Lost Turing letters

Lost Turing letters

A unique collection of letters and correspondence from the late Alan Turing has been found in an old filing cabinet in a storeroom at The University of Manchester.

The file’s contents, which potentially haven’t seen the light of day for at least 30 years, date from early 1949 until Turing’s death in June 1954.

Altogether there are 148 documents, including a letter from GCHQ and a handwritten draft BBC radio programme about Artificial Intelligence (AI).
