"This book is an incredibly detailed and meticulously researched biography of Alan Turing. Reading it is a melancholy experience, since you know from the outset that the ending is a tragic one and that knowledge overshadows you throughout.

While the author divides the text into two parts, it actually reads like a play in four by: of results for Books: "Alan Turing" Alan Turing: The Enigma: The Book That Inspired the Film The Imitation Game - Updated Edition.

Its subject, the British mathematical genius who contributed to the cryptanalysis of the Nazi enigma code and to the beginnings of the computer, was not an easy subject/5.

Either the page is no longer relevant or consensus on its purpose has become unclear. To revive discussion, seek. This book, written by a nephew of Alan Turing, resurrects the lost history of the Enigma Secret by revealing the part that Polish mathematicians played in breaking the Enigma code.

Their stange and hectic lives are detailed here for the first time to the English-speaking world/5(34). It is not a book about Alan Turing, but rather about how Alan Turing's vision of the Turing Machine has ultimately become Turing book entire digital world we think we know today.

Dyson integrates the the visions and accomplishments of Turing and those of his peers who pursued these visions with an uncanny by: Andrew Hodges' book "Alan Turing: The Enigma," is the indispensable guide to Turing's life and work and one of the finest biographies of a scientific genius.

Turing Hooper Books Turing Hopper is the lead character in the Turing Hopper series of novels by American author, Donna Andrews. The Turing Hopper character was introduced to readers in the debut novel in the series, You’ve Got Murder, published in Order of Turing Hopper Series.

Turing Tumble is a revolutionary new game where players (ages 8 to adult) build mechanical computers powered by marbles to solve logic puzzles. It’s fun, addicting, and while you’re at it, you discover how computers work. Computers are full of ingenious Turing book and astonishing creativity.

They're everywhere, but most of us don't understand. This book is presented as a biography by a mother of his son. Book was originally published as a collection of information by his mother for the people writing Alan's biography in future, so they could utilize these records in future. The book majorly is divided into two sections: one main biographical by Sara Turing and other by John Turing/5.

This New York Times –bestselling biography of the founder of computer science, with a new preface by the author that addresses Turing’s royal pardon in. But what it did have (in addition to an inscription saying “from Alan Turing’s books”) was a colorful four-page note from Norman Routledge to George Rutter, written in I had known Norman Routledge when I was a high-school student at Eton in the early s.

He was a math teacher, nicknamed “Nutty Norman”. Dermot Turing is the acclaimed author of Prof, a biography of his famous uncle, The Story of Computing, and most recently X, Y and Z – the real story of how Enigma was broken.

He is also a regular speaker at historical and other events. He began writing in after a career in law. Turing had a reputation for eccentricity at Bletchley Park. He was known to his colleagues as "Prof" and his treatise on Enigma was known as the "Prof's Book".

According to historian Ronald Lewin, Jack Good, a cryptanalyst who worked with Turing, said of his colleague:Awards: Smith's Prize (). Alan Turing: The Enigma () is a biography of the British mathematician, codebreaker, and early computer scientist, Alan Turing (–) by Andrew Hodges.

The book covers Alan Turing's life and work. The American film The Imitation Game is loosely based on the book, with : Andrew Hodges.

Jack Copeland. It is a bit ironic that a book whose title implies that Alan Turing himself is the biggest enigma manages to leave him still an enigma in many ways, but that is the case. I think the aspect of the book that I most grasped and that was the most thought-provoking was Turing's ideas about machine intelligence/5().

Alan Turing: The Enigma (Film Tie-In) Very nice book. Perfectly covered the genius of the great man. One needs to have basic knowledge of mathematics.

The book could be simpler and could meet the need of a great biography. If one has seen the /5(K). The book Turing lacked sufficient style and seriously weak plot in driving coverage of the history of computation. From a stylistic point of view, the book is extremely fragmented and confusing in parts.

The Turing interactions seemed disconnected and contrived relative to the other romantic/5. Alan Mathison Turing, –54, British mathematician and computer theorist. While studying at Cambridge he began work in predicate logic that led to a proof () that some mathematical problems are not susceptible to solution by automated computation; in arriving at this, he postulated a universal machine, now called a Turing machine, that was the theoretical prototype of the electronic.

Introduction to Programming in Turing focuses on computing concepts with the ultimate goal of facilitating the broadest possible coverage of the core computer science curriculum. The programming language used in this book is Turing (OOT), which has an easy-to-learn syntax and is supported by student-friendly programming Size: 2MB.

Alan Turing is regarded as one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century. But who was Turing, and what did he achieve during his tragically short life of 41 years.

Best known as the genius who broke Germany's most secret codes during the war ofTuring was also the father of the modern computer. Today, all who 'click-to-open' are familiar with the impact of Turing's ideas. The Turing test, developed by Alan Turing inis a test of a machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human.

Turing proposed that a human evaluator would judge natural language conversations between a human and a machine designed to generate human-like responses. The book also features essays by Andrew Appel and Solomon Feferman that explain the still-unfolding significance of the ideas Turing developed at Princeton.

A work of philosophy as well as mathematics, Turing’s thesis envisions a practical goal—a logical system to formalize mathematical proofs so they can be checked mechanically. Without this book, the real Alan Turing might fade into obscurity or at least the easy caricature of an eccentric British mathematician.

And to the relief of many, because Turing was a difficult person: an unapologetic homosexual in post-victorian england; ground-breaking mathematician; utterly indifferent to social conventions; arrogantly original (working from first principles, ignoring Cited by: Directed by Morten Tyldum.

Turing lived in a certain sexual imposture, like A; in court he told the truth about himself, like B. Homosexuality was a crime in Great Britain. Turing was convicted of gross obscenity inand administered synthetic estrogen.

He died of cyanide poisoning, an apparent suicide, in Beside him was a half-eaten apple. Alan Turing was a British mathematician. He made major contributions to the fields of mathematics, computer science, and artificial intelligence.

He worked for the British government during World War II, when he succeeded in breaking the secret code Germany used to communicate. Perhaps, he imagines at the end of his book, the message Turing wanted to convey is one that has so far been overlooked: “In the fairy tale the apple into which Snow White bites doesn’t kill.
