The History of Computing

The History of Computing

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.

    The music is so fit to the topic of this video



  2. hisham 3018 on October 15, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    Too fast bro ! Also the monotone is a problem too



  3. Kiwi China on October 15, 2019 at 3:22 pm

    Bro slow down



  4. swisskristin12 on October 15, 2019 at 3:23 pm

    If the narrator practiced enunciating syllables and speaking with fluency, this would be highly watchable. Very informative nonetheless.



  5. flagship1701e on October 15, 2019 at 3:23 pm

    Really great video. You are a good teacher, but your monotone fast speech makes it hard to follow along and harder to commit to memory, Try using a bit of excitement and inflection in your verbal presentation. Your channel will get TONS of subscribers if you make the presentation more easy to listen to. Great, excellent content though.

    Leibnitz is pronounced LIPE-nitz. The Leib- rhymes with pipe.

    3:57 "capable of computing anything that is computable" noooo seriously i how wonderful and extraordinary is that !! It’s like I’m capable of eating anythinggg that is eatable 🤣 .. no but really nice video i just laughed a lot at that point



  9. Hans Popo on October 15, 2019 at 3:28 pm

    Great Video man



  10. John Lott on October 15, 2019 at 3:31 pm

    hey what the fuck – you didnt mention Robert Noyce and integrated circuits! what the fuck?! Fuck jack-off kilby!



  11. Deadpan Devastation on October 15, 2019 at 3:35 pm

    Add placement is painful 😖

    For 5000 years people have been working at a future in which internet porn exists. I salute these heroes.



  13. Varuna on October 15, 2019 at 3:39 pm

    You left out Shockley.
    Why?

    We owe a lot to Grace Hopper, don’t we?

    This has helped me understand this better thank u



  21. omgkennyisliving on October 15, 2019 at 3:45 pm

    great video! hope you’ll get more attention – got my sub already



  22. Vasilij Vasiljev on October 15, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    Forgot russian inventors of first computer( as we understand it today) in city of Omsk, Russia. And other grear russian engineers who made all this happen. Well anglo-saxons and japanees just stolen



  23. Vasilij Vasiljev on October 15, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    And as you read comments below. The credit that authors of this video gave to some of the people they mentioned had been exaggerated.



  24. Ajinkya Mahajan on October 15, 2019 at 3:48 pm

    Great



  25. Vasilij Vasiljev on October 15, 2019 at 3:49 pm

    In 1968 , soviet engineer-electromechanic Arsenij Anatolievich Gorohov invented a machine wich was called a " Device to task a program to reproduce a contour of a component". Thats how it was named in authors sertificate, patent Nr 383005 on may 18th of the year 1968. Inventor himself called it a "Programable device intellector". The Intellector had a monitor, stand-alone system block with hard disk drive , a device for solving autonomous problems and personal dialogue with computer, motherboard, memory, GPU and other , excluding computer mouse.



  26. Alan Gauthier on October 15, 2019 at 3:50 pm

    Your speech rate is too fast. But otherwise an excellent video! Well done sir!



  27. SalluTheGamer __ on October 15, 2019 at 3:50 pm

    👍👍



  28. Jessica Hogan on October 15, 2019 at 3:52 pm

    Why did you leave out the Jaquard loom? The jaquard loom, which used punch cards, inspired Babbage to make his machines.



  29. Korpen on October 15, 2019 at 3:53 pm

    Sweet video! Was utterly surprised when i clicked out of fullscreen and saw the amount of views, likes and subsrcribers. Keep it up man i’ll spread the word!



  30. Irin Pilgrim on October 15, 2019 at 3:53 pm

    0.75 speed is better.



  31. pratik1213 on October 15, 2019 at 3:54 pm

    toomuch base in thhe sound….



  32. Milan Mladenovic on October 15, 2019 at 3:54 pm

    I watched this video 3 times, and I am amazed every time. Good choice of music!



  33. Saulius Adomaitis on October 15, 2019 at 3:54 pm

    if you ever go back in time to 1950. don’t tell them you got 128 Gb smartphone in your pocket, you will be locked as crazy person

    Moore’s law: what if the industry didn’t see it as a prediction, but as a rule? There are competitors, and new chips will require high investments… What if the captains of industry together made agreements about growth and risk reduction? That puts Moore’s law in a new light … Could it be that intentionally too small steps have been taken to generate more sales?



  37. PrimiusLovin on October 15, 2019 at 4:05 pm

    Nice, but how do you find those historical videos in decent quality?!



  38. Peter Harket on October 15, 2019 at 4:07 pm

    Great channel! Keep up the good work.



  39. CardWay on October 15, 2019 at 4:08 pm

    Keep up the fabulous work, buddy!!



  40. CrossLab on October 15, 2019 at 4:09 pm

    For those of you thinking the narrator’s speaking too fast, you can slow the video down. I find 0.75 helps.

    Other than that and the sort of monotone voice you had with a little too much bass, the content is excellent. Well done!



  41. Stash on October 15, 2019 at 4:09 pm

    Nice video, Had to watch on .75 speed 🙂



  42. Ryan QIAN on October 15, 2019 at 4:09 pm

    why do you talk a bit like a robot?
    no offense



  43. Vasilij Vasiljev on October 15, 2019 at 4:09 pm

    The inventor never got money from the goverment. The scheme of this invention was published in 1970 in "The ballot of inventions, descoveries and trademarks" , making it accessible to everyone. In 1975 in the USA american businessman Edvard Roberts relieses "Altair 8800" based on Intels microprocessor "Intel 8800" reliesed in 1974. In 1976 Steve Voznyak ant Steve Jobs compile "Altair 8800" in garage and call it "Apple I" for a price of 666.66$ – first personal computer wich excluded metal case, monitor and keyboard. Two years later these parts were included and it was called "Apple II".



  44. Jacques van Eck on October 15, 2019 at 4:11 pm

    keep it up, the youngsters of today need to know where there processing power started that is in their devices today!



  45. Vasilij Vasiljev on October 15, 2019 at 4:11 pm

    The first personal computer was invented by regular russian constructor Arsenij Anatolievich Gorohov in Omsk NII of Aviation Technologies in 1968.



  46. Vasilij Vasiljev on October 15, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    In 1951 soviet computer "Whirlwind" was the first to output data on the screen. It had 512 bites of memory. And it was as high as two-story building.



  47. Jonathan Yeshwanth on October 15, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    Great content and well organised…but i felt you could improve on your delivery of the information.. Not being critical here but it sounded too monotonous like a male version of Siri that speaks real fast. Other than that youre really good. Your content shows how well youve understood it and hats off to that. Not many people run through history so well 🙂 Cheers



  48. Cody James on October 15, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    how does a transistor actually make a calculation?



  49. MP on October 15, 2019 at 4:13 pm

    A 5-ton device to store 5MB for $27K/month? Where do I sign up?!?



  50. S Smith on October 15, 2019 at 4:16 pm

    Nice film, good work, thank you !
