About the book:

Prepare yourself for a wonderfully eclectic journey through the land of Turing, that ripe mathematical landscape fed by imagination and technology. The coach stops at all the must-see landmarks in computer science - monuments of theory, avenues of application, and other points of interest along the way. From artificial intelligence and simulation to computer vision and cryptography, the Turing Omnibus takes you on a fascinating excursion. You will be shown how certain computer codes are used to protect the integrity of photographs beamed to Earth from space probes hundreds of thousands of miles away, how computers generate and manipulate random numbers to simulate real-life situations, and dozens of other intriguing glimpses into the current state of the computer scientist's art.
