In 1842, Charles was invited to give a seminar at the University of Turin about his analytical engine. Luigi Menabrea a young Italian engineer, wrote up Babbages lecture in French, and Babbage asked Ada to translate it into English. She also added some notes and explanations to the original.. teteg.13
