“Michael Olinick has written a vibrant and absorbing biography of Alan Turing. Turing's work as a cryptographer during WW II and his pioneering development of the digital computer helped us win that war and make our technology-driven world of today possible—all this against the backdrop of the homophobic world Turing tried to navigate.” — Joseph Malkevitch, Professor of Mathematics at York College (CUNY) and CUNY Graduate Center Alan Turing’s (1912–1954) belief that computers would one day be able to learn has not yet been proven, but this English mathematician, logician, and code breaker was a pioneer in the field of computer science and artificial intelligence. His inventions—the Turing Machine and the Turing Test for Machine Intelligence among them—played a significant role in the creation of the modern computer.
