Alan Turing

So I'm reading a paper by Alan Turing and in it he asks the questions, can machines think? 
So of course this got me thinking, can machines think? Do they have a expression of thought that we could examine. 

In some ways, they already do, but the logic they used is fixed and rarely makes errors like we would assume. 

The reason a computer (for the most part) accomplishes billions of tasks a second is because it is sending information at an incredible speed through a logic pattern that doesn't change. 

These logic patterns however evolve into more unique and specific patterns as computers develop. 

Turing was one of the several men who developed the Turing machine to break the enigma code during WW2. He also wrote a ton of very important mathematical documentation that is still used by code-breakers and mathematicians today. 

Check out some of Turing's work and analysis of numbers online and be informed :)
