Little people – Story 1

Turing believes machines think
Turing lies with men
Therefore machines do not think

-Alan Turing in a letter to his friend.

Computer Science students and Theory of Computation enthusiasts especially, will remember Turing fondly. He is the man behind the Turing machine.
The man who broke German codes (ENIGMA) in the Second World War.
The man widely held as the Father of Computer Science.
The man whom we owe Artificial Intelligence to.

He was convicted for homosexuality.
Was forced to take estrogen hormone injections.
Was disqualified from continuing secret cryptological work.
And committed suicide by eating a cyanide laced Apple.

Blood riles!!

-Currently reading : The Kite Runner
-If you skip the irritating item songs, Billu (erstwhile Billu Barber) is a sweet little story.
--------------------------------------------------------
-Understanding is what they call it; your comfort level with moral ambiguities.
-Prioritizing is a skill I was not born with.
And the acquired talent isn’t any great shakes either.
---------------------------------------------------------
The countless rehearsals betrayed more than the actual act.
The words did not match the tone of her voice.
There was pain in one and exhaustion in the other.
From across the table the emotions seem to come filtered.

He variously impressed, charmed or disturbed people with his unworldly innocence and his dislike of moral or intellectual compromise.

Very intriguing, Mr.Turing..
He probably ought to have lived in this age, instead of the time of homophobics.. Then again, would it matter.. seldom is genius recognized in its time!

"..seldom is genius recognized in its time!"
that seems to be almost eerily consistent.. across the ages.
Still I think we live in better times.
