Abstract:

"A dramatized biography of Lady Ada Lovelace, daughter of Romantic poet Lord Byron and mathematics genius who developed what became the world's first computer language 100 years before computers. Ada's story is told through Emmy, a contemporary computer scientist who is researching artificial life.

Realizing how parallel their lives are, she embarks on the task of "saving" Ada as the lines between the past and present, virtual reality and reality blur in the process."--Container.
