    Setting a machine to do complex taks at all time with limited human interventions comes down at solving polynomial equation (mostly linear equations). The difference engine of Charles Babbage aimed at that, tabulating polynomial functions whose results help engineers build more precised machineries, navigators to draw more accurate maps and scientists to explore mathematical concept at a deeper level.

    See Babbage machine as your calculator that helps you to be more rapid at computing a lot of numbers but in a more abstract way. The problem, because there is always one, was that Babbage machine was a mechanical machine with only three operations it could carry out and mechanical parts to constantly maintain.
