Charles Babbage

"On two occasions, I have been asked [by members of Parliament],

'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?'

I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question."

(Charles Babbage - designer of a prototype of the first computer)
