Alan Turing Timeline

Alan Turing Timeline

On the 23rd of June 1912, computer science pioneer, mathematician and Enigma codebreaker Alan Turing was born in Maida Vale, London. Providing a formalization of concepts such as algorithm and computation, he had an undisputable influence in the development of theoretical computer science. His ingeniosity and intelligence also proved invaluable during the World War II while he worked for Britain’s codebreaking center, as he devised several techniques of breaking the German ciphers. It is estimated that his work, along with his colleagues’, has greatly contributed to shortening the war in Europe by more than two years and to saving over fourteen million lives.

To bring an homage to the one who is consider the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence, we have created the Alan Turing Timeline, which pinpoints some of his most notable life events, accomplishments and works.

Turing displayed signs of genius since an early age, beginning to study Einstein’s work by himself when he was only 16. The young Alan was so committed to his academic interests that, when the first day of his term at a boarding independent school in Dorset coincided with the 1926 General Strike in Britain, he simply rode his bicycle unaccompanied 97 kilometers, although he was 13.

In 1950, Turing published Computing Machinery and Intelligence, a complex seminal paper that addressed the notion of artificial intelligence and presented an experiment to establish a standardized test based on which a machine could be called “intelligent”. This test would later be known as the Turing test, and a reversed form of it (CAPTCHA test) is now widely used to determine whether the user is a human or a robot. Turing’s paper on computing machinery brought a significant and lasting contribution to the debate revolving around AI.

The Alan Turing chronology was designed with the help of Office Timeline, an easy-to-use add-in for PowerPoint that helps users build elegant timelines, project schedules, Gantt charts and other similar visuals with ease. The image is free to copy and share, and can be easily updated or restyled using the Plus edition of the tool.

Johnny Depp Timeline

Johnny Depp Timeline

Charismatic actor, musician and producer Johnny Depp turns 55 this Saturday. Considered as one of the world’s biggest movie stars, he was listed as the highest paid actor in the 2012 Guinness World Records and was inducted as a Disney Legend in 2015. Committed to the task of challenging himself as a performer, Mr. Depp has portrayed a variety of roles that have become iconic for his fans, such as Edward Scissorhands, Donnie Brasco, Raoul Duke, and Capt. Jack Sparrow.

To celebrate his upcoming birthday, we have created the Johnny Depp Timeline - a brief visual biography that highlights several important life events and a few of the most popular films in which he was cast.

Although his name is almost instantly associated with Hollywood and cinema, Mr. Depp is a gifted musician too. Presently performing in the supergroup Hollywood Vampires along with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, he proved his musical skills through collaborations with artists and bands such as Marilyn Manson and Oasis, or for movie soundtracks like Chocolat and Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

Depp’s love for music seems to have started long before he even considered acting. Dropping out of high school to pursue a career as a rock musician, he tried to resume school activity 2 weeks later, only to be told by the principal to follow his dreams. Heeding the advice, he soon started playing with a local band and expanded his circle of influence.

It was through his first wife, the sister of his band’s bass player, that Johnny Depp met actor Nicolas Cage who advised him to go into acting.

The Johnny Depp chronology was built with Office Timeline, an intuitive and user-friendly add-in for PowerPoint that helps you easily create, edit and update timelines, Gantt charts, schedules, and other similar visuals.

Marilyn Monroe Timeline

Marilyn Monroe Timeline

On the 1st of June, 2018, American actress, singer and model Marilyn Monroe would have turned 92. One of the biggest sex symbols of the 1950s and best known for her comic blonde bombshell roles, Ms. Monroe managed to build a legacy that persists even to this day, more than half a century after her death.

To celebrate the birthday of one of the emblematic pop culture icons of the 20th century, we have created the Marilyn Monroe Timeline, which highlights some of the most notable events and achievements of her all-too-brief life and career.

Born as Norma Jeane Mortenson, she overcame an unfortunate childhood and worked in a radioplane factory until she was discovered by a photographer and began a fruitful pin-up modelling career. Soon afterwards, at the age of 20, she signed her first movie contract and adopted the stage name and signature look that would later establish her among Hollywood’s most popular celebrities.

Her earliest roles garnered the large public’s attention and contributed to her winning the status of sex symbol and top-billed actress of that time. However, they also diminished her acting scope as they focused on her sex appeal and insisted on the image of the “bubbly blonde”. Tired of being typecast and underpaid by the film studio to the profit of which she was bringing significant contribution, she left Hollywood for New York to study acting and found her own film production company.

Initially considered as lacking star acting material, Marilyn Monroe would return to the screen and prove her skills by winning two Golden Globes for Best Actress and various honors at European cinema award ceremonies. Monroe’s battle for control over her career was ridiculed in the press at first, but eventually yielded a successful outcome, with her contract being renegotiated and more favorable terms granted. Thus, she became more in charge of what movie projects to get involved in, which enabled her to display a richer range of acting skills.

Striving to improve her performance, the actress is said to have been a perfectionist on the set, a feature that made many of the co-stars label her as difficult to work with. Magnetic on the screen, controversial in personal life, Marilyn Monroe has been imitated by several celebrities over the years and continues to be admired for her beauty and persona.

The Marilyn Monroe chronology was built with Office Timeline, a simple to use yet efficient PowerPoint plugin that helps you generate impressive project schedules, timelines and other similar visuals with only a few clicks. The image is free to copy and share and can be edited or restyled using the Plus edition of the tool.

Jamie Oliver Timeline

Jamie Oliver Timeline

This Sunday, British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver turns 43. His rise to fame came at the age of 22, when he was noticed by the BBC after an unscripted appearance in a documentary about The River Café, where he was working as a sous chef. Shortly afterwards, he debuted as the host of the cooking show The Naked Chef, which ran for three seasons and three Christmas specials. His Mockney dialect, relaxed style and simplified approach to gourmet recipes won the viewers’ hearts and inspired more men to cook. After his break into television, the Clavering-born talent became an international phenomenon, starring into subsequent TV series, authoring several cookbooks and inaugurating multiple popular restaurant chains.

To celebrate Mr. Oliver’s 43rd birthday, we have created the Jamie Oliver Timeline, which illustrates important events, ventures and achievements in his life.

In addition to presenting successful TV cooking programs and launching his own line of cookware and restaurants, Jamie Oliver has also championed healthier eating habits for pupils in the UK. The show “Jamie’s School Dinners”, which documented his efforts to train a group of school cafeteria employees to prepare new and healthier dishes for students, helped him launch the campaign “Feed Me Better”. It advocated the improvement of the quality of food served in the UK’s schools and determined the British government to take measures in this respect, by increasing the amount spent on each school meal.

The Jamie Oliver chronology was designed using Office Timeline, an add-in for PowerPoint that helps you create professional timelines, Gantt charts and project visuals effortlessly. The tool is available in two versions, Free and Plus, with the former enabling you to build and edit simple graphics, and the latter coming with a higher degree of customization and extra features such as data import and update functions.

The Academy Awards Timeline

Academy Awards Timeline

The 16th of May, 1929, represents the date when the first edition of the Academy Awards took place. The event, also known as the Oscars, is held annually to recognize artistic and technical merits in the American cinema industry as assessed by the voting membership of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The ceremony, during which cinematic achievements from 24 categories are awarded, has served as a model for the Emmy Awards (its equivalent for television), the Tony Awards (theater) and the Grammy Awards (music).

To celebrate the world’s oldest entertainment awards ceremony, we have created the Academy Awards Timeline, which highlights a series of interesting facts from its history.

The inaugural edition of the Oscars was held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel with 270 people in the audience. Honoring participants in the film-making industry of the time for their works between 1927 and 1928, the first Academy Awards presentation ran for 15 minutes only. The winners received a gold-plated bronze statuette, now officially named Oscar, which was created by American sculptor George Stanley. For three years during World War II, because of a metal shortage, the statuettes were made of painted plaster. However, after the WWII was over, the Academy enabled the recipients to replace their plaster trophies with gold-plated metal ones.

Initially held within a private dinner function, the ceremony is now broadcast live in more than 200 countries.

The Academy Awards chronology was created with Office Timeline, an easy-to-use PowerPoint plugin that helps you quickly make elegant timelines, Gantt charts and other similar graphics. You can copy and share the image for free, and update and edit it using the Plus version of the tool.
