About this book
In this highly readable biography, Copeland focuses particularly on Turing's revolutionary ideas and his deeply influential contributions to mathematics, philosophy, the concepts of Artificial Intelligence and Artificial Life, and to the very foundations of computer science.
In the centenary of Alan Turing's birth, we celebrate the life and work of one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century. Best known for the role he played in cracking German secret code Enigma during World War Two, and the personal tragedy of his death aged only 41, this is an insight into to the man, his work, and his legacy.
