Alan Mathison Turing (23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954) was an English computer scientist, mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, and theoretical biologist.
ALGOL (short for "Algorithmic Language") is a family of imperative computer programming languages, originally developed in the mid-1950s, which greatly influenced many other languages and was the standard method for algorithm description used by the ACM in textbooks and academic sources for more than thirty years.
ALGOL 60 (short for Algorithmic Language 1960) is a member of the ALGOL family of computer programming languages.
The Automatic Computing Engine (ACE) was an early electronic stored-program computer designed by Alan Turing.
Charles Leonard Hamblin (1922 – 14 May 1985) was an Australian philosopher, logician, and computer pioneer, as well as a professor of philosophy at the New South Wales University of Technology (now the University of New South Wales) in Sydney.

Donald Watts Davies, CBE, FRS (7 June 1924 – 28 May 2000) was a Welsh computer scientist who was employed at the UK National Physical Laboratory (NPL).
Drum memory was a magnetic data storage device invented by Gustav Tauschek in 1932 in Austria.
The English Electric Company Limited was a British industrial manufacturer formed after the armistice of World War I at the end of 1918.
KDF9 was an early British computer designed and built by English Electric.
In computing, floating-point arithmetic is arithmetic using formulaic representation of real numbers as an approximation so as to support a trade-off between range and precision.
GEORGE is a programming language invented by Charles Leonard Hamblin in 1957.
This is a list of some binary codes that are (or have been) used to represent text as a sequence of binary digits "0" and "1".
Vacuum tube computers, now termed first generation computers, are programmable digital computers using vacuum tube logic circuitry.
The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is the national measurement standards laboratory for the United Kingdom, based at Bushy Park in Teddington, London, England.
The Pilot ACE (Automatic Computing Engine) was one of the first computers built in the United Kingdom at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in the early 1950s.
