The Czech Trace in the History of Computer Technology
Efmertová M. ; Golan P. ; Mannová B.
This publication traces the history of selected branches of computer science in the Czech lands and Czechoslovakia, spanning the period from the end of World War II to the 1990s. The book originated within the project of the Ministry of Culture NAKI II – A Century of Information: the World of Informatics and Electrical Engineering – The Computer World Inside Us, held in honor of the 70th anniversary of the modern establishment of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague, and to mark the 40th anniversary of the death of the distinguished Czech scientist Antonín Svoboda. The publication is focused on three fundamental domains: the first one portrays the general development trends in computer technology (Reviewing Computer Technology Developments), the next section is devoted to the Czechoslovak/Czech (or rather Svoboda´s) computer school, showcasing the upswing of Czechoslovakia´s computer technology, associated primarily with the person of Antonín Svoboda, his colleagues and the achievements of the Research Institute of Mathematical Machines, while accentuating Czech/Czechoslovak contributions to the overal upsurge of information technology. The final part describes recent and contemporary advances in IT, particularly since the 1980s, featuring the Internet, the web and virtual reality. This publication provides an insightful invitation to reflect on the impressive progress of this particular branch, namely its giant technological leap made over the past 70 years.
