Description
 
Alan TuringAlan Turing had a radical and ingenious mind. He is considered one of the fathers of artificial intelligence, and his theories on this matter range from purely mechanical to almost spiritual. During World War II, his decryption of the Nazis Enigma codes proved vital for the Allied victory over the Axis powers. Turings fingerprints are everywhere, and yet his own country for quite some time failed to acknowledge it. It wasnt until 2009 that the then prime minister of the United Kingdom, Gordon Brown, issued an official, posthumous apology to Alan Turing for "the appalling way he was treated." To many, this was an admission that was far too long in coming.

Inside you will read about... The Death of His First Love
Turing Machines
Breaking the Nazis Enigma Codes
Conviction and Chemical Castration
The Poison Apple
And much more!

As the chronicling of this book demonstrates, Alan Turings life was by no means easy; there were hardships, trials, and tribulations that would shake him to his core. But despite the tragic way his life ended by way of a poison apple, the spark ignited by Alan Turings short life is still something exceedingly brilliant to behold.
