No I don't think that there were computers in the 1940's TV's just started in the 50's if there were computers (which I highly doubt) thaey wouldn't be anything like today's computers. A little bit of searching will show that there were primitive computers. They were mostly mechanical analog computers rather than electronic digital devices like we have today. They were mostly used for computing bomb and rocket trajectories. Some very early electronic computers were built in England and the U.S. to help decode encrypted Axis messages.

What is the meaning of computers?

Prior to the 1940s, computers were humans paid to do computation. Usually they had mathematics degrees but spent all day calculating with manually operated desk calculators.After the 1940s, computers were machines replacing the humans that used to do those jobs. However the best displaced human computers became the programmers of the machines.

How do the computers of 1940 and 1950 compare to modern computers?

The computers in the 1940s and 1950s were physically much larger, much slower and did not have the power and capabilities that modern computers have. They used different kinds of technology and would not be able to do the types of things that modern computers do.


Are computers becoming human?

No, modern computers are no more "human" than the computers of the late 1940s when they were first introduced, they are automatic algorithmic machines.Computers prior to the introduction of electronic digital computers in the 1940s were human, because they were humans (usually women as the work was considered largely clerical/secretarial and thus below that of the mathematicians who were usually men) whose job title was "computer", as they did computations.Humans tell computers what to do by programming them. No computer has ever figured out how to program itself.

No, the earliest computers (from the 1940s to the mid 1960s) were all mainframe computers. The first microcomputers were made in the early 1970s. However many of the earliest computers were much slower and had far less memory than the earliest microcomputers!

Did they have computers in 1977?

Yes, they did and long before that. Electronic computers go back to the 1940s and mechanical computers to the 18th century. Other computing devices go back even further than that.
