wd:Q18389865

The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution is an overview of the history of computer science and the Digital Revolution. It was written by Walter Isaacson, and published in 2014 by Simon & Schuster. The book summarizes the contributions of several innovators who have made pivotal breakthroughs in computer technology and its applications—from the world's first computer programmer, Ada Lovelace, and Alan Turing's work in artificial intelligence, through the Information Age of the present. Although his book's focus is on individuals, Isaacson reminds readers that innovations are often the product of group collaboration. Innovators discussed in the book include Charles Babbage, Ada Lovelace, Vannevar Bush, Konrad Zuse, Alan Turing, Grace Hopper, John Mauchly, John von Neumann, J. C. R. Licklider, Doug Engelbart, Robert Noyce of Intel, Bill Gates and Paul Allen of Microsoft, Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs of Apple, Tim Berners-Lee, Larry Page of Google, Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia, and Lee Felsenstein of Osborne.
