TURING: the Edinburgh international technology festival

Turing brings digital technology into the Edinburgh festivals, the world's largest arts and creative gathering, in a celebration of digital culture and creativity.

Named in honour of Alan Turing, the father of modern computing, the festival explores the ways in which technology is changing all aspects of culture, business and society — how we live, and how we work.

The Turing Festival was launched in 2011 by Dr. Jamie Coleman, founder of CodeBase, Scotland's largest startup hub. Previous speakers include Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, renowned author Neal Stephenson and Pirate Bay co-founder Peter Sunde, alongside founders and executives from some of the biggest companies in the digital economy.
