Alan Mathison Turing is the outstanding computing scientist, having set foundations of computability theory and
machine intelligence, which since then has become the highly active research discipline of Artificial Intelligence.
Such has been his impact on computing research that the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
has named its (and certainly the most) prestigious technical award as the Alan M. Turing award.
