Alan Mathison Turing OBE FRS was an English computer scientist, mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher and theoretical biologist. He was highly. Mathematician Andrew Hodges charts the great achievements and extraordinary private life of British mathematician Alan Turing. The Extraordinary True Story Behind D-Day. Campbell-Kelly, Martin , ed. In der Folgezeit pendelten die Eltern zwischen England und Indien, bis sich Turings Mutter entschied, längere Zeit in England zu bleiben, und die Söhne wieder zu sich nahm. Instead, Turing played a game in which he simulated the computer, taking about half an hour per move. Auch wenn er seine körperlichen Veränderungen mit Humor kommentierte, muss die Verweiblichung seiner Konturen den sportlichen Läufer und Tennisspieler schwer getroffen haben. He worked on on algebra and number theory; on showing that his definition of computability coincided with that of Church; and on an extension of his ideas Ordinal Logics which provided a Ph. His reading of the then new work of von Neumann on the logical foundations of quantum mechanics, helped the transition from emotional to rigorous intellectual enquiry. But in no way did he just succumb and decline. One of Turing's lasting legacies to AI, and not necessarily a good one, is his approach to the problem of thinking machines. The AI aristocracy strongly supported the contest until it became clear how badly the machines were performing. It is a role that might have been tailor-made for Cumberbatch, and which he captures beautifully. Share your thoughts here. MOST READ MOST DISCUSSED 1. Although his work had shown the absolute limitations of the computable, he had become chaos 2 by what Turing machines could do, rather than by what they could not. One machine, for all possible tasks. Defiant, he did not deny the charges. A method for determining this is called a decision method.
