For my own doctoral dissertation, I spent months doing multiple correlations on a hand-cranked calculating machine
that could not even derive square roots.
Charles Babbage built the first computer, a steam-driven calculating machine
, in the 1800s.
Should Becher have been able to use a computer or a calculating machine
, no one would doubt to qualify his invention like the first attempt to develop an automated translation system.
A mathematician, she wrote the instruction sets for Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine, a calculating machine
Napier invented a primitive form of a calculating machine
which is now called Napier's Bones.
The world famous calculator company has produced another totally mind blowing, world-altering calculating machine
in the XFER.
At Bethlehem, Taylor recorded two great achievements: first, the development with a colleague of a new "high speed" tool steel, a material that allowed machine tools to cut metal at three to four times the previous speeds; and second, the systematization of years of metal-cutting experiments into a special slide rule for calculating machine
speed and feed.
This involves the wide range of things people do that cannot be easily taken over by a calculating machine
Emotionally, the cat is a calculating machine

She became a mathematician, writer and computer pioneer working with engineer Charles Babbage on his invention of the fully automated calculating machine
, writing for it the first ever published computer programme.
day for Now we have a black president who acts like a dessicated (and very white) calculating machine
, who campaigned in poetry but governs in such prolix prose that we run the risk of the rabid Republicans rendering him a one-hit wonder.
Hounded by the publicity over Ulrika Jonsson's autobiography, Eriksson was beginning to resemble a startled rabbit rather than the ice-cool calculating machine

Later in the decade, IBM introduced the Selective Sequence Electronic Calculator as the company's first large-scale digital calculating machine

Now a leading boffin agrees we are all living in someone's massive calculating machine
A historian is taking the first steps towards rebuilding a pioneering wooden calculating machine
which was invented in the 19th century by a self-taught mathematician but rejected by the government of the day.
