La Machine de Turing
Written by Benoit Solès
Directed by Ivica Buljan
Inspired by: Hugh Whitemore’s play Breaking the Code
Based on: Alan Turing: The Enigma by Andrew Hudges
The show is in Slovenian with English subtitles.
Records of Alan Mathison Turing, of his mathematical-ingenious brain, and of the historical facts that are formed around him are surprising, interesting, and full of theoretical speculation about the impact that research into athletically built genius has had and still has on the development of artificial intelligence. We can read about his research work, which was crucial to solving the Enigma (a German electric message encryption device used during World War II), about his scientific work at the University of Manchester, about his more than just friend Christopher Morcom, who died prematurely as a result of raw milk poisoning and about his tragic fate.
