This video discusses the work of Alan Turing during World War II, when he developed the code-breaking machine known as the Turing Machine. Turing's work was instrumental in helping the Allies to win the war, but he was persecuted for being gay and eventually committed suicide. His story is told in this documentary, which provides an interesting look at the history of computing.

  • 00:00:00 In 1944, one of the key moments in contemporary history took place as Allied forces landed on Normandy beaches, eventually leading to the successful Allied campaign against Nazi Germany. One of the key players in this victory was mathematician and computer scientist, Alan Turing, whose abstract and theoretical interests led to important advances in fields such as computer science and artificial intelligence. Turing was persecuted for being gay, and was subjected to chemical castration and eventually died of suicide in 1941, at the age of 41. Professor Coupland has dedicated much of his career to this extraordinary talent, and Turing's work is the foundation of modern computing. His story is recounted in the video, which focuses on the Allies' successful battle against German submarines in Liverpool in 1944.
  • 00:05:00 This video discusses the history of the Battle of Blenheim, which was fought in the summer of 1704. The British Allies, led by General John Churchill, landed 100,000 soldiers in one day, but most importantly, by the end of the same month, they had amassed a million pounds in war materiel, including rifles, artillery, vehicles, and fuel. By early June, the armies were in the field, and by early July, they had won two battles, the Battle of the Atlantic and the Battle of the Scheldt, which allowed them to land in Normandy in early August. The Battle of Blenheim was fought primarily on the ground, with British troops attacking German forces occupying a large mansion in the town of Blakeleslie, far from the battlefields. This small town, which would later become known as Bletchley Park, became the birthplace of the world's first electronic data processing industry, which employed over 9,000 people by the end of the war. Turing's ideas, which were decades ahead of their time, played an important role in the war effort. Turing's voice can be heard in this video, as he discusses his ideas about the relationship between matter and spirit. He also speaks
  • 00:10:00 In this video, historian and author, G. David Stone, discusses the life and work of mathematician and computer scientist Alan Turing, who is best known for his work on artificial intelligence and early computer technology. Turing was fascinated by questions throughout his life, and in 1935, he faced a problem that would change the course of his existence. He was attending classes on the foundations of mathematics at Saint John's College in Cambridge, England, when he was introduced to a new theory by German mathematician Gilbert. Gilbert's theory posed a problem that could only be solved by using an absolute method - a method that could be applied reliably without the intervention of human intelligence. Turing developed a model of a machine that could embody this method and began to work on it obsessively. However, he never published his work on the machine and did not reveal it to anyone for decades. When World War II began, Turing realized the potential implications of his invention and decided to take precautions. He devised a method for encrypting messages using a code known only to himself and a few other trusted individuals. This allowed him to communicate with the British government covertly, helping to plan successful military operations. Turing's work on cryptography soon became a critical component of the war effort, and he is credited with developing the
  • 00:15:00 In 1939, Alan Turing, a British mathematician, invented the first computer, the Turing machine. The machine was able to translate code into readable text. However, the machine's Achilles' heel was its security. Turing's team of cryptographers solved the machine's security in a short amount of time, and used it to decode German messages during World War II. Today, Turing is celebrated for his contributions to mathematics and computer science, but he is also remembered for his work on cryptography. His work on the Enigma machine, which helped Allied forces win the war, is still considered one of the most important achievements in cryptography.
  • 00:20:00 The video discusses the work of Alan Turing in the early days of the war against Nazi Germany, when he developed the machine-readable code called "Enigma". Turing's efforts proved to be crucial in helping the Allies to decode enemy messages. 50 years later, a modern version of his machine is still being used to decode messages.
  • 00:25:00 In 1940, the British were fighting a war against Nazi Germany, and one of their key strategies was to blockade Germany's supplies of fuel and food. However, the Nazi regime developed a code that allowed their submarines to bypass the blockade, and in September of that year, the first battle of the war took place: the Battle of the North Atlantic. The Nazi submarines, using a code that had been broken by the British, were able to sink dozens of British ships. This victory was due, in part, to the large number of submarines that the Nazi regime had at its disposal. By the end of the year, over 500 Nazi submarines had been deployed in the North Atlantic, greatly hampering the British war effort. In October of that year, the Second Battle of the North Atlantic began. This time, the Nazi submarines were using a new strategy: they were attacking convoys one by one, in order to avoid being detected. By the end of the year, the Nazi submarines had managed to sink over 100 British ships, bringing the British war effort to a standstill. The Nazi submarines continued to be a major threat to the British war effort throughout 1940, 1941, and 1942, but in 1943, the Allies began to develop new
  • 00:30:00 In 2017, the curious war of Alan Turing was the focus of a documentary titled "HD Documental Ciencia 2017 - La curiosa guerra de Alan Turing." In it, military officials struggle to warn mariners about the deadly consequences of sharing classified information, while the Germans seem to be cruising towards victory in the battle of the Atlantic. However, the tactic of the pack of lions has a weak point, and they heavily rely on radio communications to decode Allied codes, which the Allies could potentially use to their advantage. However, privacy remains a fundamental concern for the Navy, and the Nazi regime always insisted on elevating security levels to 100 at Bletchley Park. All seem to think that the Navy's machine code machine, known as the "delfín" in Blake's "Blakeslee Park," is unbreakable, but Alastair de Aniston, commander in chief, makes a conclusive declaration in the documentary. The Germans propose that they not listen to their messages and I do not see how you're going to achieve this. Turing knows that hidden within these strings of characters are vital information that could save lives and perhaps change the course of the war. Days go by indistinguishable, and all attempts at breaking the code fail systematically
  • 00:35:00 In 1941, the Allied war effort gained an important advantage when German submarines were captured. In June of that year, one submarine was forced to surface and was promptly destroyed by Allied forces. However, contrary to expectations, the submarine did not sink. Allied sailors quickly rescued the crew and recovered valuable documents, including codes for several months. This discovery led to the successful decoding of the German naval Enigma code, which prevented many Allied ships from being sunk and helped to turn the tide of the war in the Allies' favor. In the summer of 1943, British codebreakers succeeded in breaking the Japanese code. This led to the development of more advanced encrypted messages, and one of these breakthroughs was the decoding of the German naval Touring code. This discovery was crucial in helping the Allies to advance in the war.
  • 00:40:00 In the early stages of World War II, British intelligence was able to intercept and decode German communications, allowing the Allies to plan their strategy and conduct successful operations. One such operation was the Battle of Stalingrad, in which Germany's Army was nearly defeated. In order to retake the initiative, Hitler moved his armored divisions to the Russian city of Courland, which the Allies did not expect. As a result, the attack required a great deal of planning, which many debates and conversations among Hitler's generals took place through the turn of the century. In Blakely Park, near London, almost nobody believed when they read what Hitler was saying to his generals in Russia. They could even read what he was saying to the Russians back and they would reply with a response that allowed the Germans to almost completely understand the German plans in positions. Flowers, an electrical engineer, designs a giant machine, the Colossus, that can contain 2000 vacuum tubes. Turing is enthusiastic about the invention and it finally ceases to seem like a dream. In talks and articles about the subject, it is customary to offer a reassuring note about human characteristics that machines will never be able to duplicate. It is said that a machine will never write in a correct English and will be sexually unappealing, and
  • 00:45:00 In 2017, a documentary called "HD Documental Ciencia" covered the history of mathematician and computer scientist, Alan Turing. Turing was instrumental in shortenening World War II by developing the codebreaking machine, the Turing Machine. However, he was persecuted by the government and died in 1941 before his work could be fully realized. Turing's work on the Turing Machine was only one part of his many accomplishments. He also developed early computer programs, wrote the first paper on artificial intelligence, and designed the world's first electronic voting machine. Despite his accomplishments, Turing remains largely forgotten today. His story is told in this documentary and provides an interesting look at the history of computing.
  • 00:50:00 Alan Turing, a British mathematician and computer scientist, is best known for his work on the code-breaking Enigma machine during World War II. In 2013, Queen Elizabeth II granted Turing an official pardon, which raised speculation about whether he committed suicide by eating a poisoned apple. However, there is no conclusive evidence to support this claim and it remains a mystery.
