...Babbage’s contribution to development of computer technology Introduction Computers, as we know them today have been oneof man’s greatest inventions from the earliest time possible. They have been a culmination of various machines created by a number of historical figures, whose main aim was to make life much easier for the human generation especially in the field of math and science. A mark in history was made by the tremendous capability of these machines, making a revolution in the working economy. Just by the click of a button, problems were automatically resolved in the most analytical and precise manner. This was not always the case in older times as we will come to understand... ?
