Alan Turing's birthday: The Man Behind The Modern Computer

Arthur van Hoff pointed my to Turing's birthday today. This movie made by the BBC and shared on BBC gives a great short version of Alan Turings life, achievements, success and death. "Turing is often considered to be the father of modern computer science. He provided an influential formalization of the concept of the algorithm and computation with the Turing machine. With the Turing test, meanwhile, he made a significant and characteristically provocative contribution to the debate regarding artificial intelligence: whether it will ever be possible to say that a machine is conscious and can think."
