Nov 01,  · Alan Turing book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Alan Turing () was a British mathematician who made history. Hi /5. Alan Mathison Turing OBE FRS (/ ˈ tj ʊər ɪ ŋ /; 23 June – 7 June ) was an English mathematician, computer scientist, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, and theoretical biologist. Turing was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be Awards: Smith's Prize (). "Turing's rehabilitation from over a quarter-century's embarrassed silence was largely the result of Andrew Hodges's superb biography, Alan Turing: The Enigma (; reissued with a new introduction in ). Hodges examined available primary sources and interviewed surviving witnesses to elucidate Turing's multiple dimensions. Thank you for the A2A. I have little new to add and must join all of the others here in saying that Andrew Hodges’ Alan Turing: The Enigma [1] is the biography of Turing. Hodges’ biography is thoroughly researched into all aspects of Turing’s li.

Nov 10,  · Alan Turing is an amazing mathematical genius who is now my personal hero. Hodges did an excellent job researching and writing this book. But best of all, it is about Alan Turing, a person well worth knowing about/5. I enjoyed this book because it made me understand as Alan Turing's interests in various branches of science led him to start the era of the computer, to figure out a machine could be developed to have an intelligence which is a wonderful tool for human intelligence and can even challenge it. Aug 14,  · The official book behind the Academy Award-winning film The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley Alan Turing was the mathematician whose cipher-cracking transformed the Second World War. Taken on by British Intelligence in , as a shy young Cambridge don, he combined brilliant logic with a flair for engineering/5(). Alan Turing still wasn’t famous in when I started studying simple programs, albeit in the context of cellular automata rather than Turing machines. But looking through the card catalog at the Caltech library one day, I chanced upon a book called Alan M. Turing by Sara Turing, his mother. There was lots of information in the book—among.

This is a book that should be read by anyone with an interest in the history of mathematics, computer science or the second world war. Alan Turing, the inventor of the abstract Turing machine, was an incredible individual who is still underappreciated for his by: In the book Alan Turing: the Enigma the author goes in depth about the life of Alan Turing, a homosexual, atheist, marathon running, British, mathematician. During WWII Alan was the man who created the machine which cracked the German enigma. This book follows his struggles through early life all the way to /5. Feb 10,  · This is not 'just' history, this is a living testament to human potential, and Andrew Hodges presents it wonderfully. My congratulations to him on the release of this new edition. // READ THIS BOOK. Alan Turing deserves to have the memory of his existence kept fresh, and you deserve to revel in quality biography/5. Andrew Hodges' book "Alan Turing: The Enigma," is the indispensable guide to Turing's life and work and one of the finest biographies of a scientific genius .
