Who Invented the Concept of Random Access Memory (RAM)

2Jay W. Forrester is generally credited as coming up with the concept of RAM. He was born in 1918, a native of Nebraska. The patent that is generally regarded as the one that kicked off RAM in its modern incarnation was Multicoordinate Digital Information Storage Device Random Access Memory: Patent Number 2,736,880. Without Forrester’s concept, the computer you’re reading this on would not be able to provide you with the information you’re reading, the ability to run the programs displaying that information or, for that matter, anything else that most users take for granted in the modern era.
