    Summary

    This is a history of computing from its earliest days, when individual mathematicians worked as ‘computers’ making calculations for their rulers, to the ubiquitous pocket-sized devices of the modern day. Subjects range from Babbage’s difference engine to the creation of the Colossus in the codebreaking efforts of the Second World War to artificial intelligence and the new risks presented by cybercrime.
