Abstract:

Computing has long history even thousands years before  Pythagoras theorem. Computing made big progress after Sir Isaac Newton had invented differential and integral calculus. In the past,  many computing machines were invented such as abacus, calculating rule and Hand Computingmachine. Von Neumann computer opens a new era of computing. Let us have a tour through latest computing machine.

计算一直伴随着人类社会的进化,例如2700年前的勾股定理。自从牛顿发明微积分之后,过去的三百年计算一直快速发展。聪明的古人发明了许多计算工具,例如算盘,计算尺和手摇计算机。冯诺依曼计算机体系结构开启了计算的新纪元。让我们一起完成一场从远古到现代的计算之旅。
