DESCRIPTION:Nowadays it is widely acknowledged that Turing's 1
936 definition of computability\, and his discover
y of the concept of the universal machine\, provid
ed the foundation for the emergence of the digital
computer in 1945. But Turing was not simply a log
ician. In this talk\, I shall bring out how Turing
's youthful 1936 work arose from a wide field of e
nquiry with mathematical\, physical and philosophi
cal elements. Then\, that Turing's broad approach
to mathematics and technology led him through the
wartime cryptographic work into his own electronic
computer plan of 1945. This extraordinary breadth
of knowledge and application also created the set
ting for his later Artificial Intelligence plans a
nd for his theory of biological growth.\n
