Abstract

Edmund Berkeley established himself as an influential force in the early development of computer science. This article examines Berkeley's work with symbolic logic and explores how this knowledge shaped his ideas about early electronic computers. It further explores how Berkeley applied symbolic logic and human reasoning to the design of relay computers, especially machines designed for the insurance industry.
