Sample text

This table (and all succeeding tables of the same kind) is to be understood to mean that for a configuration described in the first two columns the operations in the third column are carried out successively, and the machine then goes over into the m-configuration described in the last column. When the second column is left blank, it is understood that the behaviour of the third and fourth columns applies for any symbol and for no symbol. The machine starts in the m-configuration b with a blank tape.

They mean ‘Turing police’, a fictional force bent on rooting out AI from the planet, but it does not matter, for me this line, read literally, contained the germ of an idea: What if Alan Turing were alive and turned up some place, unbidden? This strange fantasy lived inside me for a few years. Turing is not my only intellectual hero. In poetry, my hero is Constantine Cavafy, a Greek from Alexandria who died when Alan Turing was 21. He wrote some of the greatest poems of the twentieth century, a stunning opus sharply divided between subtle historical metaphor and rather unsubtle eroticism.
