Fifth Generation of Computer

Fifth Generation of Computer ( Present and Next )

The goal of fifth generation computing is to develop computers that are capable of learning and self-organization. The fifth generation computers use Super Large Scale Integrated (SLSI) chips that are able to store millions of components on a single chip. These computers have large memory requirements.

This generation of computers uses parallel processing that allows several instructions to be executed in parallel, instead of serial execution. Parallel processing results in faster processing speed. The Intel dual-.core microprocessor uses parallel processing.

Symbolic Image of Artificial Intelligence

The fifth generation computers are based on Artificial Intelligence (AI). They try to simulate the human way of thinking and reasoning. Artificial Intelligence includes areas like Expert System (ES), Natural Language Processing (NLP), speech recognition, voice recognition, robotics, etc.

Advantages of Fifth Generation of Computer

» Very large storage capacity.
» Long bit processor builds.
» Artificial Intelligence Language developed.
» Advancement in Parallel Processing.
» Advancement in Superconductor technology.
» These computers are much smaller in size than other generation computers

Disadvantages of Fifth Generation of Computer

» They can give more power to companies to watch what you are doing and even allow them to infect your computer.
» They tend to be sophisticated and complex tools.

Other Generation of compter are

  » First Generation of Computer (1940 to 1956): Using Vacuum Tubes
  » Second Generation of Computer (1956 to 1963): Using Transistors
  » Third Generation of Computer (1964 to 1971): Using Integrated Circuits
  » Fourth Generation of Computer (1971 to present): Using Microprocessors
