He was the son of a British member of the Indian civil service, Turing went to King’s College, University of Cambridge, to study maths in 1931. He is probably the most famous person on computer history. He created computers in WW2, which helped England to hack into the enemies computers. Without him what would be doing homework on? Writing it down? So we have to thank him for his lovely discovery.

But it is not a happy ending, because he was gay, and in those times you would get arrested. So he committed suicide.
