Ada Lovelace Day
Today marks Ada Lovelace Day, an international celebration of the achievements of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).
Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) was founded in 2009 by Suw Charman-Anderson and aims to create new role models to encourage more girls into STEM careers and support those women already working in STEM.
Ada was an English mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage’s proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. She recognised that the machine had applications beyond pure calculation, and created the first algorithms intended to be carried out by such a machine. As a result, she is often regarded as the first to recognise the full potential of a ‘’computing machine’’ and the first computer programmer.
Today we’d like to spotlight some of our female Data Scientists here at LoopMe. Find out about Yarsoslava and Maryna’s roles, responsibilities and why they pursued a career in STEM.
