Evolution of Computing

Computer

The computer is a machine capable of processing information, performing mathematical calculations automatically and extremely quickly.

History

Since ancient times, civilizations needed to use some method to perform calculations. In the beginning, the 10 fingers of the hands were used, for this reason our default is the decimal (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9). It was also from this that the term digit appeared, as the fingers of the hands were used.

However, as time went by, there was a need to create more advanced methods for performing calculations.

When I ask older people about who invented the computer, many say "Bill Gates", but as we know, getting to the modern computers we have today was a long journey through history with several characters who contributed to the field of science .
