Alan Turing and His Contemporaries: Building the World's First Computers

Posted: Monday, 10 October 2011 11:10

A new book, co-authored by Dr Roger Johnson. One of the book's eight chapters is devoted to Andrew Booth's work at Birkbeck. The Amazon Product Description: "Secret wartime projects in code-breaking, radar and ballistics produced a wealth of ideas and technologies that kick-started the development of digital computers. This is the story of the people and projects that flourished in the post-war period. By 1955 computers had begun to appear in the market-place. The Information Age was dawning and Alan Turing and his contemporaries held centre stage. Their influence is still discernable deep down within today's hardware and software."
