Ada Lovelace, in full Ada King, countess of Lovelace, original name Augusta Ada Byron, Lady Byron, (born December 10, 1815, Piccadilly Terrace, Middlesex [now in London], England—died November 27, 1852, Marylebone, London), English mathematician, an associate of Charles Babbage, for whose prototype of a digital computer she created a program. She has been called the first computer programmer.
Inspiration for the major and minor currency units used by Cardano, there are 1,000,000 Lovelace per ₳. You may also spot another link with the project phase prior to Shelley (the one we are in now).
As an aside we can expect some announcements from IOHK and the Cardano Foundation to co-incide with Ada’s birthday on the 10th.
