reading The New Yorker to Time Magazine I have learned much about Alan Turing. I would like share with you how Alan Turing changed the computer age by focusing on three aspects of his life: the first his early life‚ second his adult life and third his work and accomplishments. II. Body a. Alan Mathieson Turing Early Life i. Alan Mathieson Turing was born on June 23 1912‚ the second and last child of Julius Mathieson and Ethel Sara Turing. He was born in a nursing home in Paddington‚ London according

He is the “Father of Modern Computer” and “Artificial Intelligence”. His not famous or well known outside scientific circles during his lifetime because his crucial work was considered the Top secret until the late 1970s. He became the center of media attention when Queen Elizabeth II granted him a Royal Pardon on December 23‚ 2013. He was also the one who cracked the German

Open DocumentAlan Mathison Turing (23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954)‚ was a British mathematician‚ logician‚ cryptanalyst‚ and computer scientist. He was highly influential in the development of computer science‚ giving a formalisation of the concepts of "algorithm" and "computation" with the Turing machine‚ which can be considered a model of a general purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of computer science and artificial intelligence. He was stockily built‚ had a high-pitched voice‚ and

Open DocumentA Biography of Alan Turing‚ with Mathematics. From the middle name one may suspect a certain class value‚although the "Math" bit is a strange coincidence. His father went to Oxford and then worked for the Indian Civil Service. His mother’s father also worked in India. He was born in 1912‚ their second son. 1926 his father retired so perhaps he had something of normal family life from then on. Went to Sherborne‚ one of older public schools. Whilst there he became a close friend of Christopher

For me‚ it is not just a simple life story. It is the prideful story of the man who saved the world! So‚ now I’m going to talk about Alan Turing- founder of computer science‚ philosopher‚ mathematician‚ code breaker‚ and the culpable‚ guilty person of his time! Let’s begin! Alan Mathison Turing was born in England. He had signs of high intelligence

Open DocumentAlan Turing was not recognized for his achievements during his lifetime; however‚ he is one of the most notable scientists and mathematicians of modern times. Born on June 23‚ 1912 to Julius Mathison and Ethel Sara Turing‚ he and his brother John were fostered into various homes while their father worked in India. The foster care facilities suppressed any ideas of innovation‚ imagination‚ and creativity. This only pushed Turing’s interest for science even further. At thirteen‚ Turing was sent to

Open DocumentThe pioneer of computer science‚ Alan Turing Introduction Alan Mathison Turing(1912-1954) is one of the most intelligent scientists in the world‚ who is not only famous as a war savor but also a computer scientist. During the Second World War‚ Turing successfully cracked the German Enigma ciphers and turned the scale of the war‚ saving thousands of livings. Thanks to the celebration of Turing’s centenary in 2012‚ nowadays‚ the name of Alan Turing is universally known as the pioneer of computer

Open DocumentEven though technology‚ such as Turing’s machine and the Enigma‚ was beginning to emerge‚ the society still held a rigid law against homosexuality. In this case‚ Turing’s colleague‚ John Cairncross‚ stated clearly: “You can’t tell anyone‚ Alan. It’s illegal” and “Do you know what they do to homosexuals? You’ll never be able to work again‚ never be able to teach.” From these dialogs‚ we can draw a conclusion that homophobia (“dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people”) and heteronormativity
