Tube Alloys

EnigmaWe mentioned a month ago Alan Turing’s upcoming 100 anniversary.

Nature has done far more than that, putting together a special issue in honor of the mathematician, cryptographer and AI pioneer, to include a podcast that talks to his biographer about Turing’s famous 1936 paper on computable numbers, his contribution to cracking the German Enigma ciphers, and his thoughts on machine intelligence.

All of which is fascinating and highly recommended. 1
