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.
