Alan Turing and the Enigma Machine

Alan Turing

Alan Turing was a computer scientist and a mathematical biologist. He invented an early prototype computer called the Turing Machine. He is widely considered the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence. In the 2nd world war, he worked at Bletchley park to try and crack the German cyphers and codes. One of the Germans most used codes was the Enigma Code.

The Enigma machine

The enigma machine was invented by the German engineer Arthur Scherbius at the end of the first world war. It was a series of electro mechanical rotor cypher machines developed and used in the early to early-mid twentieth century for commercial and military usage.
