    English mathematician Charles Babbage (1792–1871) designed a mechanical computing machine called the “analytical engine.”It is considered the forerunner of the digital computer, a programmable electronic device that stores, retrieves, and processes data.While attending Cambridge University in 1812, Babbage conceived of the idea of a machine that could calculate data more rapidly than existing computing methods, and without human error.The Industrial Revolution (a period of technological development; c. 1750–c. 1850) had been underway for more than half a century, and the world was becoming increasingly complex. Human errors in mathematical tables posed serious problems for many rapidly growing industries. After graduating from Cambridge, Babbage returned to the idea of developing a device to facilitate computation.
