Charles Babbage and Ada, Countess of Lovelace,  lived in the London of Dickens and Prince Albert (and knew them both). A hundred  years before some of the best minds in the world used the resources of a nation to build a internal linkdigital computer, these two eccentric   inventor-mathematicians internal linkdreamed of building their "Analytical Engine."  He constructed a partial prototype and she used it, with notorious lack of success, in a scheme to win a fortune at the horse races.

- Ada Lovelace, December 1841
