The Z1, considered to be the first programmable computer. Created by Konrad Zuse, a German Engineer.
First Computer used in War
Alan Turing creates the 'Bombe'. This machine was considered one of the first computers used in war. Was meant to decrypt the encrypted messages that were send between the Nazis. This were messages like attacking plans or strategies.
The ENIAC invention
Is the Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer. Was meant to solve ballistic problems in the US Army. Invented by John Presper Eckert and John William Mauchly. Ballistic attacks done by US army were more effective and the ENIAC was used in the Korean war.
Norbert Wiener publishes a book about artificial intelligence. Did a series of experiments of anti-aircraft systems and radar images. With this advance, during the next war (Korean war) US had a clear view of where the enemy aircrafts were located.
Whirlwind I accomplished
The project begun as a aircraft simulator but it ended as a electronic digital computer. Was the 1st computer to have magnetic core memory. Was then used in the SAGE air defense system of US during the Cold War.
IBM enters to the market
IBM 701 was launched as their first product in the market. Is known as the "Defense Calculator"; after the launch, Korean War begun.
First Computer Language Developed
Grace Hopper develops a computer language, later names COBOL. IBM 701 is meant to help the UN control the Korean War.
CDC 6600 machine
This computer appeared because countries needed and demanded a better technology (computers); they wanted a 'supermachine'. All this evolution was driven by the Cold War.
Army begin the laptop usage
Military computers evolve into portable ones. The 1982 'Grid Compass' laptop is included in the Army activities as a way of easier mobility. Was used in-field and also NASA used it for Space Shuttles.
Robots usage begins
During Afghanistan War, with the usage of computers, robots were developed. For example the 'ACER' robot, that is basically a self-operated tank with a computer that controls it.
