“Alan Turing did revolutionary work in multiple fields, including mathematical logic, mathematics, cryptography, computer science, philosophy of computing, philosophy of mathematics, mathematical biology & artificial life, artificial intelligence, and cognitive science & philosophy of mind. The Turing Centre at ETH Zurich is a unique interdisciplinary research and teaching unit for Turing Studies. It fosters investigation of Turing’s groundbreaking ideas and the 21st century advances arising from them (including biological computing, quantum computing and encryption, and digital humanities). Like Turing himself, the Centre also engages in public debate about the impact of information technology on society. ETH’s leading researchers and dedication to blue-sky science provide an ideal environment for the Centre.”
