Ada Augusta King, Condessa de Lovelace , atualmente conhecida como Ada Lovelace, foi uma matemática e escritora inglesa. Hoje é reconhecida principalmente por ter escrito o primeiro algoritmo para ser processado por uma máquina, a máquina analítica de Charles Babbage. Durante o período em que esteve envolvida com o projeto de Babbage, ela desenvolveu os algoritmos que permitiriam à máquina computar os valores de funções matemáticas, além de publicar uma coleção de notas sobre a máquina analítica. Por esse trabalho é considerada a primeira programadora de toda a história.Lovelace nasceu em 10 de dezembro de 1815 e é a única filha legítima do poeta Lord Byron e sua esposa Anne Isabella "Anabella" Byron, Lady Wentworth. Todos os outros filhos de Lorde Byron nasceram fora do casamento. Byron se separou da esposa um mês depois do nascimento de Ada e deixou a Inglaterra para sempre, quatro meses depois. Acabou morrendo doente durante a Guerra da Independência Grega, quando Ada tinha oito anos de idade. A mãe de Ada promoveu o interesse de Ada em matemática e lógica, em um esforço para impedi-la de desenvolver o que ela via como a insanidade de Lord Byron. Mas Ada permaneceu interessada em seu pai e, a seu pedido, foi enterrada ao lado dele quando morreu.Na juventude, seus talentos matemáticos levaram-na a uma relação de trabalho e de amizade com o colega matemático britânico Charles Babbage e, em particular, o trabalho de Babbage sobre a Máquina Analítica. Entre 1842 e 1843, ela traduziu um artigo do engenheiro militar italiano Luigi Federico Menabrea sobre o motor e complementou com um conjunto de sua própria autoria, que ela chamou de Anotações. Essas notas contêm um algoritmo criado para ser processado por máquinas, o que muitos consideram ser o primeiro programa de computador. Ela também desenvolveu uma visão sobre a capacidade dos computadores de irem além do mero cálculo ou processamento de números, enquanto outros, incluindo o próprio Babbage focavam apenas nessas capacidades. Sua mentalidade da "ciência poética" a levou a fazer perguntas sobre a Máquina Analítica e a examinar como os indivíduos e a sociedade se relacionam com a tecnologia como uma ferramenta de colaboração.Casou-se, aos 20 anos com William Lord King. King foi nomeado Conde de Lovelace em 1838, e Ada tornou-se Lady Lovelace. Ada morreu de câncer de útero, aos 36 anos.[carece de fontes?]

Citações Ada Lovelace

„God has not given to us (in this state of existence) more than very limited powers of expression of one's ideas and feelings“

— Ada Lovelace
Context: Circumstances have been such, that I have lived almost entirely secluded for some time. Those who are much in earnest and with single minds devoted to any great object in life, must find this occasionally inevitable.... You will wonder at having heard nothing from me; but you have experience and candour enough to perceive and know that God has not given to us (in this state of existence) more than very limited powers of expression of one's ideas and feelings... I shall be very desirous of again seeing you. You know what that means from me, and that it is no form, but the simple expression and result of the respect and attraction I feel for a mind that ventures to read direct in God's own book, and not merely thro' man's translation of that same vast and mighty work. In a letter to Andrew Crosse, as quoted in Eugen Kölbing's [https://archive.org/stream/englischestudien19leipuoft#page/157/mode/1up Englische Studien, Volume 19] (1894), Leipzig; O.R. Reisland, "Byron's Daughter", p. 157.

„I am more than ever now the bride of science. Religion to me is science, and science is religion. In that deeply-felt truth lies the secret of my intense devotion to the reading of God's natural works. It is reading Him. His will — His intelligence ; and this again is learning to obey and to follow (to the best of our power) that will! For he who reads, who interprets the Divinity with a true and simple heart, then obeys and submits in acts and feelings as by an impupulse and instinct. He can't help doing so. At least, it appears so to me.“

Context: Perhaps you have felt already, from the tone of my letter, that I am more than ever now the bride of science. Religion to me is science, and science is religion. In that deeply-felt truth lies the secret of my intense devotion to the reading of God's natural works. It is reading Him. His will — His intelligence; and this again is learning to obey and to follow (to the best of our power) that will!

„I do not regret the sufferings and peculiaties of my physical constitution. They have taught me, and continue to teach me, that which I think nothing else could have developed. It is a force and control put upon me by Providence which I must obey. And the effects of this continual disciple of facts are mighty. They tame the in the best sense of that word, and they fan into existence a pure, bright, holy, unselfish flame within that sheds cheerfulness and light on many.“

Context: With all my wiry power and strength, I am prone at times to bodily sufferings, connected chiefly with the digestive organs, of no common degree or king. I do not regret the sufferings and peculiaties of my physical constitution. They have taught me, and continue to teach me, that which I think nothing else could have developed. It is a force and control put upon me by Providence which I must obey. And the effects of this continual disciple of facts are mighty. They tame the in the best sense of that word, and they fan into existence a pure, bright, holy, unselfish flame within that sheds cheerfulness and light on many. — Ever yours truly. "A. A. Lovelace."
