This man, Alan Turing, helped win World War II by inventing a computer than could decrypt German messages encoded with the Enigma machine. In addition, he formally described the concepts of algorithms and computation. He proved that anything computable on one machine, is computable on another, given enough time. He is the father of computer science. After the war he was tried in court for being gay, found gulty, forced to take castration pills, and then driven to suicide. Britan has…

Alan Turing broke the German Enigma code during World War II and devised the Turing machine and the Turing test of computer intelligence. Unabashedly gay, he committed suicide after being convicted of homosexual acts.

Alan Turing: Creator of modern computing

Alan Turing : The codebreaker who saved 'millions of lives' / Jack Copeland @bbcnews | Alan Turing - the Bletchley Park codebreaker - would have been 100 years old on 23 June had he lived to the present day. To mark the occasion the BBC commissioned a week-long series of articles to explore his many achievements. This second essay examines the impact the British mathematician had on the outcome of World War II | #alanturingyear

Alan Turings 100th Birthday  INTERACTIVE DOODLE  Alan Turing was a completely original thinker who shaped the modern world, but many people have never heard of him.         Before computers existed, he invented a type of theoretical machine now called a Turing Machine, which formalized what it means to compute a number. Our doodle for his 100th birthday shows a live action Turing Machine with twelve interactive programming puzzles (hint: go back and play it again after you solve the first…

Near the end of his life, the great mathematician Alan Turing wrote his first and last paper on biology and chemistry, about how a certain type of chemical reaction ought to produce many patterns seen in nature.  Called "The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis," it was an entirely theoretical work. But in following decades, long after Turing tragically took his own life in 1954, scientists found his speculations to be reality.  *a brilliant, tragic man

Alan Turing (1912 – 1954) - Turing is considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence. During the Second World War, he worked at Bletchley Park, Britain's codebreaking centre. His work shortened the war in Europe by more than two years. Here seen in 1951.

During the Second World War, Turing worked for the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) at Bletchley Park, Britain's codebreaking centre. For a time he led Hut the section responsible for German naval cryptanalysis.
