Otherwise, move to the next column to the left and go to Step 3. If the computing agent (in this case a human being) follows each of these simple steps correctly, the entire process results in a correct solution to the given problem. We assume in Step 3 that the agent already knows how to compute the difference between the two digits in any given column, borrowing if necessary. To make change, most people can select the combination of coins and bills that represent the correct change amount without any manual aids, other than the coins and bills.

With the rise of wireless technology, all of these capabilities are now available almost everywhere on tiny, handheld devices. Computing is becoming ubiquitous, yet also less visible. Perhaps the most interesting story from this period concerns Tim BernersLee, the creator of the World Wide Web. In the late 1980s, Berners-Lee, a theoretical physicist doing research at the CERN Institute in Geneva, Switzerland, began to develop some ideas for using computers to share information. Computer engineers had been linking computers to networks for several years, and it was already common in research communities to exchange files and send and receive e-mail around the world.

The needs of the combatants in World War II pushed the development of computer hardware into high gear. Several teams of scientists and engineers in the United States, England, and Germany independently created the first generation of general-purpose digital electronic computers during the 1940s. All of these scientists and engineers used Shannon’s innovation of expressing binary digits and logical operations in terms of electronic switching devices. Among these groups was a team at Harvard University under the direction of Howard Aiken.
