For many, Alan Turing's story is an inspiration, but given the numerous biographies in circulation what more can we learn about the man? 'Reflections of Alan Turing' explores many topics typically connected to his work - including artificial intelligence, code-breaking and security - debunking common myths and misconceptions along the way. Beyond this it also considers questions raised by different episodes in Turing's life and background which have resonance in relation to wider themes today, including women in science, criminalisation of sexuality and iconography. Having grown up in the shadow of his uncle's reputation and with access to family papers, Dermot Turing is perfectly positioned to give a new perspective and answer for the first time in writing the questions that arise time and again from audiences at the talks and lectures he gives about his famous relative.
