Event Details

Who was Alan Turing (OBE) and what does his example mean for you?

Alan Turing lived in (born on 23rd June 1912) and was one of the greatest British mathematicians! Turing published an academic paper on algorithms that formed the foundations of computer science.  Turing is the mind behind the computers that we are all using today and his mathematic brilliance gives an example of the links between science, new technologies and innovative products!  But this was not the only application of Turing’s genius… 

To find out more join us on Tuesday the 29th of January at 5 in G 34 (Lecture Theatre 5) for the UK academic premiere of the “Codebreaker” a film documenting the life and contribution of Alan Turing.

Sadly, Turing died on the eve of his 42nd birthday, two years after being prosecuted for being gay, as homosexuality was illegal in Britain till 1967. Britain might have been leading the computing industry if it wasn't for Turing's death.  In 2009, Turing received a public apology by the British government after an online petition.

 

The “Codebreaker” has received the Audience Award at the 2012 European Science TV & New Media Awards, Lisbon, Portugal.

Refreshments will be provided!
