    Only legitimate child of Lord Byron, the worlds first computer programmer. The US department of defense created a programming language named in her honor.

    She was the first person to see the connection between punched cards and computer control. thus she is also the mom of the concept of mass storage and the IBM card.

    No... Read the article. Lord Byron's daughter. Designer of the first computer algorithm. DOD language named in her honor....

    One of the most important people in the science of computers.
