It’s been a couple of months since The Imitation Game hit consumes in the UK and now it’s in the US!!
We have a campaign in the UK here to have Turing’s life and work more widely known in schools.
If we can affect change in the Uk then it might spread to America – so even if you’re not British…
Absolutely agree that Alan Turing’s story needs to be taught in schools. I’ve even had people in the tech industry who know about his contributions admit they had no idea about the details of his life or death. It’s a story that needs to be told!
It’s your very last chance to support the Enigmatic Patterns kickstarter! Just a couple hours left to back this Alan Turing graphic novel. I’ve been blown away by the support. We’ve reached two stretch goals, including a digital Ada Lovelace … Continue reading →
The idea that led to the invention of the computer, an idea that Alan Turing put forward in his 1936 paper ‘Computable Numbers’, did not start with a mathematical puzzle. It started with a love story, and a gay love story at that.
Alan Turing became friends with Christopher Morcom in 1928. Morcom…
So true… Christopher changed Alan Turing, and Alan Turing changed the world.
The story of how Alan Turing’s first love changed his life…
spaceagepress: #EnigmaticPatterns has surpassed its first stretch goal! Not only is this #AlanTuring graphic novel happening, all backers will get a digital #AdaLovelace mini comic! www.Kickstarter.EnigmaticPatterns.com We are currently just a few hundred dollars away from the second stretch goal, … Continue reading →
One of the best things about working with pen, brush and ink is that you actually have a beautiful piece of original physical art at the end of it, completely unique and all its own. And I’d like to give … Continue reading →
So happy to announce that the Enigmatic Patterns Kickstarter launches tomorrow, with some great stuff in store for Alan Turing fans, including original art work, T-shirts, posters and even a cozy handmade Turing Machine pillow! kickstarter
Working on the video for the upcoming Enigmatic Patterns kickstarter! Alan Turing changed the world, and in return was convicted and sentenced to chemical castration for being an openly gay man. In one of his final letters, he wrote:
I fear the following syllogism may be used by some in the future:
Turing believes machines think
Turing lies with men
Therefore machines do not think.
The Turing machine is a theoretical machine, introduced by Alan Turing in 1936, with a particular construction. It has a tape, sort of like a film tape in that it is made up of cells, and each cell can contain data. However, the tape in a Turing machine
is infinitely long…
I’ve spent quite some time imagining the best way to portray a Turing Machine…
Alan Turing, the genius who imagined the foundations for modern computers, also launched groundbreaking research into artificial intelligence, discovered mathematical patterns in biology and DNA that continue to give scientists new insights into all life, and led the team that … Continue reading →
