Transcript of The Computer
By MAC and SHELBY
The computer has been a marvelous invention since it's conception in the early 1800's. The computer ha changed the world in many ways and have upgraded throughout the years since then and now.
The computer was a device that can be programmed to solve arithmetic or logical problems automatically.
The very first computer was invented by a British mechanical engineer and polymath named Charles Babbage.. He is considered to be known as the “Father of the computer.” He invented the first computer in the 19th century. In Babbage’s first time of inventing the first computer, there was a high error rate in calculating the math tables.
New idea of typing
Method of Babbage
Babbage planned to find a new method by making it mechanically, removing the error. He hired a man named Joseph Clement to oversee construction of the engine. Every part was formed by hand using custom machines which Babbage himself designed.
Babbage invented the difference engine to compile mathematical tables. His idea was to make a better machine, not just one mathematical task, but any kind of calculation.
