As the founding father of computer science and artificial intelligence, Alan Turing envisioned our digital world long before anyone else. But instead of receiving accolades, he faced terrible persecution. CODEBREAKER is a docudrama that chronicles his accomplishments, his tragic end, and his lasting legacy. Please join us for a free screening of this film. Producer Patrick Sammon will be on campus to host a Q&A session immediately following the film, and there will be refreshments served immediately after that.
