Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe ...
Albert Einstein

A computer would deserve to be called intelligent if it could deceive a human into believing that it was human ...
Alan Turing

Two things control men's nature, instinct and experience ...

A Tribute to Alan Turing

Alan Turing, татко на информатиката, математичар, филозоф, логичар, крипто-аналитичар, еден од најголемите умови на своето време.
Тјуринговата Машина, "компјутер" кој се појави многу пред "дигиталната ера".
Многу дела по кои ќе остане запаметен од новото време, осуден и понижен од неговото време.
