Since the foundation of science, the computer was a great invention. It was the culmination of years of extensive experiments that spanned a hundred years. They were not performed by just one man. It is still a continuous process. Although computers may seem simple to the casual computer user, they are actually complex. Computer studies and electronics are two different disciplines that can help you fully understand them. Computer is itself subdivided into branches like science.

While some technological inventions were already known before the foundation, the term technology is not yet appropriate. Technology, as a term, is closely related to science. Both science and technology are, however, mutually inclusive. The computer of today, however advanced and sophisticated they are, has its roots in humble beginnings.

How did computers begin?

Abacus, which is the earliest type of calculator, has been in use since early civilizations (estimated to have been around 1000 and 500 B.C.). It was only later that it was adopted elsewhere in this world. This logic is the foundation of how computers do their math. Charles Babbage (also known as Charles Babbage in 1820’s) was the first to develop ideas on how computers should do math. It was originally known as “the difference engine”, but it evolved into what we now call the analytical engine. Charles Babbage died without seeing his ideas realized. Henry Babbage however, his youngest son, did in 1910. His ideas were based upon Charles Babbage. However, the primitive form of computer we see today is not as advanced.
