My lecture: From Turing's Test to Turing's Tango

On March 7 2012 I have held a lecture at the Dutch conference Turing's Legacy:

                            "From Turing's Test to Turing's Tango".

In the first part of the lecture I have told the story of Alan Turing's life and work. In the second part I have told briefly about my new book Turing's Tango.
