Week 4 Assignment My Innovation – The Computer Submitted By: Beleta Jackson A Technology that was inevitable
The intended audience and commercialization The intended audience was originally professionals, but today the computer is for everyone. The production and packaging market, because of the need and desire today is easily obtained and not as costly as in previous years.
The need that gave rise to the computer, actually began with the thinking about computers after the development of the bomb. This birth of the computer was credited to three major persons of interest, Richard Feynman, Stanislaw Ulam, and John Von Neumann who actually built the machine in 1945. Because this innovation was inevitable, there was no problem manufacturing the machine. It was also Neumann who put together all the theory to build the computer before the atomic bomb was dropped. These three smart people were brought together by way of Barricelles Universe, House of machines, at Trinity Manhattan for this particular project. (George Dyson, 2003)
In the development process, many problems existed. Coding was a major issue, but the team carried on and worked right through it. Each cathode ray tube had to be focused singularly. Input and output was done by teletype tape. In 1954 the first digital bit map display was created, called the graphic beam turn. (George Dyson, 2003)
The research included Thomas Hobbes in 1651 who explained “ Arithmetic and logic are the same thing, and if you want to do artificial thinking and artificial logic, you need additional and subtraction.” (George Dyson, 2003) Following this analysis, Leibniz (1679) and showed that you didn’t even need subtraction; you could do the whole thing with addition. (George Dyson, 2003)
The copy of the architect shut down in 1958. There are over four million machines being built every day. Suggestions for the starting of numeric evolution processes intended to evolve symbioorganisms, capable of developing a language of their own. Here we have the binary arithmetic that drove the computer revolution. (George Dyson, 2003)
