Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 1992. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A new edition to celebrate Alan Turing s centenary, includes a new foreword by the author and a preface by Douglas Hofstadter. Alan Turing was the extraordinary Cambridge mathematician who masterminded the cracking of the German Enigma ciphers and transformed the Second World War. But his vision went far beyond this crucial achievement. Before the war he had formulated the concept of the universal machine, and in 1945 he turned this into the first design for a digital computer. Turing s far-sighted plans for the digital era forged ahead into a vision for Artificial Intelligence. However, in 1952 his homosexuality rendered him a criminal and he was subjected to humiliating treatment. In 1954, aged 41, Alan Turing committed suicide and one of Britain s greatest scientific minds was lost. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780099116417
