Computer History, Part 1: From Enigma to ENIAC and the UNIVAC.A documentary about the history of the computer. In this first part, the Colossus computer was created out of the necessity to solve the Enigma and win the second world war. The Colossus was very limited as a decoder of the Enigma.The first electronic general-purpose computer was the ENIAC, designed by John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert. The need for processing more data led to the creation of the UNIVAC.
Computer History, Part 2: From IBM to Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.A documentary about the history of the computer. In this second part, after the creation of the UNIVAC, IBM designs the first large-scale electronic computer manufactured in quantity the IBM 701. The space race leads to the invention of the transistor and the integrated circuit. Intel engineer Ted Hoff designs the microprocessor and the evolution of the computer rapidly takes off. Steve Jobs and Stephen Wosniak introduce the personal computer and Bill Gates proves the importance of software.
