Beginning of the actual computer set up by a British mathematics professor, Charles Babbage (1791-1871). In 1812, Babbage noticed a natural conformity between mechanical machines and mathematics. Babbage’s first attempt to address this problem emerged in 1822 when he proposed a machine to perform the calculation of the equation differensil. The machine is called Differential Engine.
“>program and could perform calculations and print the results automatically.
After working with Differential Engine for ten years, Babbage started making general-purpose computer first, called the Analytical Engine. Babbage’s assistant, Augusta Ada King (1815-1842) has an important role in the manufacture of this machine. He helped revise the plan, seek funding from the British government, and communicate the specifications Anlytical Engine to the public. In 1980, the US Defense Department named a programming language ADA name as a tribute to him. In 1889, Herman Hollerith (1860-1929) also apply the principles of perforated cards to perform calculations. In the next period, several engineers made other new discoveries. Vannevar Bush (1890-1974) created a calculator to solve differential equations in 1931. The machine could solve complex differential equations that had been considered complicated by academics. The machine is very large and heavy as hundreds of teeth and the shaft is required to perform the calculation. In 1903, John V. Atanasoff and Clifford Berry tried to make a computer that uses Boolean algebra in electrical circuits. This approach is based on the work of George Boole (1815-1864) in the form of a binary system of algebra, which states that any mathematical equation can be expressed as true or false.
