Ada Lovelace: The Making of a Computer Scientist

Sometimes referred to as the world’s first computer programmer, Ada Lovelace has become an icon for women in technology. But how did she acquire the knowledge and expertise to become a pioneer of computer science? The answer lies in the archives of Oxford’s Bodleian Library, which reveals a talented and inquisitive child growing into a serious scientist with a remarkable knowledge of cutting edge mathematics and scientific developments.

Professor Ursula Martin, Fellow of Wadham College, Oxford.  Professor Martin is recently retired from Oxford’s Mathematical Institute, where she researched a variety of topics at the intersection of mathematics and computer science. Her work on Ada Lovelace has let to several papers and a recent book, Ada Lovelace: the making of a computer scientist.
