La revista Nature dedica un suplement a Alan Turing

Il·lustració d'Andy Potts

La prestigiosa revista Nature ha dedicat en el seu darrer número un suplement especial a Alan Turing, ara que es commemora arreu del món el centenari del seu naixement.

Alan Turing, born a century ago this year, is best known for his wartime code-breaking and for inventing the ‘Turing machine’ – the concept at the heart of every computer today. But his legacy extends much further: he founded the field of artificial intelligence, proposed a theory of biological pattern formation and speculated about the limits of computation in physics. In this collection of features and opinion pieces, Nature celebrates the mind that, in a handful of papers over a tragically short lifetime, shaped many of the hottest fields in science today.
