Abstract

This paper has a twofold aim. I wish to illustrate a new perspective of logic that Alan Turing discussed in public and private communications after the results he had obtained in the 1930s. In particular, I shall underline his controversial relationship with the strictly Hilbertian approach to mathematical logic. I shall also show an often forgotten vision of machine intelligence proposed by Turing himself in a Report on Intelligent Machinery written in 1948, where he was more explicit than usual about his experiments concerning machine intelligence, and described a stimulating idea about unorganized machines and their potential intelligent behaviours
