ENIAC unveiled as the first general-purpose computer
The University of Pennsylvania formally dedicates their room-filling computer that the press has dubbed a 'Giant Brain.' The six main programmers, all women, have initially programmed ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer) to run computations on the feasibility of the hydrogen bomb.

ENIAC was amongst the earliest electronic general-purpose computers made. It was Turing-complete, digital, and could solve "a large class of numerical problems" through reprogramming.
