Today man stand proud with the invention of computers and have been maximizing its usage wherever possible and sometimes even misusing or abusing it. Have you ever pondered upon how computer came into existence? It could not have just pop out of nowhere, can it? What actually is a Computer? When was it invented?
Apart from these Charles Babbage has invented many more such as cowcatcher, dynamometer, standard railroad gauge, uniform postal rates, occulting lights for lighthouses and Greenwich Time signals. These inventions are evident that Babbage was the root for many mechanical and electrical devices that we use today. In this paper I would like to look at some of important inventions that he delivered to us. It is important to look at some biography information of father of computer before discuss his achievements. Charles Babbage was born in December 26, 1791 in London is known for his contribution to the basic design of computer.
The credit for this invention is shady because Mauchly reportedly visited John Atanasoff before building the ENIAC. Atanasoff built the Atanasoff/Berry Computer in the early 1940s at Iowa State University. But, von Neumann’s name is the most well-known and thus settles the issue! The model von Neumann came up with for the basic computer structure is still today, with modifications for speed and size, his computer is still the foundation for many computers. Part of the the reason his work was seen in high standards was hs reports on his work.
I want to enlighten the world as to just how far the computer has come alone and how important the technology that a computer provides will be in the future. As a society we have come a long way in the advancement of computers. From an idea to reality, the transformation from calculating machine, languages understood by computers and now computers in our cell phones. All of these advancements in computers shows just great people can be when they put their minds to it. Charles Babbage “is considered to be the great-grandfather of the computer”.
The invention helps out people by making their lives more manageable and more convenient. Alexander is an honored scientist and his work will always go down in history. have done this if it wasn’t for Alexander’s invention of the telephone. Alexander won the Hughes Medal, because he recognized how human voices and music notes work, and how he could modify them to create an invention that would involve those two things. Alexander won the Albert Medal, because he Invented the telephone, which help tremendously in the science
Not only did his architecture pave the way for our personal computers, but the foundation of his technological discovery is based in the majority of embedded systems, such as cars, smart TVs, and even smart homes. Although he is not the only one who made an impact on our world of computers, he is by far the one who had the greatest impact by allowing us the freedom to focus on making computers more efficient and agile. The computers of today are less error prone and do not require the manual setup that they did back before von Neumann created his architecture. His model allows many of us to enjoy computers for tasks other than computation. We can focus on designing, developing, and creating amazing things through a machine that utilizes his foundation.
Leonardo Da Vinci bridged a gap between unscientific methods and our own trusty modern approach (Renissance Man). Da Vinci’s experiments in science has encouraged individuals science his time to further research (Renissance Man). In 1505, he became more involved with his scientific investigations (Renissance Man). Topics ranged from varieties: anatomy zoology, botany, geology, optics, aerodynamics and hydrodynamics with many others (Renissance Man). He was greatly influenced by the ancient Greek and Roman writings, but recognized the limitations of seeking the truth in those writings or the bible (Renissance Man).
In the PBS special several people came together to marvel in the great works of Charles Darwin and the scientific advancements that have really put his theory to the test. Many things have come about since Darwin proposed his ideas that both challenged and strengthened his ideas. Things like DNA and scientific technologies. Even though Darwin got the ball rolling for the theory of evolution he really did not fully grasp everything. He didn’t know exactly how it all worked mechanically.
He has changed the world of technology and has helped contribute to making things easier with electronics. Many people have said so many good things about Steve Jobs before and after his death. Bill Gates of Microsoft, who was a long rival with Steve Jobs, said: “The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come” (Reuters). Steve Wozniak, who founded Apple along with Steve Jobs said: “Steve Jobs ‘role was defined – you 've got to learn to be an executive in every division of the company so you can be the world 's most important person someday.” (Reuters). Steve Jobs was a smart man and CEO.
Dolly was cloned from an adult sheep in Scotland. Dolly was the beginning of the experimentation of cloning full mammals. We now clone many mice and claves all cloned from adult cells that still now fascinate many scientists. However, the idea of cloning and cloning has been done before; however, now that a full mammal that was cloned from an adult cell was successful, it triggered the idea of possibly cloning a full human. There were many experiments done with the idea of cloning and the questioning of the replication process when cells divide; experiments were done as early as 1888.
