Alan Mathison Turing was born on 23 June, 1912. He was a mathematician, cryptanalyst and the father of computer science. His pioneering work in the 1930s cracked the Nazi’s Enigma codes in World War II, and led to the invention of the modern computer. Turing died in 1954 of cyanide poisoning, two years after he was convicted for homosexual activity and branded a security risk.

His work

Turing was also the recipient of the Order of the British Empire for his significant code-breaking work (with the aid of his code-breaking machine known as the Bombe) during World War II, having helped in decoding more than 84,000 intercepted messages per month. n 1948, Alan Turing was appointed Reader at the University of Manchester (Mathematics Department) while continuing his abstract work in mathematics. His main contribution at Manchester University was his design for the programming system of Ferranti Mark I, the first commercially available electronic digital computer.
