  • The Imitation Game Analysis

    cryptologists and colleague Joan Clarke, who is played by Keira Knightley. 'Enigma ' was a highly complex device used by the Nazi Germans to send encrypted code messages throughout the world prior and during World War II. The device was so instrumental to Hitler 's early dominance because nobody except the Germans knew how to read and decipher the messages during the early folds of the…

  • Technology During World War 2 Essay

    Technological During World War II: Was the Enigma Machine the Start of the Computer Age? It is true that the loss of life sorely exceeds the individual developments and inventions in technology; but as a whole, technology exceeded most expectations that occurred during the infancy of these advancements. Most of the technology created was meant to hurt one population or another, but it has impacted all of our lives in a positive way since. Possibly the worst time in the history of the world, we…

  • Cryptography: The Invasion Of Privacy

    alphabet to see which letters were most or least likely and from there could break the cipher of the messages they intercepted (Singh). Once this process was figured out it became easier to crack any substitution cipher because each letter was only represented by one other letter. The creation of the Enigma machine became the next step in the field of cryptography to combat frequency analysis. The Enigma machine had three parts: the input keyboard, the output lampboard and the scrambling…

  • Alan Turing Accomplishments

    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…

  • Computer Influence On War

    In 1941, Turing and his cohorts deciphered the German 's original Enigma cypher by hand, which made it possible to let the Allies figure out where the German U-boats were before the Germans could even attack. The issue with deciphering the system was that it took too much time and energy out of those deciphering the Enigma. Turing and several other members of the British Code and Cypher School, became determined to develop something that would not put as much stress on them. Within a year they…

  • Alan Turing: The Code Breaker Who Saved

    war was the decryption of the Enigma code. The enigma code was first discovered by the Polish who shared the information with the British and the French when they were in fear of attack. When the Polish shared their information with the British about the Enigma, they joined forces and created the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS). Once the government started working on cracking Enigma they gathered the best minds they could find, and one of them was Alan Turing. Alan Mathison Turing was…

  • Alan Turing Machine Research Paper

    With the example of the Turing Machine, the boundary between government institutions and scientific discovery is found in the mutual desire to put the Allied forces in a more advantageous position than those of the Axis Powers; in this instance, this mutual desire allowed for two seemingly unrelated facets of society to collaborate toward a common goal. Moreover, the collaboration of these two facets of society in World War Two created a path of dependency that defined the relationship between…

  • The Influence Of Mathematics In Movies

    The way that the filmmakers had to visually make mathematics present was by showing the struggle behind the character’s failures. The first hour of The Imitation Game demonstrates the growing frustration of the team trying to break the enigma code. They try their hardest in every possible way they can, but they do not succeed until Turing miraculously discovers that the machine must be programmed to a word or phrase that it would be able to recognize in most, if not all, Nazi messages. I think…
