A computer is defined as an electronic device that receives information and data, automatically stores it and retrieves it at any time, and uses it in a useful manner. The computer converts different types of numbers and solves intractable mathematical equations very quickly and with high accuracy.

The importance of computers is recognised in our day to day activities. We will be taking a look at some of them:

Education: The use of computers in the field of education is one of its most important benefits in daily human life. It is one of the most important educational tools used by teachers and students.

The computer is used in the field of education in schools and universities, where hard disks and magnetic disks are used to explain the lessons, and drawings and films are used to deliver information to students, as well as the students retain the information in order to retrieve it at a later time.

The computer has restructured the education system. Schools, colleges, and almost all educational institutions use at least one computer each semester, and many colleges and universities offer online degrees to students.

Many schools and colleges around the world are now using computer and Internet technologies to teach students digitally and creatively, as the use of the computer in the classroom unleashes creativity and imagination among students.  Through computer programs, you can learn more deeply and more accurately, such as: drawing tools, spreadsheets, music, video lectures, and PowerPoint presentations.

This has led to the creation of new models of work in the field of education, such as: small classes, smart classrooms, and digital classrooms.

Medicine: The computer is widely used in the field of health care, as it has become an integral part of hospitals, laboratories, and medical clinics. 

The following are some examples of computer uses in health care:

  • The computer is used to archive patients’ records and the treatments they receive.
  • It facilitates the medical diagnosis of patients and monitors their health conditions.
  • It is an effective medical tool, which allows monitoring of the heart rate and blood pressure of a sick person. 
  • It helps in performing some types of surgeries.

The Internet: The computer is used to access the Internet, and the Internet is used as a means of communication between people in all countries of the world. 

With the help of the Internet you keep in touch with your friends and family, computers provide this to you easily, and the Internet is also used to search for information. You just have to type a word in the search engine and open many pages to provide all the information about the specific word, and you can also watch movies, videos, and news on computers connected to the Internet.

Communication: Computers are one of the main tools that allow communication between people regardless of their location, as the computer has become an effective communication tool that brings together family members, relatives, and friends, and allows job interviews to be conducted virtually. This is done by connecting the computer to the Internet, and then using some programs and tools to conduct Internet communications, whether visual or even audio.

A computer connected to the Internet allows the use of various social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and others. These means allow users to interact with each other by sharing photos, videos, and other activities.

Business: The business sector is one of the most important sectors in which the computer is used, due to the numerous and important services it provides for employers or workers.

Through the computer, many different actions can be performed,  such as conducting online sales, transferring funds between accounts, completing large account operations, and other institutional work that requires speed and accuracy.

The computer also provides business companies with the ability to create economic forecast plans based on some of the data it is provided with. In addition, corporate computers provide protection for their data and information from theft or vandalism.

Transportation: The computer is used in transportation, where the routes of transportation lines are controlled, as well as booking travel tickets via the computer and recently via the Internet, and booking international airline tickets anywhere in the world via the Internet.

The computer is used to control transportation, determine the take-off and direction of aircraft, and store information about workers in the field of transportation.

In summary, a computer converts different types of numbers and solves intractable mathematical equations very quickly and with high accuracy and its importance is recognised in our day to day activities.
