Calculating Ada: The Countess of Computing
  • Calculating Ada: The Countess of Computing (2015)
  • Documentary

Born in the early 19th century, Ada was a countess of the realm, a scandalous socialite and an 'enchantress of numbers'. The film is an enthralling tale of how a life infused with brilliance, but blighted by illness and gambling addiction, helped give rise to the modern era of computing.
