It’s only a slight exaggeration to say that the British mathematician Alan Turing (1912-1954) saved the Allies from the Nazis, invented the computer and artificial intelligence, and anticipated gay liberation by decades--all before his suicide at age forty-one. This classic biography of the founder of computer science, reissued on the centenary of his birth with a substantial new preface by the author, is the definitive account of an extraordinary mind and life.

A gripping story of mathematics, computers, cryptography, and homosexual persecution, Andrew Hodges's acclaimed book captures both the inner and outer drama of Turing's life.Hodges tells how Turing's revolutionary idea of 1936--the concept of a universal machine--laid the foundation for the modern computer and how Turing brought the idea to practical realization in 1945 with his electronic design. The book also tells how this work was directly related to Turing's leading role in breaking the German Enigma ciphers during World War II, a scientific triumph that was critical to Allied victory in the Atlantic. At the same time, this is the tragic story of a man who, despite his wartime service, was eventually arrested, stripped of his security clearance, and forced to undergo a humiliating treatment program--all for trying to live honestly in a society that defined homosexuality as a crime.

说英国数学家艾伦图灵(1912-1954)从纳粹救出了盟友,发明了电脑和人工智能,并预计几十年的同性恋解放 - 四十一岁之前的自杀就是轻微的夸张。计算机科学创始人的经典传记,在出生一百周年之际,由作者大量新的序言重新发行,是一个非凡的思想和生活的明确记录。

数学,计算机,密码学和同性恋迫害的紧张故事,安德鲁·霍奇斯(Andrew Hodges)的着名书籍捕捉了图灵生活中的内外部戏剧。霍奇斯说明了图灵革命思想1936年 - 通用机器的概念 - 奠定了基础对于现代电脑而言,图灵如何在1945年通过他的电子设计将这个想法带入实际实现。这本书还讲述了这项工作与图灵在第二次世界大战期间在打破德国谜密码方面的主导作用之间的直接关系,这是对联合大西洋胜利至关重要的科学胜利。与此同时,这是一个男人的悲剧性故事,尽管他的战时服务最终被逮捕,剥夺了他的安全许可,并被迫进行了一个羞辱性的治疗方案 - 所有这些都是为了在一个社会中诚实地生活将同性恋定义为犯罪。
