  • The Impact Of Technology On American Society

    levers. Those awkward machines led to the first digital computers that stored numbers electronically, experimented with by a Harvard professor and mathematicians. Two years later scientists at the University of Pennsylvania built the first fully-electronic computer, used by industry to mass-produce, (Fuller G , R Buckminster, P. 339). They evolved quickly during the 1940s and were used by the military and planes (Fuller G , R Buckminster, P. 339). The development of the transistor made the computer more refined by not relying on tubes within the devices and other hardware. From the 1950s on, transistor use improved the computers a great deal as well as software programs. (Fuller G , R Buckminster, P. 342). An American woman, Grace Hopper made great strides in computer programming, working for the navy and several large companies. (Fuller G , R Buckminster, P. 343). Some of the major Apollo space programs were developed by African American mathematician. She added to the work of Hoppers manuals. She had worked for NASA and IBM.
