About Alan Turing
Alan Turing was considered to be a pioneer in the field of computer science, with his ‘Turing Machine’ providing the early blueprints in algorithm and computation for which all subsequent computers will follow. He also designed one of the very first concepts of a stored-program computer while working for the National Physical Laboratory in London, England.
Turing made his biggest contributions in the Second World War during his time at Britain’s codebreaking center, Government Code and Cypher School, where he helped in devising ways to break German ciphers. His role in interpreting coded messages allowed the Allies to gain crucial victories against the German forces, and his overall work was said to be instrumental in making the conflict in the European side a much shorter engagement.
