Drawn to Scales

If She Could Turing Back Time

Mathematician Alan Turing, father of modern computing and the creator of the idea behind the Enigma Machine, is who Melanie would choose, if she could choose one person to have dinner with. She would ask him, 'How far did you see your computing machine going, and what do you think of how far it's come?'
