BEIJING, Dec. 18, according to foreign media reports, computer pioneer Evelyn Berezin died on Dec. 8 at the age of 93. Her most well-known achievement was the invention of the first computerized word processor, which completed editing, deleting, copying and pasting functions for the first time.
According to reports, one of Beressings early achievements was the design of a ticket booking system for United Airlines, serving 60 cities in the United States, with only one second of response time, the system has operated without fail in 11 years.
In 1968, Beressing invented the first computerized word processor. At that time, IBM had produced a relatively backward word processor for several years. For the first time, she used semiconductor chips to make word processing truly computerized, which was not as efficient as IBM could.
The original version of Beressings word processor had no screen, and its appearance was the size of a washing machine. After repeated improvements, it showed significant improvements in screen and other design.
