Computing machine, now known as computer, used increasingly from the 1920s, refers to any machine that does the work of a human computer, i.e. any machine that calculates in accordance with effective methods.

During the late 1940s and early 1950s, with the advent of electronic computing machines, the phrase 'computing machine' gradually gave way simply to 'computer', initially usually with the prefix 'electronic' or 'digital'.
