The Complete History of the Home Microprocessor

Opis filmu


We are living through a digital revolution. A super-connected world in which technology engulfs every aspect lives. Since the end of the second world war, humanity has been on a relentless pursuit of innovation and technological progress. The proportion of people living in extreme poverty has dropped from almost 3/4 in 1950 to less than an eighth, a testament to this progress.

Of course, this rapid advancement doesn't just come out of nowhere, and one of the key drivers was the microprocessor. The ability to shrink an entire computer to a chip the size of a finger has allowed for the mass adoption of both home and mobile computers. They have also had far reaching implications, helping to advance every industry, from manufacturing, finance, retail, to healthcare. The last 75 years has seen computer technology grow at a truly incredible rate. This video covers the complete journey: from early vacuum tube machines to the birth of home computers, from the multimedia madness of the 1990s, to the the multicore mindset of the 2000s and 2010s. And finally: what lays ahead.
