ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer) was the first general-purpose electronic computer. It was a Turing-complete digital computer capable of being reprogrammed to solve a full range of computing problems. The six women who did most of the programming of ENIAC were inducted in 1997 into the Women in Technology International Hall of Fame. As they were called by each other in 1946, they were Kay McNulty, Betty Jennings, Betty Snyder, Marlyn Wescoff, Fran Bilas and Ruth Lichterman.
Jean Jennings Bartik, one of the first computer programmers and a pioneering forerunner in a technology that came to be known as software.
Betty Jean Jennings The ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer) was the world’s first electronic computer. It was a joint project between the U.S. Army and the University of Pennsylvania. Six women, including Betty Jean Jennings was one of the world's first “computers” (a job title, not a machine) hired by the university. At the time, the computer was used to calculate ballistics trajectories for World War II.

Apollo–Soyuz: A cold war handshake in space, 40 years on. One small handshake, one giant leap for future space collaboration. The space race was driven by Cold War politics: without the Soviet Union and the US battling to outmanoeuvre each other, we wouldn’t have had Sputnik, Vostok or Apollo. But amid all the rhetoric and duplicity, the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project – a mission now almost forgotten – was able to unite the two space programmes via a brief window that opened...

What do machines dream of? New images released by Google give us one potential answer: hypnotic landscapes of buildings, fountains and bridges merging into one. The pictures, which veer from beautiful to terrifying, were created by the company’s image recognition neural network, which has been “taught” to identify features such as buildings, animals and objects in photographs.
