Accepted Paper:

Mothers of AI? Alan Turing on Ada Lovelace  
Teresa Heffernan (Saint Mary's University, Halifax)

Paper short abstract:

Alan Turing, intent on birthing his "child machine," objected to Ada Lovelace’s assertion that the Analytical Engine could not "originate anything." He proposed that Lovelace had likely never considered the possibilities of speed and storage when she noted the limits of computation. As the daughter of a poet, however, Lovelace more likely recognized the limits of rule-bound machines and valued a decentralized intelligence rooted in imagination, creativity, and language.
