Watching The Imitation Game

Alan Mathison Turing born in Maida Vale (Paddington), West London 23 June 1912. Father of Modern Computer Science and Artificial Intelegence.
In 1939 during the second World War. Turing worked for the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) at Bletchley Park, Britain’s codebreaking centre. To break the German encrypted message or cypher call Enigma…

A couple years after he succes break Enigma, in 1952 he was given a difficult option between go to prison or having hormonal treatment with oestrogen injection (suntik kebiri), because of his sexual deviation (homosexual is illegal at that time).

Setelah setahun pemerintah memerintahkan terapi hormon, Alan Turing bunuh diri pada 7 Juni 1954.

Antara tahun 1885-1967 sekitar 49.000 homoseksual dijatuhi hukuman atas perbuatan tak senonoh oleh hukum inggris.

Pada 2013 Ratu Elizabeth II memberikan pengampunan Anumerta Kerajaan pada Turing atas pencapaiannya.

Ahli sejarah memperkirakan pemecahan kode Enigma telah memperpendek perang lebih dari dua tahun dan menyelamatkan lebih dari 14 juta jiwa.

Pemerintah terus merahasiakannya lebih dari 50 tahun.

Pekerjaan Turing menginspirasi beberapa generasi akan penelitian yang bernama “Turing Machine”. Saat ini kita menyebutnya Komputer.

Regardless of his sexual deviation, he remains a professor who gives great progress for the world through his invention.

One of his works that I often use is “Captcha”. One idea that came from the paper “The Imitation Game”, and the experiment was introduced by Alan in his 1950 paper “Computer Machinery and Intelegence”. Basically is how to differentiating between human and machine. This captcha is used to fight against spam and is still being used. even by google, yahoo and facebook.

Best Quote:“Sometimes it’s the people no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.” (Terkadang hanya orang tak didugalah yang bisa melakukan hal yang diluar dugaan.)
