Binary numbers as a coding system date from ancient times, notably the hexagrams of the I Ching (800 AD China), and the even earlier binary poetic meter of Pingala in India (5th century BC).

Francis Bacon first discussed the replacement of letters with binary code (a precursor of the hexadecimal system) in 1605.

However, the extension of binary code to computer operations was not developed until a thesis by Claude Shannon in 1937, which was a major milestone in modern information theory.
