But it appears that the stimulus for effective communication and competition came only from contact with another very able youth, a year ahead of him at Sherborne, to whom Alan Turing found himself powerfully attracted in He set as a particular goal the explanation for the appearance of the Fibonacci numbers in the leaf patterns of plants Alan turing presentation most noticeable in the close-packed spirals of sunflower heads and fir cones.
In contrast, the more complex Enigma methods used in German Naval communications were generally regarded as unbreakable. Happy to work alone on a problem that defeated others, Turing cracked the system at the end ofbut it required the capture of further material by the Navy, and the development of sophisticated statistical processes, before regular decryption could begin in mid His boyhood scientific interests were a trial to his mother whose perpetual terror was that he would not be acceptable to the English Public School.
But imagine, as Turing did, each particular algorithm written out as a set of instructions in a standard form. In April he showed his result to Newman; but at the same moment the parallel conclusion of the American logician Alonzo Church became known, and Turing was robbed of the full reward for his originality.
Turing at Manchester could perhaps have led the world in software development. Could there exist, at least in principle, a definite method or process by which it could be decided whether any given mathematical assertion was provable? A later talk February depicted a national computer centre with remote terminals, and the prospect of the machine taking over more and more of its own programming work.
State security also seems the likely cause of what he described as another intense crisis in Marchinvolving police searching for a visiting Norwegian who had come to see him.
Turing crossed the Atlantic in Novemberfor highest-level liaison not only on the desperate U-boat Enigma crisis, but on the electronic encipherment of speech signals between Roosevelt and Churchill.
Turing projected a computer able to switch at will from numerical work to algebra, codebreaking, file handling, or chess-playing.
By the end ofas the United States entered the war, the battle of the Atlantic was moving towards Allied advantage. The wit and drama of the Turing Test has proved a lasting stimulus to later thinkers, and the paper a classic contribution to the philosophy and practice of Artificial Intelligence research.
Instead, he was increasingly preoccupied with more immediate problems which demanded logical skills. But he was given, and read, later commenting on its seminal influence, a popular book called Natural Wonders Every Child Should Know.
That revolution was caused by the failure of pre-scientific methods to penetrate the mechanical Enigma cipher used by Germany. For, as he settled in Manchester, buying his own first house at outlying Wilmslow, he had an entirely fresh field in view.
One can only speculate, but it looks as if Turing found in the concept of the Turing machine something that would satisfy the fascination with the problem of Mind that Christopher Morcom had sparked; his total originality lay in seeing the relevance of mathematical logic to a problem originally seen as one of physics.
His later thought was strongly determinist and atheistic in character. Turing, who became a London solicitor, showed no sign of it. In the meanwhile the idea lived only in his mind. His work on the morphogenetic theory continued.
This was submitted to the NPL as an internal report, and never published in his lifetime. Bertrand Russell had thought of logic as a solid foundation for mathematical truth, but many questions had since been raised about how truth could be captured by any formalism.
A factor in his life unknown to most around him was that he had also continued to work for GCHQ, the post-war successor to Bletchley Park, on the basis of a personal connection with Alexander, now its director.
