Alan Turing, British mathematician (1912-1954),  altered the course of the 20th C.  His 1936 paper laid the foundation of computer science, providing the first formal concept of a computer algorithm. In WWII he designed the machines that cracked German military codes. In the late 1940's he turned his attention to artificial intelligence and proposed a challenge, now called the Turing test, still important today. His contribution to mathematical biology was no less profound.

Alan Turing (1912 – 1954). Here seen in 1951.considered by many as the father of Artificial Intelligence. Accomplished marathon rUnner too.

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.

Joan Clarke Murray codebreaker at Bletchley Park during World War II, became deputy head of Hut 8 in 1944. Code breaking was almost exclusively done by men during the war. Clarke was paid less than the men and felt that she was prevented from progressing further because of her gender. She was a English cryptanalyst and numismatist ~

They made a documentary about him called "the imitation game ". It's really good

This is so sad, and I even looked it up to verify. To think so many horrible people use his technology every day, and society literally killed a beautiful mind.

Alan Turing Statue by Stephen Kettle. Made of thousands of slate stones from Wales. Have seen this at Bletchley Park - it is astonishing.

Enigma machine. Alan Turing was part of the British cryptographic team at Bletchley Park that cracked the German Enigma code during World War II.

Alan Turing's Universal Machine is named greatest British innovation of the 20th Century

I'm so happy to hear Alan Turing's story being told, even if it is by way of a Hollywood movie. Turing was part of the British cryptographic team at Bletchley Park that cracked the German Enigma code during World War II.
