Computers concern you


When Charles Babbage, a professor of mathematics at Cambrige University, invented the first calculating machine in 1812 he could hardly have imagined the situation we find ourselves in today. Nearly everything we do in the modern world is helped, or even controlled, by computers, the complicated descendants of his simple machine. Computers are being used more and more extensively in the world today, for the simple reason that they are far more efficient than human beings. They have much better memories and can store huge amounts of information, and they can do calculations in a fraction of the time taken by a human mathematician. No man alive can do 500,000 sums in one second, but an advanced computer can. In fact, computers can do many of the things we do, but faster and better. They can pay wages, reserve seats on planes, control machines in factories, work out tomorrow's weather, and even play chess, write poetry and compose music. Let's look now at some of the ways in which computers concern people in their daily work and lives.

Chief inspector Hartson talks about the ways in which computers can help the police fight crime."Members of the public often think of detective work as fast and exciting when most of it is slow and boring", he said. "For example, a detective on a stolen car case may have to check through long lists of information, and in the time it takes him to do this the thief may well escape. With the new National Police Computer we are now able to find out details of car ownership and driving licences in a fraction of the time it takes by traditional methods. In police work speed is often essential, so computers are ideal for helping us catch criminals".

A. Business has been revolutionized by the marriage of computers and communication systems. Multimedia is the interaction of audio, statistical and video information with the help of software working on a specially equipped personal computer.

There are a number of ways in which they can be used: programs of state or interfirm instruction and visual information, video-conferences, long-distance interactive instruction, access to different data banks, computer games, interactive fantastics and novels, and table video.

B. Increasingly widespread are electronic catalogues and encyclopedias on different branches of knowledge with the pos- sibility of very quick search for necessary data with the help of necessary indexes and key words. Gradually all of this will be converted to electronic form with colour, sound and motion.

Interfirm information in the shape of multimedia makes it possible to catalogue it, and make it visually attractive, and easily accessible to ;mote users via electronic mail.

Irrespective of the type and purpose, multimedia programs are usually recorded on optical compact-discs. Quite a number of companies deal with the development, production and sale of training programs for children from three to eight years of age. Fairly widespread are educational programs which help in studying the humanities, foreign languages, and raising the skills of oral speech and written language at secondary and higher educational institutions.

C. To partially meet the requests of the users of personal computers, the biggest American producers of computers and communication means have pooled their efforts in improving the Ethernet computer network, with the aim of adding built-in possibilities to multimedia.

Sound is a significant component of multimedia. Therefore a large number of the producers of electronic equipment bring out video plates for personal computers which have a high degree of integration of electronic components. The technology of sound synthesizers is built into multimedia plates for the reproduction of music. Special plates for recording video images make it possible to record in the computer images from TV sets or video cameras.

D. Analysts state that by the end of the century the sales of personal computer systems, equipped with multimedia components, will increase significantly. And this growth will be caused by me real requirements of business. For instance, personal information systems in stores will make it possible to inform customers about a much larger quantity of goods than it would be possible to put up for demonstration. The existence of such systems is particularly important if we consider that ever more purchases will be made from home through the systems of satellite and cable communication. In the nearest future the utmost development will be received by services on global video and other expanded systems of communication.
