STAFF WORK: INVISIBLE NUMBERS

01

Course tutor ANDREW BAKER has created an illustrated newspaper chronicling the achievements of Ted Newman, the man who helped develop Alan Turing’s ideas for a stored-program computer into a working machine – the Pilot ACE.  The Pilot ACE was one of the world’s first stored-program digital computers. Based on Turing’s 1946 proposed outline for a computer, the ACE was arguably the world’s first ‘complete’ computer, and was the first on which processing capability was commercially exploited. You can learn more about the history of this machine HERE.

The paper was created as part of the E17 art exhibition INVISIBLE NUMBERS with historian Kristin Sibley in response to the theme STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics).
