The answer may be to use your critical thinking skills as an analog computer (from Neal O. Hines' Atoms, Nature, and Man – “Analog computers have been used experimentally for theoretical projections of results.”) In other words, don't let the coming digital healthcare world intimidate or panic you.
Dr. Urbatsch will be demonstrating LANL's museum-quality replica of this analog computer. Enrico Fermi and L.D.P. King created the FERMIAC in 1947 to study the paths of neutrons using the Monte Carlo method. More information about History on Tap and other Historical Society programs and events can ...

It was, in reality, an analogue computer, thousands of years before they were invented again. David Wolfe will discuss the details of the discovery and the research into this device. The talk will take place on Wednesday 28 February at 18:00 at the Iziko South African Museum, 25 Queen Victoria Street.
Many innovations were introduced with the B-29 Superfortress including: “a pressurized cabin, dual-wheeled, tricycle landing gear, and an analog computer-controlled fire-control system that directed four remote machine gun turrets that could be operated by a single gunner and a fire-control officer.

In that blog, I ended by saying that “I sometimes wonder if we shouldn't bring back a modern version of an analog computer.” Professor Tsividis wanted to alert me to the fact that he and his colleagues had done just that. Indeed, they created a single-chip analog/hybrid computer. It's described in detail in an ...

A unique Greek creation, it was not known what its purpose was at first, but it has become known as the world's first analogue computer that was used for an incredible range of things. The Greeks used the device to track the movement of the sun, moon and planets and predict solar eclipses – it could also ...
