Bio:

Lady Lovelace was the sponsor of pioneer Charles Babbage, the 19th century inventor of the Difference and Analytical Engines, the earliest direct progenitors of modern computers. It was Lovelace who first realized that by using punch cards (then popular with the Jacquard looms of the day), Babbage could program his machines to perform different tasks.
