Alan Turing was a mathematician, logician, computer scientist, and philosopher cryptographer , He was born on June 23 , 1912 in London, England in the United Kingdom He studied at King’s College, Cambridge, Princeton University of Cambridge,He provided an influential formalization of the concepts of algorithm and computation ,

The Turing machine. He formulated played an important role in the creation of the modern-day computer, Turing machine is a device that manipulates symbols on a strip of tape according to a table of rules. Despite its simplicity, a Turing machine can be adapted to simulate the logic of any computer algorithm, and is particularly useful in explaining the functions of a CPU inside a computer.According to wikipedia

According to wikipedia During World War II, he worked to decipher Nazi codes, he was the director of the Naval Enigma section of Bletchley Park. After the war he designed one of the first programmable electronic digital computers in the National Physical Laboratory in the UK and after built his first machines at the University of Manchester Called the Manchester Computer

Turing was admitted he was in a relationship with another man. he was prosecuted for being gay in March 1952 because homosexual acts were still illegal in the United Kingdom at that time and was given a choice of chemical castration or go to prison to avoid prison choose chemical castration so he suffered significant physical consequences including impotence, Two years after the trial, in 1954 Turing's ended his life in tragically way by committed suicide two weeks before his 42nd birthday.
