Ada's Algorithm : How Lord Byron's Daughter Launched the Digital Age Through the Poetry of Numbers, Paperback / softback Book

Ada's Algorithm : How Lord Byron's Daughter Launched the Digital Age Through the Poetry of Numbers Paperback / softback

Description

Through the infamous divorce of her parents, Ada Lovelace became the most talked-about child in Georgian Britain.

This riveting biography tells the extraordinary yet little known story of her life and times-when mathematics was as fashionable as knitting among women and Ada became the world's first computer programmer.

But for her era's view on gender, Ada would single-handedly have started the digital age more than two centuries ago.
