Computer - Computer - The Turing machine: Alan Turing, while a mathematics student at the University of Cambridge, was inspired by German mathematician David Hilbert’s formalist program, which sought to demonstrate that any mathematical problem can potentially be solved by an algorithm—that is, by a purely mechanical process.

Turing interpreted this to mean a computing machine and set out. Book Description This is the last untold story of BletchleyPark.

This is a history of Colossus, the world's first fully-functioning electronic digital computer. Colossus was used during the Second World War at the Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, where it played an invaluable role cracking enemy codes.

Until very recently, much about the Colossus machine was /5(3).Colossus was the name of a series of computers developed by British codebreakers in to help in the cryptanalysis of the Lorenz us used thermionic valves (vacuum tubes) and thyratrons to perform Boolean and counting operations.

Colossus is thus regarded [1] as the world's first programmable, electronic, digital computer, although it was programmed by plugs and switches.
