  • Slide 14
  • 1947 Donald Watts Davies and Alan Turing build the fastest digital computer in England the Pilot ACE Douglas Engelbart comes up with the idea of key borders and screens instead of punch holes.
  • Slide 15
  • 1949 Howard Aiken develops the Harvard-MARK III. Harvard- MARK was an important creation because it was partially electronic and partially electromechanical.
