Charles Babbage was an English mathematician and engineer who designed the first general-purpose programmable computer. Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace, was an English mathematician who wrote the first program for Babbage’s Engine. In real life, the two met in 1833, became friends, and corresponded until Ada died of uterine cancer in 1852. Babbage never built his calculating machine.
But that’s so … ordinary. Sydney Padua wants you to imagine what might have happened if Lovelace hadn’t died young. Naturally, she would have teamed up with Babbage to FIGHT CRIME. Right?
