Ada was born 200 years ago. Her parents were part of the aristocracy, and her father was the famous poet, Lord Byron (who I studied in high school and college).
Her parents separated when Ada was just a baby, and her mother was a bit disillusioned…maybe even a bit bitter.
, mother convinced he was insane. Mother pushed mathematics and logic. She seem to idealize her father, and thought to combine poetry and math She died of cancer at 35
Charles Babbage created the concept…never built until this century.
