Evolu Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Evolution ofComputers
  • 2. The AbacusIt was the earliestcalculating machineprobably originatedin China about3,000 years ago.In China it is alsoknown as SwanPan.
  • 3.  It is consists of a rectangular wooden frame with horizontal rods. It is consist of several columns, farthest to the right represent ‘ones’, the next one ‘tens the hundreds and so on.’
  • 4. John NapierA mathematician,developed a devicehaving a set of rodsmade of bones. In 1964, John Napierintroduced Logarithms.
  • 5. Blaise PascalHe was a FrenchMathematician born on19th June 1623 atClermont- Ferrand.He was only 19 yearsold, when he invented acalculating machine calledPascaline.
  • 6. Analog ComputerThese are fundamentallydifferent in principle from themodern digital computers.It is use in simple devices,even they are mechanicallycomplicated.
  • 7. Joseph- MarieJacquard (1752-1834)He introduced anew weaving loom in1805.The JacquardsWeaving Systemusing punched cardattracted manyscientist.
  • 8. Charles Babbage (1792-1871)He was inspired by the punched Cardto idea, developed an idea of usingpunched cards to input data.He continued his efforts and putforward an idea of a machine thatcan do 60 calculations per second.The Analytical Engine stamped thefoundation for modern computing.
  • 9. The First Programmer Ada AugustaKing (1815-1852)The daughter of LordByron, was thepersonal assistant ofCharles Babbage.
  • 10. She suggested binary datastorage and wrote the firstcomputer program for theAnalytical Engine.The ADA software was named
  • 11. George Boole (1815-1864)He was self taughtEnglish Mathematician.His theory of Booleanlogic became fundamentalto the design of computercircuitry.
  • 12. Dr. Herman HollerithHe developed punched cardsystem for storing and retrievingdata.He also built the tabulatingmachine to read the cards andprocessing data.
  • 13. He started Tabulated MachinesCompanies in 1896.In 1911 , this company becamethe Computing TabulatingRecording Company and now theInternational Business machines,simply IBM.
  • 14. Digital EraClaude ShannonHe suggested 1’s and 0’s ofbinary systems can beconsidered ‘ON’ and OFFposition of the flow of current.
  • 15. Dr. John VincentAtanasoffHe built the first electroniccomputer named AtanasoffBerry Computer.
  • 16. J. Presper Eckert andJohn W illiam MauchyThey developed generalpurpose computer, ElectronicNumerical Integrator andCalculator (ENIAC).This computer has 1800 valvesconsuming 100 kilowatts ofpower and weighed several tons.
  • 17. John Von NeumanHe introduced an idea ofentering the program ofinstructions into themachines for its proceduresas the numerical data isentered.
  • 18. Admiral Grace HopperShe developed this idea and itwas designed and built byMauchy and Eckert. The firstcommercial electronic digitalcomputer capable of usingstored programs was calledUniversal Automatic Calculator(UNIVAC).
  • 19. TransistorsIn 1947, computers entereda second generation by theintroduction of transistors.It was developed by theAmerican physicist WilliamShockley.
