New Calculating Wizard
EDSAC, a British cousin of our electronic mathematical brains, such as ENIAC and ED VAC (PS, May ’47, p. 95), will handle 10,000 multiplications a minute. Now under construction at England’s Cambridge University, EDSAC will remember details of calculations and use “judgment” in choosing the best way to reach a result.
