Who’s Ada Lovelace? She was the brilliant daughter of English poet Lord Byron. In the 1840s she translated an Italian report on Charles Babbage’s (steam driven!) Analytical Engine. Her accompanying notes included an algorithm that’s regarded as the first computer program. She mused that eventually machines could compose music and create visual art.

I’ve written several articles about this enigmatic female mathematician.
