Charles Babbage and the Computer and of Course, Ada

Public Speaker Lucy Simister talks about Charles Babbage and the Computer and of Course, Ada

This talk came about after I had written the book Charles Babbage From the Beginning. The talk follows the book and it is about his life and times and includes his ancestry along with his fascinating life story including the inspiration for building the computer. I also include details of Babbage’s work with his accomplice the mathematician Ada Byron, Countess of Lovelace.
