"Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer"

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. Although ENIAC was designed and primarily used to calculate artillery firing tables for the United States Army's Ballistic Research Laboratory, its first programs included a study of the feasibility of the thermonuclear weapon.
