Alan Turing and The Enigma Machine

Foredrag ved Dr. James Grime

MANDAG D. 8. OKTOBER 2018
UNF Aalborg

Alan Turing was one of our great 20th century mathematicians, and pioneer of computer science. However, he may be best remembered as one of the leading code breakers of Bletchley Park during World War II. It was Turing's brilliant insights and mathematical mind that helped break Enigma, the apparently unbreakable code used by the German military. We present a history of both Alan Turing and the Enigma, leading up to this fascinating battle of man against machine - including a full demonstration of an original WWII Enigma Machine!

Dr James Grime is a mathematician and public speaker. Formerly of the Millennium Mathematics Project for the University of Cambridge, James now runs The Enigma Project and travels the world giving public talks on the history and mathematics of codes and code breaking. James is also a presenter of the YouTube channel Numberphile.
