In honor of Ada Lovelace Day 2018, Forbes has issued its inaugural unranked list of Top Women in Technology, who were cited for bringing diversity to the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) sectors.

U.K. computer scientist Sue Black was among the 50 European women on the list; Black created an online course to educate and empower women through technology, and was instrumental in saving the historic codebreaking site Bletchley Park.

Others on the list were cited for their contributions to technology specialties including robotics and artificial intelligence.

Said Forbes technology writer Parmy Olson, "This list features three generations of women from across Europe who are continuing Ada Lovelace’s legacy, by taking up positions in established organizations or using their entrepreneurial skills to set up powerful and innovative new ventures.”
