Who is known as the father of computing and why?




 CHARLES BABBAGE was an extraordinarily talented scientist, mathematician, economist and engineer.The following are the details of charles babbage                                     

FULL NAME: Charles Babbage
NICK NAME: Father Of Computing
BORN ON: December 26,1791,in Surrey,England
DIED ON: October 18,1871 in London,England 
EDUCATION: Cambridge University
KEY ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Produced working prototypes of machines that computed and printed mathematical tables.
SPOUSE: Georgiana Whitmore
CHILDREN: 8,3 of whom survived to adulthood (Duglad,Benjiman,and Henry)
FAMOUS QUOTE: "No person will deny that the highest degree of attainable accuracy is an object to be desired,and it is generally found that the last advances toeards precision require a greater devotion of time,labour,and expense,than those which precede them."
BEST KNOWN TODAY FOR: Inventing two types of cogwheel calculating machine

                                                   He is best known today - as he was in his lifetime - for inventing two types of cogwheel calculating machines.
The first, known as the Difference Engine, was designed to print reliable, accurate mathematical tables and so solve a serious problem of his day - these tables, compiled manually, were riddled with mistakes.
 The second cogwheel brain, which Babbage called the Analytical Engine, was nothing less than a mechanical digital computer. It contained many of the features found in modern computers, including a memory and a processor. It even had a punched-card control system, which Babbage borrowed from the Jacquard loom.
