14 Alan Turing Quotes : The Father of Modern Computer Science

Alan Turing was an English mathematician, one of the most influential computer scientists, and a philosopher. He is considered to be the father of artificial intelligence. Turing received less recognization because most of his works were covered by the Official Secrets Act.

Alan Turing was born in Maida Vale, London. His unmatchable merit was fast discovered soon after he started going to school. He was a mathematical genius. Turing went to Kings King's College, Cambridge where he earned first-class honors in mathematics. He has a wide contribution to the breaking of German ciphers during the Second World War. He helped the British army to break the enigma code.

Turing was appointed an officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1946. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) in 1951. Turing is the designer of the Turing machine.

Time magazine named Turing as one of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th century and stated, "The fact remains that everyone who taps at a keyboard, opening a spreadsheet or a word-processing program, is working on an incarnation of a Turing machine."

The Computing machinery and intelligence, On Computable Numbers, Intelligent Machinery, A Heretical Theory are some notable works of Alan Turing. he remains one of the most influential scientists even decades after his death.
