Everyone knows the story of the code-breaker and computer science pioneer Alan Turing. Except… our knowledge of Alan Turing has been obscured by decades of misinterpretation and misunderstanding. In this discussion Dermot Turing strips off these layers of super-encipherment to disclose the real story.
Was Alan Turing actually much of a codebreaker?
What is the meaning of Alan Turing’s trial, his suicide, the Royal Pardon, the £50 note, and the film The Imitation Game?
Drawing from Alan Turing’s background, his discoveries and his life-story, The National Archives uncover a fresh legacy from Alan Turing for the 21st century. This talk will be presented on Microsoft Teams
Free. The talk will last approximately 30-40 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.
