John McCarthy (4 Sep 1927 – 24 Oct 2011) Computer and cognitive scientist. Coined term "artificial intelligence" (AI), developed LISP programming language family, significantly influenced the design of the ALGOL programming language, popularized timesharing, and was very influential in the early development of AI. Received many accolades and honours, the Turing Award, United States National Medal of Science, and the Kyoto Prize.
In the 1940s and '50s, a group of eccentric geniuses—led by John von Neumann—gathered at the newly created Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. Their joint project was the realization of the theoretical universal machine, an idea that had been put forth by mathematician Alan Turing.

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.
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

+ [ the way they look at eachother intensely👀 yes johnlock wasnt confirmed but, john is family, "if i'm gone i know what you could become." THEYRE RAISING ROSIE TOGETHER. Guys, their relationship is beautiful and let's just cherish what we have🌸 . Me: *sees one photo of Benedict on set for The Current War* Me: MY BOY IS GOING TO BE NOMINATED FOR AN OSCAR. I mean, I'm still confused to how he didn't win an oscar for playing the role of Alan turing because he was just phenomenal. My boy…
