Jacquard’s Loom

 Jacquard’s Loom

  • The Jacquard system was developed in France in 1804-05 by Joseph-Marie Jacquard, improving on the original punched-card design of Jacques de Vaucanson's loom of 1745.

  • This Loom was the first to use a Punch Card.

  • Later the same Punch Card technology was used for Computer Programming.

  • The punched cards controlled the actions of the loom, allowing automatic production of intricate woven patterns. 

  • The punched-card idea was adopted later by Charles Babbage about 1830 to control his Analytical Engine, and later by Herman Hollerith for tabulating the 1890 USA census.
