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.
