computer even come from? Do you know? It was recorded in 1613 and was used to describe a person who performed computations or calculations. This was the basic definition of computer until the end of the 19th century. After this point the word computer was more associated with a machine whose primary purpose is calculation rather than a human.
The computer as we know it today dates back to Alan Turing. The fundamental concept of computers was proposed by Alan Turing. The concept was a device that printed symbols on paper tape in a manner that imitated a person following a series is logical instructions. Without this concept, computer wouldn’t be what they are today.
There was also a first electrical programmable computer. It was called the Colossus. Developed by Tommy Flowers and first revealed in December 1943. It was used to help the British code breakers read encrypted German messages. There are loads more computers and fathers of the computer to learn about.
