his impact on modern computing

Alan Turing (1912-1954) was a brilliant mathematician and a leading code-breaker during World War 2. His pre-war work laid down the theoretical plan for a programmable computer, and after the war he was closely involved in the design and programming of the world’s earliest computing machines. He designed the ACE built by the UK Government, wrote programming manuals, and founded the discipline of artificial intelligence.
