    In 1961, people could share a single computer, using terminals (also known as teleprinters) to log in over phone lines. These timesharing computers were like central hubs with spokes radiating to individual users.

    1965 - AI and Desktop Computer
    In 1963, two events happened.
    The first one, led by Stanford professors created DENDRAL, the first Artificial Intelligence (AI). It was designed to be a software expert and used to apply the accumulated expertise of specialists to problem solving, for areas such as chemistry and physics.
    Later that year came the second event, the production of Victor 3900 Desktop Calculator. Victor was the first to use shift register for both logic and memory, which could perform multiple functions.
