This was in a presentation I saw today. I wish the speaker had expanded on this and explained how all these people are linked to algorithms. #mscedc March 22, 2017 at 04:43PM
I managed to look into this a little bit after the conference. Something that struck me while looking at the picture presentation of the speaker was that all the pictures were of very old white men, except for Al-Khwarizmi, who was Arabic. I found a nice timeline with a representation of the history of algorithms. At least here they mentioned Ada Lovelace.
