"Alan Turing is the son of Julius Mathison and Ethel Sara Turing. As his father worked in India in the British Administration, Alan and his brother spent most of their childhood in foster care."
"While reading at Sherborne, Alan develops a strong friendship with Christopher Morcom, but Christopher suddenly dies of tuberculosis, leaving Alan in great devastated. This death led Alan to explore possibilities of mind and brain, hoping to keep Christopher alive."
"Alan graduates with distinction in Mathematics from Cambridge and is honored as a Fellow of King’s College. During this time, Turing explored abstract mathematical theories such as probability and logic, laying the ground for his “universal computing machine”, or Turing machine."
"Alan obtains a PhD in mathematics from Princeton University, and published a paper on computable numbers, that is widely considered as the first paper discussing the idea of computer science."
"As the UK enters was with Germany, Alan joins the GC&CS at Bletchley Park and takes command of Hut 8, responsible for cryptanalysis of the messages from Enigma."
"With Gord on Welchman, Alan builds a machine, the “Bombe”, to automate crytpanalysis of the Enigma messages, helping the Allies understand German communications 2 years later. Historians estimate this work helped shorten the war in Europe by 2 to 4 years."
"At the end of the war, Alan Turing is appointed Office of the British Empire by King George VI for his wartime services, but his work remained secret for long."
"Alan publishes his famous paper ’Computing Machinery and Intelligence’, introducing the idea of the imitation game, or the Turing Test. This is a key milestone in the field of artificial intelligence, as it compares human and machine outputs."
"The police finds out about Turing’s relationship with a man, at a time where homosexuality was a criminal offence in the UK. After his trial, he is offered chemical treatment as an alternative to prison."
"While the program did not run on a computer, Turing is credited with t he first computer chess program through an algorithm that carried instructions to the board."
"Turing committed suicide at his home by eating an apple laced with cyanide."
"Following a petition by British citizens, Turing was granted a royal pardon posthumously by Queen Elizabeth, revoking his criminal conviction."
