In 1936 Alan Turing, a British Mathematician, came up with an idea for an imaginary machine that could carry out all kinds of computations on numbers and symbols. He believed that if you could write down a set of rules describing your computation his machine could faithfully carry it out. Turing's Machine is the cornerstone of the modern theory of computation and computability even though it was invented nine years before the creation of the first electronic digital computer.
