Storyboard Text

  • Ada Lovelace The Honorable Augusta Ada Byron was born on December 10, 1815 in London, England.
  • Ada’s father was the great poet Lord George Byron, 6th Baron Byron and her mother was Anne Isabelle Millbanke, 11th Baroness Wentworth . She never knew her father because he abandoned her when she was one month old. Most of Ada’s childhood was spent in sickness. She experienced headaches and suffered from measles which left her bedridden for a year. Ada’s mother left her in the care of her grandmother Judith, Lady Milbanke who doted upon young Ada. Ada was watched throughout her young life, watching to see if she showed her father’s immoral tendencies. Her mother began laying out the course of education Ada would follow – an education that was not based on society frivolity but on mathematics and science.
  • Ada’s education began at the age 4. Tutors taught her mathematics and science. Her mother felt these courses would counteract any tendencies that Ada may have inherited from her father. Her tutor, Mary Somerville introduced her to Charles Babbage who was known as the father of computers. At 12, Ada drew up plans to build a winged flying apparatus after studying bird anatomy. Her drawing was in the shape of a horse. A steam engine would be placed inside and a huge pair of wings attached on the outside theoretically enabling the horse to fly. At 17, Ada became the protégé of Charles Babbage. Ada translated an article written by Luigi Menabrea about Babbage’s theoretical analytical engine into English. Her paper included notes on how the machine could be coded to calculate Bernoulli numbers. Bernoulli numbers are considered the first algorithm to be carried out by a machine – Ada’s notes are considered to be the first computer program.
  • William King-Noel born February 21, 1805 was an English nobleman and scientist who in 1835 married nineteen year old Augusta Ada Byron. Together they had three children: Byron King-Noel, Viscount Ocham and 12th Baron Wentworth (5/12/1836 – 9/1/1862) Anne Blunt, 15th Baroness Wentworth (9/22/1837 – 12/15/1917) Ralph King-Milbanke, 2nd Earl of Lovelace (7/2/1839 – 8/28/1906) Countess Ada Lovelace died on November 27, 1852 at Marylebone, London, England. She was only thirty-six years old.

  • Ada's collection of notes was published in Richard Taylor’s Scientific Memoirs. Her description of Babbage’s Analytical Engine, instructions she wrote, and her speculations of its possible uses were published in 1843. Those “NOTES” were the first piece of evidence of Babbage's invention. His Analytical Engine required a human programmer to set the initial values to enter data that had been computed and set into columns. “Operational cards” were used to perform arithmetic on numerical data and respond to a symbol that represented that data. Ada said, the Analytical Engine could compute with general information and its ability to follow the instructions supplied on the operation cards. One set of cards determined the instructions for the program; the other was used to enter the data to be calculated.
  • Education
  • Ada was designed for long-lived applications and embedded systems that consider safety and security are crucial for companies and their operations. ADA is used by: the US Department of Defense, Aviation Industry, Medical Industry, Air Traffic Management, Railway Transportation, Data Communications, Desktop and Web Applications, Banking and Financial Systems, Shipboard Control Systems, Communication and Navigational Satellites and Receivers just to name a few. I think it is safe to say ADA securely keeps information in the hands of the users.
