Abstract

Dr Oliver Duke-Williams (UCL Centre for Digital Humanities) will talk about the ACE, a break-through example of a stored-program computer, outlining some of the milestones leading up to it. He will describe how it was programmed, how some of the unusual hardware inside worked, and why we can be grateful that programming has become easier.
