### Did Alan Turing invent the computer?

Englishman Alan Turing the "Father of modern computer
science" provided an influential formalisation of the concept of
the algorithm and computation with the Turing machine in 1936. Of
his role in the modern Computer, Time Magazine in
naming Turing one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th
century, states.."The fact remains that everyone who taps at a
keyboard, opening a spreadsheet or a word-processing program, is
working on an incarnation of a Turing machine".
