ENIAC stands for Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer. It was one of the earliest general-purpose electronic digital computers and was completed in 1945. ENIAC was designed to calculate artillery firing tables for the United States Army’s Ballistic Research Laboratory. It had thousands of vacuum tubes, switches, and wiring and could perform calculations 1,000 times faster than any previous machine. ENIAC set the standard for future computers and influenced the development of modern technology. It is considered a pioneering computer and a significant invention in the history of computing.
