Product description

Review

“Ada's Legacy is an original and valuable contribution to the commemoration of the bicentennial (of her birth). In summary, the twelve chapters in the volume Ada's Legacy illustrate key aspects which span from science to technology, literature and includes collaboration, feminism, technical excellence, creativity, and controversy. The topics covered in the book are indeed a large variety, so it is possible that Ada’s Legacy doesn’t hold the interest of each reader uniformly from the beginning to the end, but each reader will find chapters that allow him/her to deepen aspects of the complex phenomenon of Ada.” – Luigia Carlucci Aiello in Artificial Intelligence (Elsevier)

About the Author

Robin Hammerman is Teaching Assistant Professor in the College of Arts and Letters at Stevens Institute of Technology. Her research and teaching interest in Ada Lovelace began during the first years of her service to the Byron Society of America as Director of Membership and Academic Services as well as when she began teaching courses to engineering students at Stevens such as Science Fiction and Literature, Science and Technology. Hammerman's ongoing commitment to promote interdisciplinary engagement among women in STEM fields inspired her to organize the first international conference on the legacy of Ada Lovelace in October 2013.

Andrew L. Russell is Associate Professor of History and Director of the Program in Science & Technology Studies in the College of Arts & Letters at Stevens Institute of Technology. He is the author of Open Standards and the Digital Age: History, Ideology, and Networks (Cambridge University Press, 2014) and has published over a dozen articles and book chapters on the history of the Bell System, the American system of voluntary standards, modular design, and the computer networks such as Cyclades and the Internet. Russell currently serves as the Chair of SIGCIS, an international collective of historians of computing and information.
