Alan Turing is best known for his activities during World War II, when his machine “The Bombe” successfully cracked the Enigma Code, saving countless lives. Yet there is much more to Turing than this. Hosted by Wilmslow Guild, this lecture by Gill Rossini offers a rounded picture of Turing as an academic and as a man, demonstrating that his genius was nuanced and multi-faceted, and his legacy much broader than one might think. The lecture includes an additional guest speaker, computer scientist Johnny Houston, who will explain and assess the technical aspects of Turing’s most challenging projects.
