This is Alan Turing!

Alan Turing was the father of the first computers. He was known to be the founder of computer science and also helped during WWII. Alan Turing helped decipher the code used by the Germans. The Germans had invented a machine called the enigma device and it was very difficult to crack. However, Turing created the 'bombe' designed to crack the code.
