Ada's Algorithm

This new biography tells for the first time the story of the woman who, alongside Charles Babbage, invented the world's first computer. The daughter of Lord Byron, Ada was the visionary who recognised the true potential of Babbage's of cog-wheel computer, The Analytical Engine. She demonstrated to the world that computers wouldn't merely be adding machines, but that they would be able to think. Ada and Babbage may have been colleagues, but they were also the closest of friends. Though she was 20 years his junior, they develope lasting relationship that blossomed into romance. Babbage was a genius and Ada was a woman with a singular vision, unconstrained by her by her time. Here we learn of their friendship and extraordinary legacy.
