Alan Turing’s Birthday

Alan Turing would have been 98 today if he hadn’t eaten an apple laced with cyanide at the age of 41.

What we call the computer was mostly defined by the Mathematician Alan Turing and what we call Artificial Intelligence was conceived by the philosopher Alan Turing. His contributions as patriot Alan Turing probably shortened World War II by months if not years.

Turing was a complicated person who led a difficult life, but my life is better because of him.
