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.

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.

The most inspirational quote of all time! from The Imitation Game movie

The Imitation Game quote. Sometimes it is the people no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

Alan Turing, everyone (Had to learn about him from a movie!)

Alan Turing, the man who broke the enigma code during WWII, is estimated to have shortened the war by over two years, and to have saved over 14 million lives. He was later charged for his homosexuality and was forced to undergo chemical castration.

Do to his government mandated therapy- he killed himself at the young age of who knows what else his brilliant mind could have accomplished 😞

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

Groundbreaking: Alan Turing also invented the code breaking naval Enigma machine which cracked the Nazis' coding machine and stripped U-boats blockading Britain of their cover
