10 Things You May Not Know About Ada Lovelace

The Jacquard loom was a machine that produced textiles with patterns woven into them. Joseph Marie Jacquard had invented it in Just as it was rare at the time for a woman like Milbanke to have an interest in mathematics, it was very unusual for her to provide such a good education, particularly a scientific one, for her daughter.

She also claimed that Babbage could do better than the numerical computations. It is this fundamental transition from a machine which is a number cruncher to a machine for manipulating symbols according to rules that is the fundamental transition from calculation to computation—to general-purpose computation—and looking back from the present high ground of modern computing, if we are looking and sifting history for that transition, then that transition was made explicitly by Ada in that paper.

Ada is rigorously schooled in science, logic, and mathematics and forbidden to see any portraits of her father until her twentieth birthday.

Despite her short life, she made a huge impact on the earth. Not only is there no evidence that Ada ever prepared a program for the Analytical Engine, but her correspondence with Babbage shows that she did not have the knowledge to do so. She is buried next to him at the Church of St.

Walter Isaacson ascribes Lovelace's insight regarding the application of computing to any process based on logical symbols to an observation about textiles: She also continued to learn advanced mathematics through correspondence with Mary Somerville.

A Funny Thing Happened on Ada Lovelace Day…

Later on, in the same year, she reviewed a research publication on Animal Magnetism but was never published. But he agrees that Ada was the only person to see the potential of the analytical engine as a machine capable of expressing entities other than quantities.

It can do whatever we know how to order it to perform. She examined the anatomy of birds to determine the right proportion between the wings and the body. The historian Benjamin Woolley theorised that: But, like her mother, Lovelace excelled in mathematics, and was encouraged by another female mathematician, Mary Somerville.

In her notes, she wrote: Babbage was the Father of Computer, and the two became professional friends.Watch a video about the fascinating life of Ada Lovelace, who is considered the grandmother of computing - even though she lived in the early s.
