On the 100th anniversary of Turing's birth (1912-1954), Davis (emeritus, mathematics, New York University), known for his work on Hilbert's tenth problem and model of post Turing machines, pays homage to the achievements of this genius and six predecessors who contributed to today's universal (i.e., all-purpose) computers: Leibnitz, Boole
, Frege, Cantor, Hilbert, and Godel.
