Ada ByronIn soli 36 anni di vita, la giovane nobildonna vittoriana Augusta Ada Byron, contessa di Lovelace, ha lasciato un segno indelebile nella storia dell’informatica: è ricordata come la prima programmatrice della storia.

Recenti studi, tendono a ridimensionare il suo ruolo di programmatrice, e in questo episodio de “Le signore del digitale” ne ripercorreremo l’affascinante vita a fianco di Charles Babbage, il matematico inglese inventore dei primi calcolatori meccanici, le macchine differenziali e analitiche.

In questo viaggio scopriremo che poco importa se Ada è stata davvero la prima programmatrice della storia, perché il suo contributo visionario è addirittura superiore ad un complesso algoritmo per il calcolo dei numeri di Bernoulli.


1) Mi sono reso conto di aver usato sempre un termine scorretto quando mi sono riferito in italiano alla Difference Engine. La traduzione corretta è “macchina differenziale” e non “delle differenze”. Scusate.

2) Seppur come affermato nell’episodio, i tentativi di rianimazione dei cadaveri con l’elettricità fossero comuni nel XIX secolo, è piuttosto difficile pensare che Charles Babbage abbia scritto la SUA autobiografia, vent’anni dopo la SUA morte. Babbage ha scritto l’autobiografia vent’anni dopo la morte di Ada Byron.
