Alan Turing

Alan Mathison Turing 23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954) was an English  computer mathematician, scientist, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, and theoretical biologist. 

Turing was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general-purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence .Despite these accomplishments, he was never fully recognised in his home country during his lifetime due to his homosexuality and because much of his work was covered by the Official Secrets Act
