Alan Turing's Wonderful Machine
A programmer's view of Alan Turing's ground breaking paper "On Computable Numbers with an Applications to the Entscheidungsproblem".
What you'll learn
'On Computable Numbers...' lays out the foundation of what today we call the theory of computation. Turing points out that there are sequences of zeros and ones that no computer can generate. He also cracked one of the outstanding problems in formal logic at the time, the Endtscheidungsproblem, or decision problem. This course from the point of view of programmer, not a mathematician.
