Computer - Wikipedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/computer
A computer is a device that can be instructed to carry out arbitrary sequences of arithmetic or logical operations automatically. The ability of computers to follow generalized sets of operations, called programs, enables them to perform an extremely wide range of tasks. Such computers are used as control systems for a very ...
Computing - Wikipedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/computing
Computing is any goal-oriented activity requiring, benefiting from, or creating a mathematical sequence of steps known as an algorithm — e.g. through computers. Computing includes designing, developing and building hardware and software systems; processing, structuring, and managing various kinds of information; ...
Computer science - Wikipedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/computer_science
Computer science is the study of the theory, experimentation, and engineering that form the basics for the design and use of computers. It is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications and the systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression, and mechanization of the methodical ...
Computer network - Wikipedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/computer_network
A computer network, or data network, is a digital telecommunications network which allows nodes to share resources. In computer networks, networked computing devices exchange data with each other using a data link. The connections between nodes are established using either cable media or wireless media. Network ...
Human computer - Wikipedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/human_computer
The term "computer", in use from the early 17th century meant "one who computes": a person performing mathematical calculations, before electronic computers became commercially available. "The human computer is supposed to be following fixed rules; he has no authority to deviate from them in any detail." Teams of ...
Personal computer - Wikipedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/personal_computer
A personal computer (PC) is a multi-purpose computer whose size, capabilities, and price make it feasible for individual use. PCs are intended to be operated directly by an end user, rather than by a computer expert or technician. Computer time-sharing models that were typically used with larger, more expensive ...
Computer engineering - Wikipedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/computer_engineering
Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates several fields of electrical engineering and computer science required to develop computer hardware and software. Computer engineers usually have training in electronic engineering (or electrical engineering), software design, and hardware–software integration ...

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/computer_program
A computer program is a collection of instructions that performs a specific task when executed by a computer. A computer requires programs to function. A computer program is usually written by a computer programmer in a programming language. From the program in its human-readable form of source code, a compiler ...
Why Computers Should Be Hidden - The Atlantic
www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2017/10/...
Oct 25, 2017 ... The joy I used to feel when using computers has turned largely to anguish. These machines once provided a unique and compelling way to do things, from writing to shopping to communication to entertainment. But today, devices and services strive to replace every activity with computer use itself.
The Computers - Wikipedia
