Lecture and book signing with Sir Dermot Turing, the nephew of Alan Turing, for his new book, Alan Turing Decoded: A Biography.

Alan Turing was widely regarded as the father of computer science as well as one of the premier code-breakers of World War II.  The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, and based on Alan Turing’s life, won Best Adapted Screenplay at the 2015 Academy Awards.  Now, Sir Turing has written a new book to bring a new perspective on his uncle’s life, drawing on newly released secret documents, previously undiscovered letters, the family’s own archive, and interviews with Alan Turing’s friends and colleagues.  While at the Reagan Library, Sir Turing will discuss whether The Imitation Game is myth or reality.

Dermot Turing is  a graduate (MA) of Cambridge University, UK and (DPhil) of Oxford University, UK.  He is also a Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales.
