Wouldn't you know it? Today marks what would have been Alan Turing's 100th birthday. This man was not only immensely influential in the development of computer science and cryptanalysis, he is also considered the father of Artificial Intelligence. In fact, words like "algorithm" and "computation" are traced to him, as was the development of the "Turing machine" concept which has helped computer scientists to understand the limits of mechanical computation.
It's Alan Turing birthday. Alan Turing is one my favorite people ever. This tribute covers pretty much all the reasons why he's awesome, so thanks to storiesbywilliams for sharing! Enjoy!
