  1. nice pace and excellent video,eagerly waiting for you to make videos on future computing technologies like Quantum computing (various methodologies of quantum calculation), dna computing etc and also comparing computing speeds and possibly their applications and how they will change our future

  2. Plzzzzz…explain how computer can read program nd shows the result with a simple task like addition command no one provides this basic impotant information

  3. only mistake i could find after an entire evening watching all your videos, love them by yhe way! I think you mention that Zuse's first computer used relays. If i remember correctly, Zuse's Z1 machine in 1936 was purely mechanical, no relays or vacume tubes. Very much like the analytical engine in that respect but Zuse used binary mechanical logic gates of his own design. The machine ran off an electric motor to act as the clock and give mechanical motion to his gates. It is considered the most complex mechanical device ever constructed with over a quarter million different moving parts… not to mention the dude built it by himself pretty much, in his parents apartment's living room, FREAKEN BADASS if you ask me! XD

  5. Moore's law: what if the industry didn't see it as a prediction, but as a rule? There are competitors, and new chips will require high investments… What if the captains of industry together made agreements about growth and risk reduction? That puts Moore's law in a new light … Could it be that intentionally too small steps have been taken to generate more sales?

  6. Sweet video! Was utterly surprised when i clicked out of fullscreen and saw the amount of views, likes and subsrcribers. Keep it up man i'll spread the word!

  7. Forgot russian inventors of first computer( as we understand it today) in city of Omsk, Russia. And other grear russian engineers who made all this happen. Well anglo-saxons and japanees just stolen

  8. And as you read comments below. The credit that authors of this video gave to some of the people they mentioned had been exaggerated.

  9. In 1968 , soviet engineer-electromechanic Arsenij Anatolievich Gorohov invented a machine wich was called a " Device to task a program to reproduce a contour of a component". Thats how it was named in authors sertificate, patent Nr 383005 on may 18th of the year 1968. Inventor himself called it a "Programable device intellector". The Intellector had a monitor, stand-alone system block with hard disk drive , a device for solving autonomous problems and personal dialogue with computer, motherboard, memory, GPU and other , excluding computer mouse.

  10. The inventor never got money from the goverment. The scheme of this invention was published in 1970 in "The ballot of inventions, descoveries and trademarks" , making it accessible to everyone. In 1975 in the USA american businessman Edvard Roberts relieses "Altair 8800" based on Intels microprocessor "Intel 8800" reliesed in 1974. In 1976 Steve Voznyak ant Steve Jobs compile "Altair 8800" in garage and call it "Apple I" for a price of 666.66$ – first personal computer wich excluded metal case, monitor and keyboard. Two years later these parts were included and it was called "Apple II".

  11. The first personal computer was invented by regular russian constructor Arsenij Anatolievich Gorohov in Omsk NII of Aviation Technologies in 1968.

  12. In 1951 soviet computer "Whirlwind" was the first to output data on the screen. It had 512 bites of memory. And it was as high as two-story building.

  13. In 1968 , soviet engineer-electromechanic Arsenij Anatolievich Gorohov invented a machine wich was called a " Device to task a program to reproduce a contour of a component".

  14. 3:57 "capable of computing anything that is computable" noooo seriously i how wonderful and extraordinary is that !! It's like I'm capable of eating anythinggg that is eatable ๐Ÿคฃ .. no but really nice video i just laughed a lot at that point

  15. if you ever go back in time to 1950. don't tell them you got 128 Gb smartphone in your pocket, you will be locked as crazy person

  16. keep it up, the youngsters of today need to know where there processing power started that is in their devices today!

  17. Why did you leave out the Jaquard loom? The jaquard loom, which used punch cards, inspired Babbage to make his machines.

  18. Really great video. You are a good teacher, but your monotone fast speech makes it hard to follow along and harder to commit to memory, Try using a bit of excitement and inflection in your verbal presentation. Your channel will get TONS of subscribers if you make the presentation more easy to listen to. Great, excellent content though.

  19. If the narrator practiced enunciating syllables and speaking with fluency, this would be highly watchable. Very informative nonetheless.
