In this video, we’ll be discussing the evolution of computing – more specifically, the evolution of the technologies that have brought upon the modern computing era.
[0:30-5:33] – Starting off we’ll look at, the origins of computing from as far back as 3000 BC with the abacus and progressing to discuss some of the first mechanical computers. After this, we’ll get to see the first signs of modern computing emerge, through the use of electromechanical relays in computers along with punched cards for data I/O.
[5:33-8:36] – Following that we’ll discuss, the 1st generation of modern computing, the vacuum tube era. The first technology that was fully digital and resembled how modern computers operate.
[8:36-10:49] – Afterwards we’ll discuss, the 2nd generation of modern computing, the transistor era. The transistor miniaturized the vacuum tube and was much more efficient in terms of speed, power consumption, heat and more. It is the core technology behind how all computers operate today.
[10:49-13:04] – To conclude we’ll discuss, the 3rd generation of modern computing, the integrated circuit era. The integrated circuit was able to pack many transistors onto a single chip and is behind the exponential growth of modern technology.
