Fifth Generation of mordern computer (1990 onwards)

Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) technology gave way to Ultra Large Scale Integration that led to the development of microprocessor chip with several million electronic components on each. Powerful laptops, notebook PCs and desktops were the other developments during this period.
The fifth generation is essentially about a new super-breed of computers. These computers will be able to think and take decisions. Artificial Intelligence is being built into the computer. The revolutionary parallel processing is being used in the new breed of computers in place of conventional Von Neumann architecture.
On the software front, effort is being directed at developing languages to cope with su,h new generation computers. Languages known as functional languages and object-oriented languages such as C++ have been developed during this generation. Development of more user-friendly operating systems like MS Windows and Lynux, and Lynux based software products are the other developments during this period.
