This man, Alan Turing, helped win World War II by inventing a computer than could decrypt German messages encoded with the Enigma machine. In addition, he formally described the concepts of algorithms and computation. He proved that anything computable on one machine, is computable on another, given enough time. He is the father of computer science. After the war he was tried in court for being gay, found gulty, forced to take castration pills, and then driven to suicide. Britan has…

Eduardo Galeano recounts the life and death of Alan Turing, the father of the modern computer. After pleading guilty to the "crime and sickness" of homosexuality, Touring was forced to undergo medical "cures" which prompted his tragic suicide.

Alan Mathison Turing,1912–1954. Eng mathematician,logician,cryptanalyst & computer scientist.He is widely considered to be the father of computer science & AI.His homosexuality resulted in a criminal prosecution in 1952. Accepting chemical castration as an alternative to prison.Alan died in 1954, just before turning 42, from cyanide poisoning.Brit PM Gordon Brown made an official public apology on behalf of the British government in 2009,for the way Turing was treated after the war.

Alan Turing was a mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, and computer scientist and is widely considered to be the father of computer science and artificial intelligence.  He was also homosexual during a time when homosexuality was illegal.  Found guilty, he was given a choice between chemical castration and prison.  Instead he chose to kill himself in 1954.

The conceptual Universal Turing Machine - it can simulate any other machine, and is named after Alan Turing. Turing was highly influential in the development of computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of "algorithm" and "computation" with the Turing machine, which played a significant role in the creation of the modern computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of computer science and artificial intelligence.

Alan Turing is popular for being regarded as "The Father of Computer Science". He invented the basis for all modern computers today,the Turing Machine.He also helped Britain and the allies to win World War two and shorten it be two years by cracking the code of the German Enigma bomb.He probably saved more lives than any other person during the 20th century! Turing's homosexuality resulted in a criminal prosecution in 1952.He accepted treatment with female hormones as an alternative to…
