  • Alan Turing Accomplishments

    Alan Turing was misunderstood, to say the least. The man we now regard as the father of modern computer science was heavily criticized and discouraged during his life for various reasons. Nonetheless, Turing was an incomparable mathematician way ahead of his time, and he made major contributions to the math and technology fields, helping win World War II and creating a path for modern computers to become a reality. We recognize him today with great honor and respect, but throughout his lifetime, and even for quite some time after, his actions and accomplishments have caused a great deal of scrutiny. However, this doesn’t negate the fact that his accomplishments were indeed noteworthy. So noteworthy, in fact, that his work has made its way to our mathematics course under the study of encryption and coding. What Alan Turing did as a mathematician during World War II involved the use of codes and encryption to break the unbreakable enigma machine and subsequently win the war. His work had humble beginnings and staggering remains, but his involvement in breaking the enigma machine has indeed changed the course of history for the better. Turing was very much a self-involved student growing up.…

  • Alan Turing's Impact On Society

    "Sometimes it is the people no one can imagine anything of that do the things no one can imagine." The successful mathematician Alan Turing once said this. Faced with many obstacles and critics in his life, he proved this to be true. Many people never thought he would accomplish his ideas, and even as a child he was discouraged from practicing and learning science. Later in life, he made machines and proved theories no one believed were possible. Alan Turing was born on June 23, 1912 in…
