Is there another use for semiconductors other than to conduct electricity?
Yes. In electronic devices, semiconductors fulfill a variety of functions, including current filtering - a semiconductor diode only lets current pass in one direction - and signal amplification, using transistors. Transistors have many uses, including for electronic switching. Do some reading on diodes and transistors, while bearing in mind that they use semiconductors. Yes.

How Computer came into being?
various business, engineering, and scientific problems in the 1930s and 1940s (including problems raised in WW2) became too large and too time consuming to handle by conventional means, so techniques to automate their solutions were sought. many machines were designed and built: mechanical and electronic analog computers, mechanical and electronic digital computers, even hybrid computers (part digital part analog). ...

What electronics were there in 1936?
Vacuum tube based electronics. Many kinds of radios were in use, including FM radios operating in the VHF band. Early versions of what would become RADAR were in secret development for the military of several countries. Electronic analog computers and mechanical analog computers using electronic torque amplifiers were available and were sold to and used by Universities, and Companies doing engineering designs. That is about it. ...

What is an AC Circuit?
Any electrical (or electronic) circuit containing one or more AC voltage or current sources. AC means Alternating Current, which describes an electrical current in which the direction of flow changes continuously. Depending on the country, for ordinary household AC power services the rate at which the changes in direction take place - called the service frequency - happen at 50 or 60 cycles per second. However alternating currents can run at any practical frequency, including, for example, radio waves and currents, which can run from...
