Alan turing

The enigma code

Alan Turing loved to have a challenge in front of him and was known as the father of computer science and artificial intelligence. He was asked to help break an enigma code which the Germans where using to communicate with others and he cracked it in the end using a machine called the bomb which was the first computer ever made.

“We can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done.”- Alan Turing

“The original question, 'Can machines think?' I believe to be too meaningless to deserve discussion"-Alan Turing

"A computer would deserve to be called intelligent if it could deceive a human into believing that it was human.”- Alan Turing

How he died

Alan Turing killed himself using an apple laced with cyanide because people found out he was homosexual and the because this was illegal the police arrested him. They gave him a choose of whether he wanted to go to jail or have a hormonal drug and he choose the drug. In the end he went so mad because his brain wouldnt work properly that he killed himself.
