“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.
