Interactive Google Doodle of 2012  

Alan Turing’s 100th Birthday
Computer genius Alan Mathison Turing was honoured with Google doodle on his 100th birth anniversary. Turing, who was born on 23 June 1912, is also being honoured with an award named after him in Manchester for people who help victims of homophobia.

The honour will be given as part of the Lesbian and Gay Foundation’s annual Homo Heroes Awards.

Turing, who is widely known as the father of computer science and artificial intelligence, committed suicide in 1954, just over two weeks before his 42nd birthday, following his homosexuality resulted in a criminal prosecution in 1952, since homosexual acts were still illegal in the United Kingdom at that time.
