Product description


A timely and important book … [an] exploration of the possibilities of AI and beyond.

-- Sir Adrian Smith FRS

Strips away the encrusted hagiography that has developed around Alan Turing in recent years … a passionate argument for the lessons we should draw from his life and his extraordinary scientific achievements.

-- Robert Hannigan

Fascinating and highly readable ... My wife Rohini and I feel particularly grateful to have a special link to [Alan Turing] through our house in Coonoor … where Alan’s mother lived for many years.

-- Nandan Nilekani

Essential reading for anyone who thinks they know the history of Alan Turing … a significant reappraisal of his meaning for us today.

-- Dr Tilly Blyth

Dermot compels us to learn from his uncle’s incredible life and many achievements in our own pursuit of creating a better world for all.

-- Liz Carr --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
