The correct answer to this question is Charles Babbage. Born in 1791, Charles Babbage had many fields of expertise, including being a mathematician, philosopher, inventor, and engineer. He created the analytical engine, which is the first design used in a general-purpose computer. It has done so by incorporating many elements including control flow, integrated memory, and logic unit.

Babbage began his work on the Analytical Engine in 1833. Over the years, the engine has continued to be worked on and improved. Charles Babbage son, Henry, worked on it in 1872 through 1875. In the 1900s account Percy Ludgate went on to design his own version.
