Alan Turing, subject of the Oscar-winning 2014 film The Imitation Game, was the brilliant mathematician solicited by the British government to help decipher messages sent by Germany's Enigma machines during World War II. The work of Turing and his colleagues at Hut 8 created what became known as the "bombe" which descrambled the German navy's messages and saved countless lives and millions in British goods and merchandise.

Lettres à Alan Turing

La gloire d’Alan Turing commence vers la fin du XXe siècle, bien longtemps après sa mort.Il aura donc fallu attendre l’informatisation du monde, la divulgation de ses activités de décryptage durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale et la levée des tabous sur l’homosexualité, pour que son génie mathématique déploie enfin toutes ses dimensions scientifiques, culturelles et personnelles.Ses recherches très variées, et notamment sa célèbre machine, sont loin d’avoir donné tous leurs fruits. Nous vivons en partie dans une sorte d’« espace de Turing » mal connu, que les lettres rassemblées ici explorent avec humour, savoir et affection.

Uno dei più grandi geni del Ventesimo secolo, durante la Seconda guerra mondiale mise le sue straordinarie capacità al servizio dell’Inghilterra, entrando a far parte di Bletchley Park, la località top secret della principale unità di crittoanalisi del Regno Unito, e contribuì in modo decisivo alla decifrazione di Enigma, la complessa macchina messa a punto dai tedeschi per criptare le proprie comunicazioni, ribaltando così le sorti del conflitto. Ma la sua fu anche una vita tormentata. Perseguitato per la sua omosessualità, fu condannato alla castrazione chimica. Umiliato, a soli 41 anni, si suicidò in circostanze misteriose morsicando una mela avvelenata con cianuro. Questo libro ha ispirato il film "The Imitation Game"
