What did Alan Turning do?
He was inspired by his friend's death
The situation changed when Alan Turing became intensely attracted to another able pupil, Christopher Morcom.
He was inspired to communicate more and also to become an academic success. But Christopher died suddenly from tuberculosis. Devastated, Turing wanted to believe that Christopher’s mind somehow lived on. His emotional turmoil involved a scientific fascination with the problem of mind and brain that underlay his later work.
