August 17, 2012

In the mid-1930's, Alan Turing made the revolutionary discovery that launched the digital age.  He proved that information can be translated and communicated using nothing but a series of ones and zeroes.  Every digital device we know today uses Turing's mathematics.  And that was just the first of Turing's intellectual achievements.  Biographer Andrew Hodges explains Turing's genius.
