    Alan Turing is considered as the father of modern computer science. He was a well-known English mathematician. Alan Turing showed a passion to science from his childhood onwards. Alan Turing was born in London in the year 1912. He found out the Turing machine. He is the main founder of the concepts of computation as well as algorithm in the Turing machine. He in fact played a major role in the development of the modern computer. The computer is invented by Charles Babbage. Abacus is the earliest tool used for calculations. Abacus was thought to be invented by Babylonians.

    Hi there,
    Alan Turing, a pioneering 20th century mathematician, is widely considered to be the father of modern computer science.

    It was his idea of creating a machine to turn thought processes into numbers which was one of the key turning points in the history of electronic boxes and screens.
    Turing was born in London in 1912 into an upper-middle class family and displayed a fascination for science throughout childhood.
    you can go through wekipedia for detailed information about that.

    hi

    the father of Computer Science
    I'd go for Alan Turing http://www.seventhfam.com/university...ol/cslinks.htm
    but I've found references while looking up this one to someone I've never heard of called Donald E. Knuth, and to Marvin Minsky. Minsky is 'one of the founding fathers', while Knuth see4ms to be always in quotes, but Turing is not in quotes. This suggests a greater certainty for Turing. He's my choice anyway, before I looked things up. Career cut tragically short or who knows what else he would have achieved.Not only is Alan Turing the father of all modern computer science, he also was the single individual most responsible for breaking the Enigma code during World War II, and he laid the foundation for artificial intelligence by posing the Turing Test in 1950.


    good luck

    Re: Who is the father of Computer Science?

    Alan Mathison Turing is considered as the father of Computer science and Artificial Intelligence.
    Alan Turing was a Englishmen and was a Mathematician, Computer scientist ,cryptanalyst and a
    logican . He invented the concepts of Algorithms and Computation, the concepts on which todays
    computers are based.

    Alan turing actually worked for the British goverment during world war Two, where he played the
    most important role of breaking or decoding German or the Nazis ciphers. He would decode the ciphers
    by breaking the Enigma machine usin a technique called Turing Bombe.Thus he invented the major techniques
    in the field of cryptography and is known as the world most reowned cryptanalyst.

    After the world war two he worked for the National Physical Laboratory and created the first computer
    which was programme based and was known as Automatic Computing Engine (ACE).

    Among his other notable works was the invention of secure voice systems for communication with
    Bell Laboratories and proposal for Turing test that will set a standard for knowing the intelligence
    of a Computer system .

    Detail of father of Computer Science :- Alan Mathison Turing is the father of Computer Science and they are invented the Computer Science branch.They providing concept of "algorithms and Computation".They also design mechanism of Turing machine.

    Because of this turning mechanism the name of father of Computer Science will be changes to" Alan Turing".

    They explain algorithms on the basis of binary logic system and taken only two digit either 0 or 1 .

    Where, 0(zero)- True condition

    1(one) - False condition

    After invention of two concept they work upon another concept that is Automatic Computing Engine and on the basis of this engine they successful to develop new Computer System.This computing theory was successful and day by day many short form of Computer like Laptops and Notebook will be created.

    Alan Mathison Turing play major role for developing first computer.They have really Artificial Intelligence and try to develop more invention in the field of CRYPTOGRAPHY.

    In CRYPTOGRAPHY field they reowned with Officer of the Order of the British Empire and Fellow of the Royal Society .

    Hi friend,



    Well mine Friend, It's good to know that you are curious about a very basic Question.

    Well Father of Computer Science was : Alan Turing

    He was a was a British mathematician, and computer scientist.

    He was highly influential in the development of computer science, giving a formalisation of the concepts of "algorithm" and "computation" with the Turing machine.



    He created the ABC (Atanasoff-Berry Computer) that was the first electronic digital computer.

    That's why we call him Father of Compuetr science.

    He was born October 4, 1903 and died in the June 15, 1995 and in the mean time he got enough famous.

    Hope it helps!!

    My dear friend the Invention of Computer was a great one in the Modern Era.
    It changed everything.
    The way of thinking of People.
    The Way of Living of People.
    Almost everything was Changed.
    This great Invention was done by the Father of the Computer CHARLES BABBAGE .
    You can see his Picture Above.

    But he is not considered as the Father of Computer Science.
    The person who is considered as the father of Computer Science is ALAN TURING.


    Here is his Photograph:



    He was a British Mathematician and Scientist.
    After World War 2 he created a Design for a Stored Program Computer.
    He also worked in the World War 2 in Breaking the Ciphers.
    A Cipher is an encrypted code which is used to communicate specially during the wars.

    He was born on 23 June, 1912.
    He died on 7 June, 1954.

    dear friend,

    the first inventor of the computer science is considered the Alan Turing. he was a great man. he is called a the father of the computer science. he was a very good mathematician. he had a craze of the science in the childhood and was very good in the science subject. he was born in year 1912 at London.
    he has make many algorithm for the computer world. today the computer we are using are the gifts of his great invention.
    the first computer was invented by the charles bubbage.

    so best of luck

    Charles Babbage, a British Mathematics professor, is regarded as the Father of Computers.

    [COLOR="rgb(139, 0, 0)"]He was born in England in 1792 as the son of a rich banker from Devon.
    He was inspired by Napier's logarithm tables and Napier's logs and bones. He began to design a "difference engine" in 1821 which was a very large and complicated machine intended for doing logarithmic calculations automatically.[/COLOR]

    hai,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    dear Alan Turing,
    the mathematician,
    cryptanalyst,
    logician and computer scientist
    who was hounded by the British establishment for being gay, he was born exactly 100 years ago
    During the Second World War,
    Turing worked for the British Government’s Code and Cypher School (now GCHQ), at Bletchley Park – devised techniques to break German cipher codes.
    Despite Turing’s massive contribution to helping defeat Nazi Germany, the British establishment hounded him for being an openly homosexual man, leading to his criminal prosecution for what was still illegal in the UK at the time. As an alternative to going to prison, Turing accepted the barbaric treatment of chemical castration. Less than two years later, Turing was found dead from cyanide poisoning, less than two weeks before his forty-second birthday.
    An inquest into his death ruled that he’d committed suicide. However, at a conference in Oxford taking place today, Professor Jack Copeland will question the evidence that was presented at that inquest. According to the BBC, “Copeland believes the evidence would not today be accepted as sufficient to establish a suicide verdict argues Turing’s death may equally probably have been an accident”.
    so good luck
