Famous In This Field
Alan Turing is a British mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, and computer scientist. He is thought of as the father of computer science.
During WW2, Turing worked at Britain’s secret code-breaking centre Bletchley Park. He was the primary person responsible for breaking the German Enigma code which proved to be a critical factor in the war. It helped the Allies to decode secret messages that the Germans sent to their forces meaning that the Allies knew what the Axis troops were doing, what they were planning and where they were going.
Alan Turing’s work and life during WW2 has recently been depicted in a film called ‘The Imitation Game’. It has won an Oscar and 9 BAFTA awards.
