The development of computers has followed difference steps in the technology used and these steps of technological differences are called as generations first generation (1945-1960): the first generation of computer were those computers which use vacuum tubes or valves technology. Computer - history of computing: a computer might be described with deceptive simplicity as an apparatus that performs routine calculations automatically such a definition would owe its deceptiveness to a naive and narrow view of calculation as a strictly mathematical process. A computer is a device that can be instructed to carry out sequences of arithmetic or logical operations automatically via computer programmingmodern computers have the ability to follow generalized sets of operations, called programs. Computer science and engineering - history of computer hardware and software development - arthur tatnall ©encyclopedia of life support systems (eolss) (pc) ten years later changed all this until today almost every business, and many homes. Computer fundamentals/2 information in another form is presented by the computer after performing a process on it this information is the output information or output data.
The computers we see today, were not always the same by computers, i mean anything that is able or helpful in computing early computers were mechanical calculators, punching machines etc. The development of the integrated circuit was the hallmark of the third generation of computers transistors were miniaturized and placed on silicon chips, called semiconductors, which drastically increased the speed and efficiency of computers. The atlas computer was a joint development between the university of manchester, ferranti, and plessey, and was first installed at manchester university and officially commissioned in 1962 as one of the world's first supercomputers - considered to be the most powerful computer in the world at that time. The five generations of computers the history of computer development is often referred to in reference to the different generations of computing deviceseach generation of computer is characterized by a major technological development that fundamentally changed the way computers operate, resulting in increasingly smaller, cheaper, more powerful and more efficient and reliable devices.

The mobile technology boom in recent years has revolutionized the industry and opened the doors to a new generation of gamers with the computer reportedly winning of american history. The evolution of digital computing is often divided into generations each generation is characterized by dramatic improvements over the previous generation in the technology used to build computers, the internal organization of computer systems, and programming languages. Amd: evolution of an innovator: timeline-based history focusing on the contributions of amd to the development of microprocessors and other important computer technology, and the shared history of the amd company with intel.
Perhaps one of the most significant differences between earlier generations of computers and today's powerful machines is related to processor speed the central processing unit, or cpu, has been an integral part of computing technology since the earliest days of computer development. The history of computer development is often referred to in reference to the different generations of computing devices each generation of computer is characterized by a major technological. This new generation of devices took advantage of several technological breakthroughs--including processor miniaturization, flash memory, high-speed wi-fi wireless internet and 3g mobile data networks--to put the power of the personal computer in the purse and pocket. What drives the development in ai in present time is the demand that all new gadgets have to be smart, adaptive, responsive, intuitiv, and so on it puts a serious strain on the developers to come up with a solution.
Generations of computers has been divided into five according to the development of technologies used to fabricate the processors, memories and i/o units i generation : 1945 - 55.
