Introduction to the Sixth Generation of Computers
The sixth generation of computers means the computers will be using ArtificialIntelligence (AI). It’s a computer technology that allows us to interact withthe computers. Currently, the sixth generation of computers are still in thedevelopment stage and have not been released to the public. However, there isa hope that the computers will be able to interact both physically andpsychologically to the people such as can see, hear, speak, think, and be ableto make conclusions like the human. The users are no longer need to do writingor programming (Programless Computer).In the future, it will be possible to make the size of computers smaller butcheaper and certainly more sophisticated than the previous generation ofcomputers. It means the speed of the sixth generation computers would reach upto 1 billion operations per second because it uses multiple processors thatcan work together in parallel (system vector processor). In which, suchtechnology has been utilized in the latest computers.In addition to the development of computers for personal use, the sixthgeneration of computers would also be used by large industries to supporttheir activities such as creating aircraft design, weather forecasting, andoil drilling. It means the architecture and capabilities of the sixth-generation computers will be more precise and accurate to the primaryfunction.Currently, there are also a lot of ongoing micro-tech development and audioand output. Some of the future computers probably will not require hardwarecomponents such as monitor and keyboard. But they will be replaced by ahologram display of virtual keyboard. So, it is entirely possible to have atiny computer or mini computer in the form of a watch, pen, etc.
The Sixth Generation of Computers Development Concept
Nowadays, we cannot see the real form of the sixth generation computers. Butsome sources said that some concepts about the development of the sixth-generation computers include:
The Characteristics of Computers in the Future
* Every generation of computers has its characteristics. The following would be the characteristics of the sixth generation computers. * Computers would be smaller and different from the current computers. The shape is tailored its uses. So, A computer can be a pen, watch, etc. * Using Artificial Intelligence (AI). The sixth generation of computers can interact directly (see, hear, talk) with humans, be able to think and be able to make conclusions, even predict an event using data and forecast what will happen. * Using Parallel Vector Processors (more than 200 vectors). The implementation of parallel vector processors has begun since the fourth-generation of computers. But on the development of the sixth generation of computers, the parallel vector processors have been more sophisticated. * Using ULSI technology; enables a small microchip to have capabilities like a computer. * Using a blue laser or hologram * Cheaper but more sophisticatedFifth Generation of Computer
Fifth Generation of Computer
In 1982, the fifth-generation computer system was begun by Japan’s Ministry ofInternational Trade and Industry. In this generation, the VLSI technology hasadvanced and become ULSI technology, stands for Ultra Large-Scale Integration.That means ten million electronic components were used in the production ofmicroprocessor chips.The computer made in the fifth generation was created with the help of logicprogramming and massively parallel computing. This generation of computers wasbased upon parallel processing hardware and AI (Artificial Intelligence)software. Artificial intelligence has the ability to illustrates the means andmethod of making computers think the same as human beings. In this generation,all kinds of high-level languages such as C and C++, .Net, Java and more areused.The primary objective to propose this system is to achieve progress inartificial intelligence and include this into a new generation of verypowerful computers; so that these computers can also be used by the commonman. The systems that include AI are being used in numerous real-lifeapplications and provide various benefits. In the conditions that needknowledge and skills of a type, these systems can perform well in these typesof situations that a human can receive with the help of formal training.However, they are unable to fit in the situation where the need for tacitknowledge where a human can receive the tacit knowledge by communicating innatural language and concerned with shape and speech recognition.IBM’s Watson, as a contestant was featured on the TV show Jeopardy that ismore common example of artificial intelligence in computers. Other moreexamples that used AI are: on Windows 8 and Windows 10 computers, Microsoft’sCortana and Apple’s Siri on the iPhone. Also, AI is used by the Google searchengine to process user searches. Other examples included: UltraBook,Chromebook, Notebook, Desktop, Laptop.
Characteristics of fifth generation of computers
There are various features of 5th generation computers, which are as follows:Use of Artificial Intelligence: One of the main features of 5th generationcomputers is the use of AI, which helps to make computers more powerful. Theapplications of AI are everywhere, from navigating to browsing. Also, it isapplied for video analyzing, image processing, and more. It is expected to seethat AI would automate nearly every aspect of computing.The huge development of storage: Although there is available SSD storage thatis faster as compared to HDD. And, the development is running on a few othertechnologies. Therefore, fifth-generation computers, expecting faster andlarger storage.Multi-processor-based system: Presently, one processor per CPU is used;however, special computers are already available that are used with parallelcomputing, but these computers are not complete and have very limitedfunctionalities. * Another feature is the use of optical fiber in circuits. * Development of the elements of programs and Natural language processing (NLP) * The computer made in the fifth generation used ULSI (Ultra Large-Scale Integration) technology. * Advancement in Superconductor technology and Parallel Processing. * These computers have user-friendly interfaces including multimedia features. * Development of large powers with artificial intelligence. * Magnetic enabled chips
History of Computer – Generation of Computer
It cannot be properly verified that the development of computers has beenstarted since. But officially computer development has been classifiedaccording to generation. They are divided into five parts from the main tower.When it comes to the generation of computers, then it means that computers’generations. As the Computer grows, they are divided into differentgenerations to make it easier to understand correctly.
Fifth Generation of Computers – 1985-present “Artificial Intelligence.”
The fifth-generation belongs to today’s Dor, where Artificial Intelligence hasestablished its dominance. Now, many new technologies like Speech recognition,Parallel Processing, Quantum calculations are being used in the latesttechnology.This is a generation where, due to the Computer’s Artificial Intelligence, theability to make decisions on its own has come. Gradually all its works will beautomated.
Definition of Computer
There are many components of any modern digital computer. Still, some of themare very important such as Input device, Output Device, CPU (CentralProcessing Unit), Mass Storage Device, and Memory.accepts data| Input —|— processes data| Processing produces output| Output stores results| Storage
Computer hardware and software
We can call computer hardware any physical device that we use in our Computer,whereas computer software means the collection of codes that we install in ourmachine’s Hard Drive to run the hardware.For example, the computer monitor that we use to navigate, the mouse that weuse to navigate, are all computer hardware. At the same time, the InternetBrowser with which we visit the website, and the operating system in whichthat Internet Browser runs. We call such things as software.We can say that a computer is a combination of software and hardware, bothhave the same roles; both can work together.
Use of computers in the field of education
They have the most significant hand in school, if a student needs informationabout something, then with the help of this information becomes availablewithin a few minutes. Research has shown that with computers’ help, thelearning performance of any student has increased significantly. Nowadays,sitting at home can be taught with the help of Online Classes.
Benefits of Computer
By the way, it will not be wrong to say that Computer has made the life of usvery comfortable with the help of its incredible speed, accuracy, and Storage.With this, humans can save anything whenever they want and can find anythingeasily. We can say that a computer is a versatile machine because it is veryflexible in its jobs.But despite this, we can also say that the Computer is a very versatilemachine because it is very flexible in doing its work. At the same time, thesemachines also have some essential advantages and disadvantages.Let’s know about them.
By the way, a lot of technological changes are coming on the computer day byday. Every day, it is becoming more affordable and more efficient and moreefficient. As the need of the people increases, so will there be more changes.Previously it was of the shape of a house; now it is going in our hands.There will also come a time when our mind will control it. Nowadays,scientists are doing more research on optical Computers, DNA computers, NeuralComputer, and Quantum Computer. Along with this, much attention is also beingpaid to Artificial Intelligence so that it can do its work smoothly.
