Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Mitch and Tom as they walk through the life of Alan Turing, world renouned mathematician and father of digital computing. The boys start hot out of the gates this week as they discuss how you can generate true random numbers… using DNA. Tom explores the life of Alan Turing and how he was so influential in changing the world to what it has become today looking into cryptography, digital computing and of course the Turing Test. Mitch takes us into the world of cryptography breakin it down very easily so even us muggles can understand what a fascinating world there is that keeps us safe!
