Alan Turing

Who is he and what did he create?

The computers we know today weren't created in a day they all started with a boy leaning over a desk in Cambridge named Alan Turing. While the world changed around him, Alan Turing, just 24 years old, dreamt of a machine that could be taught to think. The machine read symbols printed on tape. World War two arrived and Turing was recruited to crack German codes. After the war, Turing and others tried to physically build his ideal computer.He became a pioneer of artificial intelligence. He was convinced these computers could take on tasks we couldn't achieve ourselves and make life better. Turing described them as children. Sadly, Turing died on 7 June 1954 (aged 41) but his technology lives on.
