Alan #Turing - Legacy for Computing and Humanity

Events are taking place to commemorate Turing's centenary all over the world, even in Brazil. The Universidade Federal Do Rio Grande Do Sol (UFRGS) has put on an excellent looking exhibition called Alan Turing - Legacy for Computing and Humanity, which includes a physical exhibition, lectures, videos, a video competition and a code-breaking competition.
   I visited UFRGS several years ago to teach part of an MSC course and had a great time. So if you are in the vicinity of southern Brazil why not check out this Turing exhibition - of course you can always visit it online.
