Another scientist of England called Charles Babbage tried to invent a machine called the computer, but he couldn’t succeed. The credit of building the modern computer goes to three persons – Mr P. Icrate, Mr John W. Mackley and Mr. G.V. Newman. With their joint co-operation and efforts in 1944, a machine was built. It was named ‘Electronic & Computer’.
