  • Howard H. Aiken (IBM)

    Howard H. Aiken (IBM)
    Analytic of Charles Babbage.The computer used electromagnetic signals to move the mechanical parts. This machine was slow (it took 3 to 5 seconds per calculation) and inflexible (the sequence of calculations could not be changed); but he executed basic mathematical operations and complex calculations of equations on the parabolic movement.
  • Bardeen, Brattain y Shockley

    Bardeen, Brattain y Shockley
    Wiliam Bradford Shockley (1910-1989) - along with John Bardeen (1908-1991) and Walter Brattain (1902-1987) - was the father of the transistor, the invention that is probably the greatest silent revolution of the twentieth century, of the that is 70 years old in 2017. The operation of most of the equipment we use every day (televisions, mobile phones, computers) is based on the properties of the transistors with which they are built.
  • Alan Turing

    Alan Turing
    The Manchester Mark 1 was originally a small-scale experimental machine called "The baby". Its design was thought to demonstrate the potential that would have the programs stored in the computer, for that reason it is considered the first computer that worked with RAM.
  • Eckert y Mauchly

    Eckert y Mauchly
    Binary Automatic Computer, was a computer developed by Eckert and Mauchly of the ECC Electronic Control Corporation for the Northrop Aircraft Company of Hawthorne in California, who were developing a secret missile, called Snark. For this they needed a small computer that could be transported in an airplane, in order to guide the Snark missile.
  • Diseño de Charles Babbage

    Charles Babbage, known by many as "The Father of Computing", was born according to some sources in Teignmouth (province of Devonshire, United Kingdom), on December 26, 1791, although according to others he was born at 44 Crosby Row, Walworth Road ( London, United Kingdom). He was the son of Benjamin Babbage and Betsy Plumleigh Teape.
  • J. Presper Eckert y John William Mauchly

    Is the acronym of Universal Automatic Computer, was designed in the decade of the 50s of the twentieth century by the company Remington Rand and is considered the first commercial computer developed in the United States. Conceived by computer pioneers John W. Mauchly and John P. Eckert, this computer was aimed at large companies, both private and public, due to its high cost and installation requirements.
  • John van Neumann

    John van Neumann
    The 'EDVAC' (Electronic Discrete Variable Automatic Computer) was one of the first electronic computers. Unlike the ENIAC, it was not decimal, but binary, and had the first program designed to be stored. This design became the standard of architecture for most modern computers.
  • IBM

    Fortran (previously FORTRAN, 1 contraction of English The IBM Mathematical Formula Translating System) is a high-level programming language of general purpose, 2 procedimental3 and imperative, which is specially adapted to numerical calculation and scientific computing. Originally developed by IBM in 1957 for the IBM 704 team, and used for scientific and engineering applications, FORTRAN came to dominate this area of programming.
  • Jack S. Kilby

    Jack S. Kilby
    Microchips are used in all spheres of modern life: in medical equipment, cell phones, toys and in almost all modern equipment.
    Medicine, for example, is a formidable field of application for this technology, they invade with their possibilities the research centers, clinics, laboratories and even the life of patients with the aim of raising their quality of life.
  • Douglas Engelbart y Bill English

    1er ratón informático= Douglas Carl Engelbart (Portland, Oregon, January 30, 1925 - Atherton, California, July 2, 2013) 1 was an American inventor, descendant of Norwegians. He is known for inventing the mouse, and was a pioneer of human interaction with computers, including hypertext and networked computers.
  • IBM

    IBM 360= The IBM S / 360 (S / 360) was a computer system of the mainframe family, which IBM announced on April 7, 1964. It was the first family of computers that was designed to cover applications, regardless of size or environment (scientific or commercial).
  • IBM

    1er Bug informático= How all (or at least 99%) of the computer terms, "Bug", is a word in English. And it means "bug.""It's a Bug", "It's bugged", "It's half buggy" are terms that we use in IT every day, but most do not know that the origin of the term is as interesting ... as literal.
  • Robert Noice y Gordon Moore

    Robert Noice y Gordon Moore
    Intel Corporation:On July 18, 1968, Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore founded the company Integrated Electronics that, over time and under the excellent executive management of Andrew Grove has become Intel.
    Sistema operativo Unix is a portable, multi-tasking and multi-user operating system; developed in 1969 by a group of employees of the AT&T Bell laboratories, which include Dennis Ritchie, Ken Thompson and Douglas McIlroy
  • Joseph C. Licklider

    Joseph C. Licklider
    ed ARPANET= Within the history of computer science, the "parents" of the Internet are considered four people: Tim Berners-Lee, Larry Roberts, Vinton Cerf, and Robert Kahn. The case of Joseph Carl Robnett Licklider, an American computer scientist with enormous contributions to computer science.He designed the first sketches of what he called Galactic Network creating a concept of a world of interconnected computers, and he did it seven years before the premiere of the Arpanet network.
  • Federico Faggin con Intel

    Federico Faggin con Intel
    1er Microprocesador Federico Faggin started working in Milan (Italy) at age 19, in the year 1960, in the research laboratory of the famous Italian company Olivetti. There he worked designing an experimental computer. In 1970, Faggin became director of development of nothing more and nothing less than the first microprocessor in history: the Intel 4004 processor.
  • Niklaus Wirth

    Niklaus Wirth
    Lenguajes de programación: Pascal Pascal His article of development of a program by successive refinement "program development by stepwise refinement" is considered a classic text in software engineering, as well as his book Algorithms + Data Structures = Programs. 1os disquetes The floppy disk is a magnetic data storage medium, formed by a thin circular sheet of magnetizable and flexible material, enclosed in a cover plastic, square or rectangular, that was used in the computer.

    John Presper Eckert y John William Mauchly

    ENIAC= an acronym for Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer, was one of the first general-purpose computers. It was Turing-complete, digital, and capable of being reprogrammed to solve "an extensive class of numerical problems" It was initially designed to calculate artillery firing tables for the United States.

    Werner Jacobi y Harwick Johnson

    1er Circuito integrado= Such ideas could not be implemented in the industry of 1950, but a finding occurred in the last years of that decade. In 1958, 3 people from 3 companies in the United States of America solved 3 fundamental problems that prevented the production of integrated circuits. Jack Kilby of Texas Instruments patented the integration principle, created the first CI prototype and marketed it.

    IBM 701=1er ordenador comercializado
    IBM 701, known as the "Defense Calculator", announced by the president to its shareholders on April 29, 1952 and to the public on April 7, 1953. IBM's first commercial scientific computer. During 4 years of existence, 19 units were sold. It was developed in the IBM Lab in Poughkeepsie (in the State of New York).The IBM 701 Defense Calculator, a computer designed primarily for scientific calculation, is rented for $ 15,000 a month.
