The Once and Future Turing PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Once and Future Turing free pdf Alan Turing made a seminal contribution to logic, computation, computer science, artificial intelligence, cryptography and theoretical biology. The articles here, by outstanding writers and thinkers, reflect on these contributions, how the subjects have developed since then, and how they might develop still further. Five themes are explored: language, universality and computation- computing and the brain- computing life and morphogenesis- quantum computing- and the challenge of incomputability. These essays will provoke and engross the reader who wishes to understand better the lasting significance of one of the twentieth century's deepest thinkers.

About S. Barry Cooper

S. Barry Cooper is Professor of Mathematical Logic at the University of Leeds. His research follows that of Alan Turing in its focus on the nature of mental and physical computation. His other books include the prize-winning Alan Turing: His Work and Impact, Computability Theory, New Computational Paradigms, and Computability in Context. Cooper is a leading advocate of multidisciplinary research at the interface between what is known to be computable, and theoretical and practical incomputability. He chaired the Turing Centenary Committee, which coordinated the international Turing Centenary celebrations. He is also President of the Association Computability in Europe, which is responsible for the largest computability-themed international conference series, and he chairs the editorial board of its book series, Theory and Applications of Computability. Andrew Hodges is a Senior Research Fellow in the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford, and a Tutor in Mathematics at Wadham College, Oxford. His main research interest is in the mathematics of fundamental physics, but he is perhaps best known as the author of Alan Turing: The Enigma (1983). This book has been dramatised for stage and television, and most recently inspired the highly successful film The Imitation Game (2014).
