I have just seen this sentence “Ist dies der Computer der Zukunft”.
I have never seen the word “dies” before but is it an alternative to das?


According to Collins easy learning german grammar (which I find useful):

Dies is often used to replace to replace the nominative and accusative cases of  diese and dieses when it is used as a pronoun.

You can look up dieser, which is the masculine nominative form of the above, in the Leo dictionary.
