5 Generations of Computer

  • Fist Generation Fist Generation

    Vacuum Tubes:The first computers used vacuum tubes for circuitry and magnetic drums for Memory, and were often enormous, taking up entire rooms.
  • Second Generation

    Transitors: Second-generation computers moved from cryptic binary machine language to symbolic, or assembly languages, which allowed programmers to specify instructions in words.
  • Third Generation

    Integrated Circuits:
    Computers through keyboards and monitors and interfaced with an operation system.
  • Fourth Generation

    Microprocess: As thousands of integrated circuits were built onto a single silicon chip.
  • Fifth Generation

    Artificial Intelligence:
    Are still in development, though there are some applications, such as voice recognition that are being used today.
