Alan Mathison Turing Mathematician philosopher codebreaker a founder of computer science and the father of Artificial Intelligence Turing was one of the most original thinkers of the last century and the man whose work helped create the computer driven world we now inhabit But he was also an enigmatic figure deeply reticent yet also strikingly naïve Turing’s openness about his homosexuality at a time when it was an imprisonable offense ultimately led to his untimely lo death at the age of only forty one In 'Alan Turing Unlocking the Enigma' David.
David Boyle µ 6 CHARACTERSUre in the advancement of computers and artificial intelligence Known f This is a short and concise biography of Alan Turing It covers his secret work on breaking the German Enigma code his academic career his arrest for a homosexual act and his sad suicide The book offered nothing new to me about Alan Turing A much better book is Alan Turing The Enigma by Andrew HodgesAnyone interested "in biographies of people who made major contributions to the world should like the book and for those that want "biographies of people who made major contributions to the world should like the book and for those that want short review of his life A brief introduction to Turing s ideas about computer s intelligence and consciousness Can a computer be aware of its own existence The book s title is deceiving Just scratches the surface of Turing s involvement in cracking ENIGMA This book encourages me to explore a bit about the liar paradox the Entscheidungsproblem and the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein While I found this to be a very interesting read overall I thought that the author did not spend enough time on each particular event in Turing s life It was too much of an overview of his life rather than devoting time to the
uestions and discoveries that made him famous I had no idea Alan Turing was soand discoveries that made him famous I had no idea Alan Turing was so or had made such important contributions to the fields of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Theory You really don t have to know a thing about either of those fields to appreciate this piece. Ded for his supposedly subversive views and for his sexuality Turing was prosecuted in 1952 and forced to accept the humiliation of hormone treatment to avoid a prison sentence Just two years later at the age of 41 he was dead The verdict cyanide poisoning Was Turing’s death accidental as his mother always claimed Or did persistent persecution drive him to take him own life ‘Alan Turing Unlocking the Enigma’ seeks to find the man behind the science illuminating the life of a person who is still a shadowy presence behind his brilliant achievemen. .
Le link to Guy Burgess which I would like to read about Although this is a short book it is a ood introduction to a truly fascinating and round breaking manRated 35 This is a short book a Kindle Single and Will Give The Reader A Flavour Of give the reader a flavour of Turing s position in the world of science He was a brilliant

Boyle reveals the mysteries behind the man and his remarkable career Aged just 22 Turing was elected a fellow at King's College Cambridge on the strength of a dissertation in which he proved the central limit theorem By the age of 33 he had been awarded the OBE by King George VI for his wartime services Turing was instrumental in cracking the Nazi Enigma machines at the top secret code breaking establishment at Bletchley Park during the Second World War But his achievements were to be tragically overshadowed by the paranoia of the post War years Houn.
