ALAN TURING

‘A theoretical computer with two or more possible states; which can react to an input to produce an output’

Turing conceived the idea of a universal machine that employed an algorithm to solve a problem, writing the algorithm as a set of instructions using a standard code.

In 1950 Turing suggested that it must be possible to program computers to acquire human intelligence and devised the test suggesting that if the response from a computer is indistinguishable from that of a human, the computer could be said to be intelligent.
