October 11 is celebrated worldwide as Ada Lovelace Day to celebrate the contribution of women in STEM.

Ada Lovelace was the first person to recognise the full potential of a 'computing machine,' implying that computers had applications beyond pure calculations.

Ada Lovelace worked with Charles Babbage to develop a calculating machine named the Difference Engine.

They later built the world's first computer called the Analytical Engine.

Ada Lovelace Day is celebrated to inspire young women to work, research, and innovate in the field of science, technology, mathematics, and engineering.

Ada Lovelace's notes inspired Alan Turing to create the Automatic Computing Engine (ACE).
