Alan Turing: Our September Meeting
After the August break our programme resumes with a presentation by Dean Morrison on the life and ideas of Alan Turing (1912 - 1954). He was an outstanding mathematician, philosopher and computer pioneer, and played an important part in breaking the German Enigma codes during the second world war. The circumstances of his death are still controversial. The previous prime minister Gordon Brown issued an apology for the way he was persecuted by the authorities. A PDF poster advertising the talk is now available to download.
