Chris Horn - Entrepreneur, Investor and Academic - talks about Ireland’s early Computer Pioneer, Percy Ludgate

October 4, 2022

We’re delighted to talk with Chris Horn, Entrepreneur, Investor and Academic about a surprising topic -  Ireland’s early, and relatively unknown, Computer Pioneer,  Percy Ludgate

As you will hear Ludgate proposed a Computer Design in 1909.  Chris explains how the machine was designed and how it compared to the better known and earlier Babbage Design.

Ludgate died (at just 39) on 16th October 1922 – so the 100th anniversary of his death is this month.

We finish with a good talk about Chris’s eclectic taste in music and play out with a very surprising piece.

You’ll enjoy this lively and interesting podcast.
