Parts of ENIAC are on display today at the university's school of engineering and applied science.
Fleksy created a smart and fast keyboard on mobile and the company has just begun developing its software for iOS 8, said Eniac founding general partner Vic Singh.
Bartik, a female mathematician recruited at the age of 20 to the war effort in 1945, offers her autobiography entwined with a history of computers, as she was eventually one of the six women to work on the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC).
Five joint technology initiatives (JTIs) have been implemented: Clean Sky (aeronautics), Innovative Medicines Initiative (pharmaceutical research), FCH (fuel cells and hydrogen), ARTEMIS (embedded systems) and ENIAC (nanoelectronics).
Para Monsivais, al igual que de Lartigue, Cartier-Bresson o Doisneau, la fotografia de Casasola es tambien contemporanea de todos los hombres: "Azoro y gratitud, displicencia y disciplina: el fotografo descompone y acumula lo que ve en las calles, la vivencia apasionada y solemne de la inclusion o la marginalidad."

These "computers" were women who developed firing and bombing tables that were needed, efforts that later led to the development of computing technology like that of the ENIAC: Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (Fritz 13).
The most groundbreaking computer was the ENIAC , in 1946, and the other "automatic" computers that followed it.
The institute's computer, MANIAC, was not the first all-purpose digital electronic computer (that was ENIAC, at the University of Pennsylvania), but in Dyson's telling it was the most influential.
The other five initiatives are Artemis (embedded Intelligence and systems); Clean Sky; European Nanoelectronics Initiative Advisory Council (ENIAC); Fuel Cells and Hydrogen (FCH); and Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES).
Khosrow Zareh worked on software for the Eniac Technology Co., which provides services to almost all of Iran's banks.
The recent death at age 86 of Jean Bartik, last of the original Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer (ENIAC) programmers, shines light once again on the thorny but fascinating question of who invented the computer.
