The First Remote Computation Is Demonstrated
The first remote computation -- from Dartmouth College to AT&T Bell Laboratories -- is demonstrated during a meeting of the American Mathematical Association. At Dartmouth, George Stibitz set up a terminal that allowed attendees to perform remote calculation by telegraph wire with the Complex Number Calculator in New York City.
Stibitz later developed more relay computers for use during World War II.
