On Episode 21 -- kicking off Season 3 of Creative Distillation! -- Brad and Jeff speak with Chuck Eesley, Associate Professor at the Stanford University School of Engineering. While enjoying some negronis mixed with Ada Lovelace gin, Chuck shares a brief but fascinating history of Ada, widely considered to be the first computer programmer (from the mid-19th century!). Tangentially, Brad brings up bitters and Jeff's over/underuse of them in this particular(ly strong) cocktail.This segues to an insightful (and fun) conversation about Chuck and Yong Suk Lee's research on the efficacy of university entrepreneurship programs. The results may surprise you.Learn more about Chuck: https://www.linkedin.com/in/eesley/Read the paper: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/smj.3246 Comments/criticism/suggestions/feedback?

What would have happened if Ada Lovelace was funded?

One Vision

In 2020, U.S. VC firms deployed a vast amount of capital, but not only did the portion of funds to female founders drop, so did the funding to female-led startups. As the impact of the COVID-19 continues to be felt, closing the global gender gap has also increased by a generation from 99.5 years to 135.6 years, according to the World Economic Forum. In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley chat with Tracy Chadwell, Founding Partner of 1843 Capital, an early stage venture capital firm, on funding, diversity, and longevity tech.

1P 199 - Ada Lovelace - Legacy of the Analytical Engine

1 Player Podcast

Episode 199 is about a sneaky little PnP game not found on BGG.. not exactly anyway.  This is a legacy version of the game Ada Lovelace: Consulting Mathematician (which is on BGG).  Julius found out about this game and goes through the legacy experience.  Note, there is every the slightest spoiler in this, but this game doesn't have a lot to spoil.  Check it out.. it sounds interesting!

World First Computer Programmer | Ada Lovelace | మొట్టమొదటి కంప్యూటర్ ప్రోగ్రామర్ । ఏడా లవ్ లేస్

KiranPrabha Telugu Talk Shows

Augusta Ada Byron, Countess of Lovelace, Ada Lovelace (10 December 1815 – 27 November 1852) was an English mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. She is believed by some to be the first to recognize that the machine had applications beyond pure calculation, and to have published the first algorithm intended to be carried out by such a machine. As a result, she is often regarded as the first to recognize the full potential of computers and as one of the first computer programmers. In this episode KiranPrabha narrates the life sketch of Ada Lovelace

Restart Radio Republished: Ada Lovelace Day and the stories of women in STEM

The Restart Project Podcast

To celebrate Ada Lovelace Day, we’re republishing this 2018 interview with Suw Charman-Anderson, founder of the Ada Lovelace Day (ALD), which annually supports and increases the visibility of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers. First, we discuss how ALD started and how it came to be such a huge initiative, with international events happening each year. We then ask Suw why she chose Ada Lovelace as a symbol for this project. She tells us the story of Ada, a 19th-century mathematician who worked with polymath Charles Babbage on the design of the ‘Analytical Engine’, a vision of the first mechanical computer. Ada has been considered the first ever computer programmer, with a computing language now named after her. Then, we talk about the importance of role models for girls and women to go into science. Girls and women are still underrepresented in STEM, especially in fields such as physics or computing. Also, the historical contributions of women to science and tech have commonly been overlooked. At Restart, we are interested in engaging people with technology from early on – we chat with Suw about the need to engage girls from a very young age to actually change the gender disparity in STEM. Not only to motivate girls to go into these fields of education, but also to actually continue their careers after their training. Suw walks us through her own career in science, having graduated from Geology and struggling to find her professional path. She went into publishing and journalism, and reminds people that it is fine to have a less conventional career path. Before ALD, Suw co-founded the Open Rights Group in the UK, which campaigns for digital rights. We relate their early work on intellectual property law to the US Right to Repair initiative, discussing whether we actually own our devices when our access to repair is denied. And of course, whether Lovelace would’ve been a repairer and user of free and open-source software. If you’d like to get involved you can join us at a (future) Rosie skillshare, for/by women and non-binary people. Links: Finding Ada: ALD Finding Ada: Who was Ada?
