re: A Short History of Artificial Intelligence VIEW POST


Very nice article.

I need to rectify this fragment about Alan Turing:

Alan Turing was born on 23th June 1912 in London. He is widely known, because the encrypted the code of the enigma, which were use from Nazi Germany to communicate.

I agree that he is one of creators of present Computer Science, but early Enigma cipher has been broken by Marian Rejewski. Alan Turing was strongly based on results made be Rejewski and their colleagues( Jerzy Rozycki, Henryk Zygalski).

About Enigma in Wikipedia

As a Pole I have to mention about this.

Once again great post.


Ahh, yes you you have right here. I did not know this. Thank you!


No problem. I'm aware that this isn't well known fact so I've added my comment.
