Alan Turing is the man credited with coming up with a method for cracking the enigma, a German coding device, that was seen as unbreakable. He is widely seen as the father of computer science and artificial intelligence and is credited with helping to shorten the course of the war.

Alan Mathison Turing,1912–1954. Eng mathematician,logician,cryptanalyst & computer scientist.He is widely considered to be the father of computer science & AI.His homosexuality resulted in a criminal prosecution in 1952. Accepting chemical castration as an alternative to prison.Alan died in 1954, just before turning 42, from cyanide poisoning.Brit PM Gordon Brown made an official public apology on behalf of the British government in 2009,for the way Turing was treated after the war.

Father of computer science and artificial intelligence, Alan Turing is also considered a gay martyr: committed suicide in 1954 because he could not cope with the publicity following his conviction for homosexuality and subsequent “corrective” chemical castration in spite of the great service to his country —and the whole world— breaking German ciphers during the war.
