Charles Babbage and the difference engine
« on: May 24, 2012, 07:06:31 PM »
Charles Babbage is best remembered for his work on the design and manufacture of a mechanical calculator, the forerunner of a computer. After first constructing a “difference machine,” Babbage devoted the remainder of his life to the construction of a superior “analytic engine” capable of performing all mathematical operations. His work toward this goal laid the foundations of computer design used today. Partly due to lack of funding, however, the machine was never completed.....
