Computer

A computer can perform calculations very fast.

 


Explanation

Because computers always are formal finite systems, artificial intelligence is not possible. Most probably, human intellect is also restricted by those limitations.

 


Numeral systems

In computers, information is almost always stored in bits. They can have the values 0 or 1. In the Soviet Union at that time one also built computers that worked with trits. They can have the values 0, 1 or 2.

 


Additional information

German inventor Konrad Zuse built the first program-controlled computer, the Z3, in 1941.
