John Vincent Atanasoff is known as the father of the computer. With the help of one of his students Clifford E. Berry, in Iowa State College, during the 1940s, he created the ABC (Atanasoff-Berry Computer) that was the first electronic digital computer. John Vincent Atanasoff was born in Hamilton, New York on 4 of October 1903. Iowa State College approved a grant for $650. Atanasoff hired Clifford Berry, and they began to construct the prototype for the world's first electronic digital computer. Computing Machine for the Solution of Large Systems of Linear Algebraic Equations, by John V. Atanasoff (application for funding to Iowa State College, with photos of early ABC) Computer - 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. In fact, calculation underlies many activities that are not normally thought of as mathematical. ENIAC: First computer makes history. The ENIAC, or Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer, could churn 5,000 addition problems in one second, far faster than any device yet invented. Computer being an indispensable tool in our lives, has changed the way we think in more ways than one. Today, all you have to do to find answers is, just 'Google it'! The online world of blogging, instant messaging, chatting and social networking not only leaves virtual traces, but unites the world in a completely unimagined way. 1941: Atanasoff and his graduate student, Clifford Berry, design a computer that can solve 29 equations simultaneously.

So who invented the computer? There are many different views on which aspects of the modern computer are the most central or critical. Some people think that it's the idea of using electronics for calculating — in which case another American pioneer, Atanasoff, should be credited. Other people say it's getting a computer actually built and working. The Atanasoff-Berry Computer . ...
