Alan Mathison Turing (1912)

Turing was a groundbreaking English mathematician and logician who worked on artificial intelligence (AI), among other things. He created the Turing test to determine whether a computer is capable of humanlike thought. His papers on the subject are widely acknowledged as the foundation of research in AI. He also did valuable work in cryptography during WWII, helping to break the German Enigma code. In the midst of his pioneering work, Turing committed suicide after being convicted of what crime?

I think KSPavan would fail the Turing test.

Whenever we criticize the horrific treatment of gay people in Africa and the Middle East, let us remember the equally vicious treatment of gay people in Europe and the United States until the 1960s.

With the exception of a few decent countries such as the Netherlands, gay people were persecuted and prosecuted.

Even after World War II, gays who had been imprisoned by the Nazis were NOT released by the Allies.

Mr. Turing was the victim of sanctimonious hypocrisy, for gay relations were practiced by some members of the British Establishment that destroyed him.
