Do The Things That No One Can Imagine

Alan Turing
Do The Things That No One Can Imagine

"Sometimes it is the people no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine."

Alan Turing (1912-1954) was a British mathematician and logician, who made major contributions to mathematics, cryptanalysis, logic, philosophy, and mathematical biology and also to the new areas later named computer science, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and artificial life.

Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence. Despite his accomplishments, he was never fully recognised during his lifetime due to his homosexuality and because much of his work was covered by the Official Secrets Act. The "Alan Turing law" is now an informal term for a 2017 law in the United Kingdom that retroactively pardoned men cautioned or convicted under historical legislation that outlawed homosexual acts.
