The first generation
the first generation of computer was created in 1822 by Charles Babbage.
In -, Charles Babbage conceptualized and began developing the difference engine, considered to be the first automatic computing machine. The Difference Engine was capable of computing several sets of numbers and making hard copies of the results.
In 1837 he proposed the first general mechanical computer, the Analytical Engine.
the second generation of computers
transistors replaced vacuum tubes and were the second generation of computers. The transistor was invented in 1947. The transistor was much better and more advanced than the vacuum tube, allowing computers to become smaller, faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient and more reliable than their first-generation. Though the transistor still generated a great deal of heat that subjected the computer to damage, it was a vast improvement over the vacuum tube. Second-generation computers still relied on punched cards for input and printouts for output.
These were also the first computers that stored their instructions in their memory, which moved from a magnetic drum to magnetic core technology.
The first computers of this generation were developed for the atomic energy industry.
third generation of computer
The development of the integrated circuit was the hallmark of the third generation of computers. Transistors were miniaturized and placed on sillcon chips, called semiconducters, which drastically increased the speed and efficiency of computers.
Instead of punched cards and printouts, users interacted with third generation computers through keyboards and monitors and interfaced with an operating system, which allowed the device to run many different applicators at one time with a central program that monitored the memory. Computers for the first time became accessible to a mass audience because they were smaller and cheaper than their predecessors.
the fourth generation of computors
Alan Mathison Turing
Professor Sir Timothy John Berners-Lee, was born on June the 8th, 1955 in london.
