Alan Mathison Turing, OBE, FRS was a British mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, pioneering computer scientist, mathematical biologist, and marathon and ultra distance runner. He was highly influential in the development of computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of "algorithm" and "computation" with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general purpose computer.

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.

Julius Wilhelm Richard Dedekind was a German mathematician who made important contributions to abstract algebra (particularly ring theory), algebraic number theory and the foundations of the real numbers.
