Charles Babbage is known as the father of computers as he was the first person to come up with the idea of a programmable computer.

Born in 1791, he was an English mathematician, and tired of the high error rate in the calculation of mathematical tables, he wanted to find a way that they could be calculated mathematically thus removing any chance of human error.

He disliked untidiness and spurred on by this and earlier work carried out on calculating machines, he first mentioned the calculating machine in a letter in 1822.

His calculating engines were not actually completed due to funding problems and personality issues, but Babbage did prove that his machines could do the job of calculating better than any human and his steam powered devices more or less did the job correctly.

Babbage's first "difference engine" consisted of 25,000 parts and had a weight of fifteen tons. Many of his uncompleted mechanisms are now on display in the science museum and they formed the basis of what was to develop into today's computers.

Charles Babbage developed Analytical engine. This machine consisted of five functional units such as Input Unit, Memory Unit, Arithmetic Unit, Control Unit and Output unit. The architecture of the modern digital computer resembles te Analytical engine and hence Charles Babbage is called as the father of computers.
