"Sometimes it is the people no one can imagine anything of, who do the things no one can imagine."
Often hailed as the father of computer science and artificial intelligence. Alan Turing was an English Computer Scientist who's work cracking the German Enigma code in World War Two helped to end the war and saved countless lives.
Here is a brief synopsis of his life.
"The isolated man does not develop any intellectual power. It is necessary for him to be immersed in an environment of other men, whose techniques he absorbs during the first twenty years of his life. He may then perhaps do a little research of his own and make a very few discoveries which are passed on to other men. From this point of view the search for new techniques must be regarded as carried out by the human community as a whole, rather than by individuals."
