Google doodles on Ada Lovelace 197th birthday

London: Google is paying tribute to “the mother of computer programming” Augusta Ada King, also known as Ada Lovelace, with a doodle on the occasion of her 197th birthday.

The doodle shows how the computers transformed from old to new ones, along with a woman who resembles Ada Lovelace.

The English mathematician and writer is mainly known for her work on Charles Babbage’s early mechanical general-purpose computer: the analytical engine.

Some scholars considered her the world’s first computer programmer for her notes on the engine include what is recognised as the first algorithm intended to be processed by a machine.

She died at the age of 36 on November 27, 1852 after battling uterine cancer.
