Abstract:

Alan Turning is widely known as the cryptographer extraordinaire of Bletchly Park, the man who broke the Nazi Enigma code. He has also been described as the father of the modern computer, dreaming of a machine that could think adn inaugurating a scientific revolution that we are deep in the midst of today.
