Computers help us do our work, get directions, check the weather, exercise, shop, and find out what's happening around the world. But who created them, and why? Packed with accessible information, fun facts and discussion starters, this book takes you from the earliest known counting systems such as the Incan quipu to the sophisticated algorithms behind AI, space travel and wearable tech. Along the way you’ll meet creators such as An Wang, Margaret Hamilton and Tim Berners-Lee and discover the impact of their inventions on our everyday lives.
