Featured Article: Alan Turing
English mathematician, logician, cryptographer and one of the originators of modern computer science. In 1936, Turing developed the concept of “Turing machines,” theoretical devices that could mechanically perform mathematical computations by following a specific table of instructions. Turing machines formalized the concept of the algorithm and helped to determine the limits of computability in mathematical functions (Church–Turing thesis). The concept of a “universal Turing machine” which could incorporate the functions of numerous lesser Turing machines laid the groundwork for computer programming.

stereotypes and historical grievances. The rise of interreligious dialogue has been made possible by the twofold processes of unprecedented global interaction in the modern age and a dawning awareness and pragmatic realism of the need to overcome religious conflict.
