When was the first computer invented and by whom?
There are several people whose work is noteworthy in this regard. I recommend "Why Was the Computer Invented When It Was" by Tom Korner for a good overview on how and when the first computers were developed. http://plus.maths.org/issue20/features/korner/ Answer Listen this:- Mapier(the inventor of longarithms) Charles Babbage(English Mathematican) Ada Byron(daughter of Lord Byron,the famous poet.) Babbage is often thought of as being the father of computer because of his inventions. Ada is usually considered to be the first computer programmer because of her analyses and explanation of Babbage's work. The first computer was invented by a british scientist Charles P.Babbage in 1822 but completed in 1871 by Helmet P.Babbage (the son of Charles P.Babbage). Answer The Difference Engine: The first of these devices was conceived in 1786 by J. H. Mueller. It was never built. Difference engines were forgotten and then rediscovered in 1822 by Charles Babbage. This machine used the decimal numbers system and was powered by cranking a handle. The British government first financed the project but then later cut off support. Babbage went on to design his much more general analytical engine but later returned and produced an improved design (his "Difference Engine No. 2") between 1847 and 1849. Answer I researched, and found out the real inventor of the very first computer. Her (yes it's a her) name was MARINA NEUMANN. Although she was not recognized for her invention she was the one that invented it. The one that was recognized for her work was her father VON NEUMANN. The only reason she did not get recognized for her work was because she was a girl. The year was 1830. Answer Everyone who says it was Charles Babbage really should do more research, because even if u talk about the first eletrical computer he never made a working one. He just helped the future comp builders to produce the first digital computer. Answer ENIAC was not the first of it's kind. The UK Ministry of Defence had one running during World War 2. I met one of the people who worked on it. When not at work, one of his hobby activities was embroidery - he created brilliant embroideries.

The Micral N was designed by François Gernelle working for the French company R2E in 1973 for process control. It was the first low-cost, commercial, non-kit computer based o…n a microprocessor.

Contributions to computer networks were made by the following: CERN in Switzerland The first computer network was created at CERN the European research cente…r for particle physics. it is in Switzerland. UCLA in 1969 The previous comment "the first computer network was created at CERN" is not correct. In 1989, CERN added the WWW as a new feature to the already-existing Internet. The Internet itself was created in 1969 at UCLA. There were previous experiments in wide-area networking, e.g., in 1965. For more info, see "history of the internet" on isoc.org. DARPA The computer networking revolution began in the early 1960s and has led us to today internet technology. The Internet was first invented by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) for military purposes, and then expanded to the purpose of communication among scientists. In 1957, the launch of Sputnik had spurred the U.S to create a network for communications links between military and university computers that would not be disrupted by bombs or enemy spies. In order to solve the problem, in 1968 DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) made contracts with BBN (Bolt, Beranek and Newman) to create ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network). Sergei Lebedev in the Ukraine The first computer network in Ukraine by Sergei Lebedev for the USSR antimissile system. The system was operational in 1960 far before the idea of ARPANET. SAGE air defence computer network A network of vacuum tube computers connected by leased telephone lines and the first MODEMs used by the US to protect against bomber attacks. The system was operational in 1958.
The first telephone was created by Charles Woodson
About 1946, but it took up a whole room and took hours to do calculations tiny calculators can now do in milla-seconds.
The first known analog computer is believed to have been built before 100 BC, it is unknown when it was invented.
Joseph Nicephore Niepce created the first photographic image in 1826 with the pinhole camera. George Eastman invented a simple camera in 1888.
It was invented in 1946 by accident. Percy Spencer was the inventor.
John Atanasoff and Clifford Berry invented the first electronic-digital computer at Iowa State University between 1939 and 1942. The Atanasoff-Berry Computer (ABC) represe…nted several innovations in computing, including a binary system of arithmetic, parallel processing, regenerative memory, and a separation of memory and computing functions.
It was invented in 1856 by an English fellow named Charles Babbage. Nobody really knows when the first computer was invented. It has many inventors that have contributed t…o the history of computers. technically speaking the first computer was made in the c.3rd century A.D. it was called the abacus is consisted of of movable counters to speed up computations it is not known as to whom made the abacus but just remember that computers are counting machines and that some of the first computers were made for calculation and there for they are calculators. Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine back in 1837 is considered to be the first computer by many experts. There were several people whose work is noteworthy in this regard. I recommend "Why Was the Computer Invented When It Was" by Tom Korner for a good overview on how and when the first computers were developed. maths.org is a good reference. . The first computer was invented by a British scientist Charles P.Babbage in 1822 but completed in 1871 by Helmet P.Babbage (the son of Charles P.Babbage). The Difference Engine: The first of these devices was conceived in 1786 by J. H. Mueller. It was never built. Difference engines were forgotten and then rediscovered in 1822 by Charles Babbage.

Babbage went on to design his much more general analytical engine but later returned and produced an improved design (his "Difference Engine No. 2") between 1847 and 1849. You could start with Charles Babbage's Difference engine or the ABC created by John Vincent Atanasoff and Clifford Berry in 1942. Also consider the mechanical analog computer known as the Antikythera Mechanism built ca. 100 BC it may have been created by Archimedes.
The Altair 8800, from Micro Instrumentation Telemetry Systems (MITS) of Albuquerque, NM, was first featured in the January 1975 edition of Popular Electronics. It is considere…d by many to be the first mass produced personal computer. The Altair was initially offered only as a kit. It comprised of a case, a power supply, a front panel and a passive motherboard with 16 expansion slots. All of the circuitry-the CPU and memory-are on cards which plug into the expansion slots, which MITS called the Altair bus. No keyboard or monitor was necessary, or cheaply available, users flipped switches on the front panel, writing their own programs in machine language, and watching the LEDs on the panel light up in response to their commands. Bill Gates and Paul Allen saw an opportunity and wrote Altair BASIC, a true programming language, and the first commercial Microsoft computer product. A:Neiman-Marcus offered a Honeywell 316 minicomputer as a "kitchen computer" for a bit over $10,000 in one of its Christmas catalogues several years earlier. I don't recall how many of them they sold, if any. The Honeywell 316, and later emulations of its instruction set, provided the basis for the ARPAnet interface computers and packet routers until well into the 1990s.
Answer . Karl Benz , the German mechanical engineer who designed, patented and in 1885 built the world's first practical automobile to be powered by an internal-combustion …engine.
Babbage invented The Analytical Engine programmable mechanical computer in the 1840s but never built it. Several programable electromechanical and electronic computers were i…nvented almost simultaneously in the 1940s and built and operated.
I think it was Charles Babbage who invented the first programmable computer. answer 2 Atanasoff, at Iowa State developed an electronic digital computer in 1936, with associat…e Berry. Known as the ABC calculator (Atanasoff - Berry - Computer). It used charge on capacitors as the storage mechanism, rather than magnetic. In the inevitable courtroom 'discussions', Atanasoff was judged the patentee of the original concept. Their machine used Boolean algebra, and solved up to 30 simultaneous equations at a time. A replica of his machine exists.
The first biological computer was the human brain. It wasn't so much invented as evolved. One of the earliest analog computers, the abacus, can be dated to around 2700-2300BCE…. However, one of the most complex analog computers for its time must be the Antikythera mechanism, which is reckoned to date from around 100BCE. Nothing that comes close to its level of complexity appeared for another 1500 years. However, Charles Babbage's 1822 proposal which led to his design of Difference Engine No.2 pushed the boundaries of complexity beyond anything that had come before. So much so that Babbage is now credited as being a father of the computer. Even though he never completed construction of his designs beyond some simple protypes, a working model was completed 1991 which proved his designs were well within the tolerances expected of the period. However, it is only fair to say that Johann Helfrich von Müller deserves some credit as he conceived the idea of a difference engine in 1786, but lacked funding to pursue the idea further. Sorry, but the Abacus is a digital computing aid not an analog computer.
