Who Invented the Modern Computer and When?

Answer

Many inventors contributed to the history of computers and that a computer is a complex piece of machinery made up of many parts, each of which can be considered a separate invention. The first practical electronic machine that could be considered a computer was the Atanasoff-Berry Computer (ABC) invented in 1942 by John V. Atanasoff and Clifford Berry and while not perhaps practical, it could certainly be considered the first electronic device invented for computing. It was the development of the microprocessor that allowed computers to become smaller, more powerful and yet affordable by most.
