Early life and education

It may seem odd to call someone born in 1815 a computer scientist, but that is what Ada Lovelace become. Her life changed forever on June 5 1833, when, aged 17, she met Charles Babbage. This was not something many girls Adas age could ever do, but as an aristocrat she enjoyed better opportunities than most. Babbage was Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, position once held by Isaac Newton and held more recently by Stephen Hawking. Babbage learnt that both Lady Byron and her daughter were knowledgeable about Mathematics and invited them to see a small-scale version of the calculating machine he was working on, called the difference engine. Babbage had become fed up with people making mistakes in lengthy calculations, and his idea was to build infallible steam-driven or hand-crank calculating machine. Ada was completely captivated by the concept, but there was little she could do to help Babbage with his work. However, she sent a message to Babbage requesting copies of machine blueprints, because she was determined to understand how they work. Jacquard loom and punch cards. First step in machine language.

These were highly unusual activities for an aristocratic woman and her daughter! An important part of Adas education was to see Jacquard loom in operation. Jacquard loom was a machine that produced textiles with patterns woven into them. Joseph Marie Jacquard had invented it in 1801. Jacquard loom was controlled by punch cards, with one card equal to one row of textile being weave. If the card was punch, loom thread would be raise. If the card was not punch, loom thread would be left alone. In other words, punch cards issue instructions to the machine. They were simple language, or putting it another way, machine code. Ada continues her independent pursuit of mathematical knowledge. She becomes friends with one of the finest female mathematicians of her time, Mary Somerville, who discussed modern Mathematics with her, set her higher-level Mathematics problems, and talked in detail about Charles Babbages ' different engine. In 1835, at the age of 19, Ada married William King, Earl of Lovelace, with whom she would have three children between 1836 and 1839. In 1841 she began working on Mathematics again, and was given advanced work by Professor Augustus De Morgan of University College London. She also continued to learn advanced Mathematics through correspondence with Mary Somerville. All the time, she keeps Babbages difference engine in mind.
