The 5 Generations of the Computer and its Features Each of the five generations of computer is characterized by an important technological development that had an innovative change in the way the computers operate. Introduced in the early 1970s, computed tomography (CT) quickly revolutionized the field of medical imaging. Taking advantage of the development of faster and more powerful computers, CT combines a tightly collimated x-ray beam and detectors that rotate around the patient.

The period of fifth generation is 1980-till date. In the fifth generation, VLSI technology became ULSI (Ultra Large Scale Integration) technology, resulting in the production of microprocessor chips having ten million electronic components.

This generation is based on parallel processing hardware and AI (Artificial Intelligence) software. AI is an emerging branch in computer science, which interprets the means and method of making computers think like human beings. All the high-level languages like C and C++, Java, .Net etc., are used in this generation.

AI includes −

  • Robotics
  • Neural Networks
  • Game Playing
  • Development of expert systems to make decisions in real-life situations
  • Natural language understanding and generation

The main features of fifth generation are −

  • ULSI technology
  • Development of true artificial intelligence
  • Development of Natural language processing
