This year marks the 100th anniversary of Alan Turing’s birth and there are events happening across the UK to celebrate Turing’s contributions to computer science as we know it today. However, not that many people seem to realise the influence Turing’s work continues to have and the stuggles he faced.
I went along to Kinetica Art Fair back in February, a celebration of technology and design, to find out more about Turing’s life. I got to see Patrick Tresset’s artistic take on the Turing test and had a little bit of chat with Cleverbot along the way.
