Alan Turing (l9l2–l954) made seminal contributions to mathematical logic,
computation, computer science, artificial intelligence, cryptography and theoretical biology.
In this volume, outstanding scientific thinkers take a fresh look at the great
range of Turing’s contributions, on how the subjects have developed since his
time, and how they might develop still further.
These specially commissioned essays will provoke and engross the reader who
wishes to understand better the lasting-significance of one of the twentieth
century’s deepest thinkers.
