Build the Binary Computer Formally, it is possible to construct a binary computer using any device that meets the following four conditions: It has two stable energy states (for 0 and 1). These two states are separated by a large energy barrier (so a 0 does not accidentally become a 1, or the reverse). It is possible to sense what state the device is in (to see if it is storing a 0 or a 1) without permanently destroying the stored value. It is possible to switch from a 0 to a 1 and vice versa 2

Claude Shannon His master's thesis in 1937, A Symbolic Analysis of Relay and Switching Circuits , is considered as "possibly the most important, and also the most famous, master's thesis of the century." He came up with the idea that electrical switches can be used to do Boolean logic.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
