"It is possible to invent a single machine which can be used to compute any computable sequence,” 24-year old Alan Turing announced in 1936. In Turing’s Cathedral, George Dyson focuses on a small group of men and women, led by John von Neumann at the IAS at Princeton, who built one of the first computers to realize Turing’s vision of a Universal Machine. Their work would break the distinction between numbers that mean things and numbers that do things—and our universe would never be the…

An Olympic honour for Alan Turing : The 2012 Olympics offer the perfect chance to mark the anniversary of a great mathematician – and marathon runner.  The last time Britain hosted the Olympics, in 1948, Turing tried out for the British Olympic marathon team. He came fifth in the trials. / John Graham-Cumming | @guardian | photo : The Alan Turing Internet Scrapbook [http://www.turing.org.uk/turing/scrapbook/run.html] | #AlanTuringYear

004 DYS La reveladora historia de cómo surgió el universo digital tras la segunda guerra mundial. «Es posible inventar una sola máquina que pueda utilizarse para computar cualquier secuencia computable», anunció en 1936 un joven Alan Turing de veinticuatro años. En los años 40 y 50 un reducido grupo de hombres y mujeres, liderado por John von Neumann, se reunió en Princeton, New Jersey, para comenzar la construcción de una de los primeros ordenadores.

Why don’t we know the name of John Atanasoff as well as we know those of Alan Turing and John von Neumann? Because he never patented his computing machine, and because the developers of the far-better-known ENIAC almost certainly stole critical ideas from him. Jane Smiley tells the quintessentially American story of John Atanasoff with technical clarity and narrative drive, making the race to develop digital computing as gripping as a real-life techno-thriller.
