Alan Turing (1912-1954) was a remarkably versatile and original mathematician and computer scientist, indeed he helped create the field of computer science. He made major contributions in several areas including the theory of computability, breaking the Enigma code during World War 2, design of early computers, and artificial intelligence. He died tragically at age 41. This year is the centenary of his birth and his achievements are being celebrated in Alan Turing Year, an international programme of events including this one.
