Summary
Turing can be regarded as one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century. But who was Turing, and what did he achieve during his tragically short life of 41 years? Best known as the genius who broke Germany's most secret codes during the war of 1939-45, Turing was also the father of the modern computer. Today, all who 'click-to-open' are familiar with the impact of Turing's ideas
Summary
Describes the life and work of the British mathematician who played a major role in unraveling German codes during World War II and helped to establish the fields of computer science and artificial intelligence
