    Biography: Alan Mathison Turing Alan Mathison Turing was surrounded by enigma, not only did he break many cryptic codes but he also lived a mysterious life. Turing was born on June 23, 1912 in Paddington, London to Julius Mathison and Ethel Sara Turing. Turing’s father, Julius, was an officer in the British administration in India when he decided that his son would be raised in England. Turing had an older brother named John, who also had a childhood determined by the demands of the class

    memory subroutines, the Turning Machine, the Turing Test, and the application of algorithms to computers are all ideas somehow related to this man. Alan Mathison Turing was born in Paddington, London, on June 23, 1912. He was a precocious child and began his interests in science and mathematics at a young age, but was never concerned about other right-brain classes such as English. This continued until an important friend of his passed away and set Turing on a path to achieve what his friend could

    Mathison Turing was undoubtedly one of the greatest pioneers of our computer world. We can clearly label him the founder of what we know today as modern computer science, but beyond that, he was also a great mathematician, a code-breaker, philosopher, and certainly a risk-taker. His contributions to society not only influenced the development of today’s computers, but also seriously impacted the outcome of a second world war. Born on June 23, 1912 in London, England to Ethel and Julius Turing, Alan

    (BBC 1). Different goals have been set for the science of Artificial Intelligence, but according to Whitby the most mentioned idea about the goal of AI is provided by the Turing Test. This test is also called the imitation game, since it is basically a game in which a computer imitates a conversating human. In an analysis of the Turing Test I will focus on its features, its historical background and the evaluation of its validity and importance. First of all, the Test itself doesn’t really have any

    Alan Turing was a pioneer in the world of computers and technology by contributing to the fields of mathematics, computer science, and artificial intelligence, along with other fields as well. He lived from June 23, 1912 until June 7, 1954. Born in London, he spent his childhood living in England as the son of a member of the Indian Civil Service. While his father was commissioned in India, he and his brother lived in numerous different English foster homes. As a child, he expressed a strong interest

    Turing: Concept of Computation

    Turing: Concept of Computation Turing's analysis of the concept of computation is indisputably the foundation of computationalism, which is, in turn, the foundation of cognitive science. What is disputed is whether computationalism is explanatorily bankrupt. For Turing, all computers are digital computers and something becomes a (digital) computer just in case its 'behavior' is interpreted as implementing, executing, or satisfying some (mathematical) function 'f'. As 'computer' names a nonnatural

    The Turing Test: An Overview In this essay, I describe in detail a hypothetical test contemporarily known as the Turing test along with it’s respective objective. In addition, I examine a distinguished objection to the test, and Turing’s consequential response to it. Created by English mathematician Alan Turing, the Turing test (formerly known as the imitation game) is a behavioral approach that assesses a system’s ability to think. In doing so, it can determine whether or not that system is intelligent

    <a href="http://www.geocities.com/vaksam/">Sam Vaknin's Psychology, Philosophy, Economics and Foreign Affairs Web Sites In 1936 an American (Alonzo Church) and a Briton (Alan M. Turing) published independently (as is often the coincidence in science) the basics of a new branch in Mathematics (and logic): computability or recursive functions (later to be developed into Automata Theory). The authors confined themselves to dealing with computations which involved “effective” or “mechanical” methods

    The Turing Test-A.m Turing The hypothesis all begins of when Turing poses the question "Can Machines Think" and from that inquiry, Turing starts to plan by including the machine to a redirection called "imitation game", where three people which comprise of a man, woman and analyst play a preoccupation. The inspector must have the capacity to tell who is the machine and who is the human(computing Machinery and Intelligence, p. 471) Turing happens to weaken the sort of machine that can viable mirror

    1912 a boy named Alan Turing was born in Paddington, London. A boy known today as the founder of computer science, a war hero, and the creator of prominent technology in the twenty first century. Turing grew up fostered in various English homes as his father worked in the British Administration in India. Alan developed his intellect when he studied at King’s College, Cambridge. His childhood interests in physics led him to the logical foundations of quantum mechanics. As Turing further developed his
