Download and read online Imitation Game in PDF and EPUB Award winning authors Jim Ottaviani and Leland Purvis present a historically accurate graphic novel biography of English mathematician and scientist Alan Turing in The Imitation Game. English mathematician and scientist Alan Turing (1912–1954) is credited with many of the foundational principles of contemporary computer science. The Imitation Game presents a historically accurate graphic novel biography of Turing’s life, including his groundbreaking work on the fundamentals of cryptography and artificial intelligence. His code breaking efforts led to the cracking of the German Enigma during World War II, work that saved countless lives and accelerated the Allied defeat of the Nazis. While Turing’s achievements remain relevant decades after his death, the story of his life in post-war Europe continues to fascinate audiences today. Award-winning duo Jim Ottaviani (the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Feynman and Primates) and artist Leland Purvis (an Eisner and Ignatz Award nominee and occasional reviewer for the Comics Journal) present a factually detailed account of Turing’s life and groundbreaking research—as an unconventional genius who was arrested, tried, convicted, and punished for being openly gay, and whose innovative work still fuels the computing and communication systems that define our modern world. Computer science buffs, comics fans, and history aficionados will be captivated by this riveting and tragic story of one of the 20th century’s most unsung heroes.

Download and read online Turing s Imitation Game in PDF and EPUB Can you tell the difference between talking to a human and talking to a machine? Or, is it possible to create a machine which is able to converse like a human? In fact, what is it that even makes us human? Turing's Imitation Game, commonly known as the Turing Test, is fundamental to the science of artificial intelligence. Involving an interrogator conversing with hidden identities, both human and machine, the test strikes at the heart of any questions about the capacity of machines to behave as humans. While this subject area has shifted dramatically in the last few years, this book offers an up-to-date assessment of Turing's Imitation Game, its history, context and implications, all illustrated with practical Turing tests. The contemporary relevance of this topic and the strong emphasis on example transcripts makes this book an ideal companion for undergraduate courses in artificial intelligence, engineering or computer science.

Download and read online The Society Individual Conflict in Morten Tyldum s Film The Imitation Game 2014 in PDF and EPUB Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Communications - Interpersonal Communication, grade: 86, LCC International University, course: Interpersonal Communication, language: English, abstract: "The Imitation Game" (2014) is a historical drama movie directed by Morten Tyldum based on the book "Alan Turing: The Enigma" by Andrew Hodges. The film is about life of a famous British mathematician and cryptanalyst Alan Turing, who is famous by the deciphering of the German Enigma coding machine during the World War II. On the one hand, the movie tells a story of a person with a brilliant mind who changed the course of the world history, but on the other hand, this film is a personal drama that depicts complicated relationships between Alan and other people. Alan has lack of communication skills and his perception of the reality differs from others’ ones. Being misunderstood and rejected by people because of the peculiarity during his college years, Turing closes himself from the world, except one friend. At the beginning of the World War II he joins the secret cryptographists’ team, creates a computer-prototype machine and solves the Enigma mystery. The film brightly shows main character’s communication difficulties and his inability to collaborate in a team. After years, being caught by a policeman, executed and suffered from the punishment, the only one person who could understand him, Joan Clarke, visits him and witnesses his mental and health problems – the results of the execution. I found it very interesting to analyze the development of the relationships between Turing and other people in the movie, how he confronts and deals with life and communication difficulties, and also Turing’s personality. The film’s thread of society’s suppressing on Alan and, eventually, death from it, also shows an inability of the society to accept extraordinary individuals. That is why I chose three themes to analyze and provide examples from the film – perception, identity and relationship maintenance. The purpose of my paper is to show that Alan Turing tries to understand the society, but the society does not want to understand and to admit him.

Download and read online Alan Turing The Enigma in PDF and EPUB A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The official book behind the Academy Award-winning film The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley It is only a slight exaggeration to say that the British mathematician Alan Turing (1912-1954) saved the Allies from the Nazis, invented the computer and artificial intelligence, and anticipated gay liberation by decades--all before his suicide at age forty-one. This New York Times–bestselling biography of the founder of computer science, with a new preface by the author that addresses Turing's royal pardon in 2013, is the definitive account of an extraordinary mind and life. Capturing both the inner and outer drama of Turing’s life, Andrew Hodges tells how Turing’s revolutionary idea of 1936--the concept of a universal machine--laid the foundation for the modern computer and how Turing brought the idea to practical realization in 1945 with his electronic design. The book also tells how this work was directly related to Turing’s leading role in breaking the German Enigma ciphers during World War II, a scientific triumph that was critical to Allied victory in the Atlantic. At the same time, this is the tragic account of a man who, despite his wartime service, was eventually arrested, stripped of his security clearance, and forced to undergo a humiliating treatment program--all for trying to live honestly in a society that defined homosexuality as a crime. The inspiration for a major motion picture starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, Alan Turing: The Enigma is a gripping story of mathematics, computers, cryptography, and homosexual persecution.

Download and read online Alan Turing het Enigma in PDF and EPUB Er is niet veel overdreven aan de stelling dat de Britse wiskundige Alan Turing de geallieerden heeft gered in hun strijd tegen de Nazi's, dat hij de uitvinder was van de computer, de bedenker van kunstmatige intelligentie en een voorloper in de strijd om vrijheid voor homoseksuelen - en dat alles voordat hij, 41 jaar oud, zelfmoord pleegde. Deze schitterende biografie vertelt het definitieve verhaal van een uitzonderlijk genie en een even uitzonderlijk leven. Alan Turings grote kracht was zijn briljante analytische geest gecombineerd met zijn gave voor het ontwerpen van 'intelligente' machines. In 1940 wist hij met zijn vindingen de Duitse Enigma-code te kraken - de code waarmee de Duitse lucht- en zeemacht alle communicatie beveiligde. Hij bracht er het Duitse oorlogscommando een slag mee toe die de oorlog bekortte en vele mensenlevens redde. Het was niet Turings enige wapenfeit. Al voor de oorlog werkte de briljante wiskundige aan het concept van een universele machine, een idee dat hij in 1945 uitwerkte tot de allereerste digitale computer. In 1952 kwam een abrupt einde aan de glansrijke carrière van Alan Turing, toen hij door de autoriteiten werd opgepakt wegens homoseksualiteit, een strafbaar feit dat in die tijd nog actief werd vervolgd. In het land dat hij zes jaar lang in het belang van de vrijheid had gediend, volgde een veroordeling en een mensonterende behandeling. In 1954 pleegde Alan Turing, 41 jaar oud, zelfmoord. Alan Turing, het Enigmaverscheen voor het eerst in 1983 en kreeg een glorieuze ontvangst. Enkele jaren geleden volgde een herziene editie, ingeleid door Douglas Hofstadter.
