    A collection of articles by Alan Turing on several topics each with a lengthy preface and sometimes a few relevant articles by other people The first topic is computability theory; Turing did not prove the existence of noncomputable functions by considering the Halting problem but by using the Cantor diagonal argument; he also invented hypercomputation by considering Turing machines euipped with oracles The second topic is Turing's cryptanalytic work on breaking the German naval Engima which was one of the great engineering projects of the Second World War alongside Manhattan project The third topic is artificial intelligence including the famous paper that introduces the Turing test; every student of computer science must read it The last section has miscellanea including a paper that suggests that a diffusion reaction is responsible for embryogenesis; developmental biology must have progressed in the last 50 years and I don't know how much of this paper is still considered true but the point is that Stephen Wolfram did not invent the idea of simple rules giving rise to complicated patternsJenny18 is a sex chat bot that passes the Turing test Turing did not consider the situation where the judge uses his penis rather than his brain when making the judgment

    The editor provides some details of Turing's biography and relevant international events The material includes published and informally distributed papers such as On Computable Numbers with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem 1936 and professional correspondenceThere are four partsComputable Numbers Turing's papers on an approach to dealing with the EntscheidungsproblemEnigma How the cryptography of the Enigma machines employed by the German military was attacked and eventually defeatedArtificial Intelligence Turing's insightful foresight of the potential of computing machines The editor surveys reactionsArtificial Life How abstract simulations of catalysis reactions could give potential models which offer insights into natural phenomena

    Worth it for On Computable Numbers alone Turing was bewilderingly prescient

  4. says:

    A fascinating and essential book for delving into the workmind of Alan Turing Father of AI the Turing Test mathematics logic and work on gasesliuidspatterns biological meets structural anomalism code etc

  5. says:

    The explanations of the papers presented are great The papers are hard to get through but entertaining I didn't realize how much of CS that Turing envisioned right at the beginning Neural Nets Genetic Algorithms etc He immediately made the leap from universal machine to AI

  6. says:

    Recommended reading in careful comparison with the movie The Imitation Game
