Part of our economic development is the use of technology. The use of internet, gadgets and appliances are part of our daily lives. We are all part of technological advancement and many of us benefits well by the technology. Technology plays a vital role in our society and economy. Being part of the society, people needs to adapt! People needs to cope up with such advancement! We continuously using of cellphones as our communication and games, collecting various information in the internet and performing daily task and job the help of technology. We are capable to work easily because of technology. We are using it but I know that many of us don't know the people behind our future.

I gather some information based on the people behind our technology and I wanted them to acknowledge because there discoveries and inventions lead to the welfare of our society. Without their sacrifices, we are still ignorant as of now. I want to give a gratitude for:

Vinton Gray Cerf - Father of Internet
Cerf is an American internet pioneer, who is recognized as one of the fathers of internet, sharing this title with TCP/IP co-inventor Bob Kahn. His contributions have been acknowledged and lauded, repeatedly, with honorary degrees and awards that include the National Medal of Technology, the Turing Award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Marconi Prize and membership in the National Academy of Engineering.
Timothy John Berners-Lee - Father of World Wide Web
also known as TimBL, is an English engineer and computer scientist, best known as the inventor of the World Wide Web. He is currently a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Oxford.
Marty Cooper - Father of the mobile phone
Cooper filed a patent for the 'radio telephone system' in 1973, while working at Motorola, and was the first person to make a call on a portable cell phone.
Tony Fadell - Father of iPod
Fadell had an idea, pitched it around, was hired by Apple and the rest is history. He started as an outside consultant, became the first member of Apple's iPod hardware engineering team in 2001, and is now senior vice president of the iPod Division.
John Backus - Father of FORTRAN
The former IBM computer scientist developed FORTRAN (Formula Translator) in the 50s. FORTRAN is considered the world's first widely used computer programming language.
Vic Hayes - Father of Wi-Fi
Hayes is a Dutch-born electrical engineer who worked at NCR Corp. and later Agere. He's known less for technological wizardry than for his diplomatic skills. As chairman of the IEEE 802.11 working group for wireless LANs, he was instrumental in developing the standards that led to the success of 802.11 wireless LANs. Today, he is Senior Research Fellow at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands.
John Cioffi - Father of DSL
Is a Stanford professor who was intent on coming up with a way to deploy broadband over copper wires and developed asymmetrical digital subscriber line (DSL) technology. He left Stanford in 1991 to found Amati Communications Inc.
James Gosling - Father of Java
Canada-born Gosling was born to code. While working on a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie-Mellon, he wrote a multiprocessor version of Unix. At Sun, he is credited with inventing the Java programming language in 1991.

Thank you for making our life more easily, we owe a great debt to you. You are the foundations of the development of our economy.

You forgot to mention Satoshi Nakamoto.Our future is connected to bitcoin and the blockchain.
Perhaps you should mention Edison and Tesla.All the computers,smart phones and internet can`t run without electricity.I don`t know why you are making this thread.We all are paying tribute to the fathers of the modern technology every day.

We really know that the people behind our future, are those people maker of all newly invented technology, and mostly to our very own original founder of bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto. In cryptocurrency like bitcoin, we can surely that our future will become good when it comes to financial stability and also our economic status globally will rise because of bitcoin business.

I did not include Satoshi Naamoto because all lf here are his fanatic and all of us are making some research about his contribution in the technology yet we must also appreciate his invention, the bitcoin!

Yes, but most of them are not known by the people nowadays! The youth to be specific! They are just using the gadget and technology but they never realize how it be invented. We should bear in our mind that without these person, we never experience an easier life unlike before.

How about Noyce, Moore (Moore's Law) and Groove - Intel Corporation.

I think those guys really shape the way how they shape computing and now we are enjoying their chips on every Desktop or Laptop we used to connect to the Internet?

And to quote:

Quote
What is 'Moore's Law'
Moore's law refers to an observation made by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore in 1965. He noticed that the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits had doubled every year since their invention.

Read Moore's Law https://www.investopedia.com/terms/m/mooreslaw.asp#ixzz59Ib2Y2hj

And if we are going to apply it to bitcoin;

I agree with Ranly123, specifically the bold text part. IMO, the future that they (people on your list) have influenced to is our present time and not our future.
When I read the topic title, I thought I could see a list of young and presently active person/s which contribute on the development of new technologies.

Nothing against anyone on your list but do you ever get an impression our standards for innovation, progress and invention are steadily being lowered to produce an illusion that these things are not diminishing over time?

Looking at your list James Gosling created java but as far as I know he did not pioneer the interpreted programming language or bytecode. He might not even have pioneered the JIT (just in time) compiler. His contributions may well have been nil. John Cioffi also likely pioneered nothing. He took existing technology and adapted it with a few mild tweaks, nothing new there. Vic Hayes the same.

Many of those names on your list contributed nothing new and only built on the shoulders of those who came before them. Did someone at google search for the least inventive and least innovative names they could find to compile the list? Perhaps I am imagining things?   Huh

You forgot to mention Satoshi Nakamoto.Our future is connected to bitcoin and the blockchain.
Perhaps you should mention Edison and Tesla.All the computers,smart phones and internet can`t run without electricity.I don`t know why you are making this thread.We all are paying tribute to the fathers of the modern technology every day.

All Edison did was produce the lightbulb and lobby politicians to lay electric cables everywhere.

The real hero of the electric story is Italian physicist Alessandro Volta, who invented the early battery in 1800, and then produced and sent a current.

So you you think future is all about software? I think the code can't solve some important problems in human life.You also missed the satoshi nakamoto who is maybe the best one among them.

I think you should mention Charles Babbage, the man who originated the concept of a programmable computer. He is considered the "father of the computer".
Most of the people you mentioned are all about software, but I think that hardware is equally important, and it started way back before mobile phones, it all started with Abacus Smiley

You are right fellow! I salute to these men and special mention, Satoshi Nakamoto. For without him, crypto world will not also be possible.I also wanted to add Charles Babbage, the father of computer. All of these great men help make our life better

If we are talking hardware, William Shockley and John Bardeen of bell labs too deserve a mention for the first transistor. The device that eventually enabled all logic devices.

Although as Hydrogen so ruefully pointed out earlier, It gets me every time to imagine how those early innovators would have worked.
Nothing against anyone on your list but do you ever get an impression our standards for innovation, progress and invention are steadily being lowered to produce an illusion that these things are not diminishing over time?
Today it is all about snazzy IDE's with tools and pre-built libraries ready to be exploited to make the next idea come to fruition. But like you pointed out, it does look like we no longer have that age of fundamental discoveries and inventions.. Sad When ENIAC would have been built with its thousands of vacuum tubes occupying several hundred square feet. Those people really were giants.

How those people built on the capabilities of the first machines to gradually reach to the first microprocessors. How they would have programmed the instruction set for the first microprocessors in real bits and bytes, making them come to life. The ALU, I/O, 8 KB of EEPROM and a few LED's interacting to create the first illusion of a response from the machine!! Shocked Such wonders they would have been. Gradually all of that complexity got abstracted away from bits to mnemonics to programming languages and now to function blocks based IDE's..

It is admirable that we are making programming more and more accessible but i frankly feel bad that the fundamentals are no longer as accessible as they would have been back in the days.. And that we never got to be a part of it..LOL..

Luca Pacioli - In 1494, the first book on double-entry accounting was published by Luca Pacioli. Since Pacioli was a Franciscan

 friar, he might be referred to simply as Friar Luca. While Friar Luca is regarded as the "Father of Accounting," he did not

invent the system. Source : https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2320658

The man who is recognized as the creator of basic accounting is Luca Pacioli, an Italian mathematician and writer. Pacioli

developed a system comprehensible enough for school-age boys to understand; he recorded this system in a textbook titled

Summa de Arithmetica, Geometria, Proportionate Proportionalita.
