@Phrenomythic  I first heard of Turing in respect to reaction-diffusion models. When I later learned about the computing stuff, I wondered if it was the same Alan.

In a new paper with echoes of Alan Turing, computer scientists have established a new boundary on computationally verifiable knowledge. The work has unleashed a cascade of consequences.

TIL that Alan Turing once bought 150lbs of silver, but didn't trust banks so he buried it in the woods instead. After the price of silver had almost doubled, he went to dig it up, but could no longer find it. via @reddit 

#OnThisDay in 1944, Colossus, the world’s 1st digital programmable computer was used for the 1st time. Informed by the work of Alan Turing, the computer was designed by Tommy Flowers & made by the Government Code & Ciphers School at Bletchley Park. 📸SSPL

Alan Turing, World War Two codebreaker and mathematician, will be the face of new Bank of England £50 note

Alan Turing, the computing pioneer who became one of the most influential code breakers of World War II, has been chosen by the Bank of England to be the new face of its 50-pound note

Whose face should go on the £50 note? Please support Alan Turing. He arguably did more to win the war than any other individual. Yet, far from honouring him, the legal authorities of his country hounded him to his death because of his homosexuality.

Brilliant news from the Bank of England: War-time code breaker,Alan Turing is the face on the £50 note (not that you or I will ever see one!), Has ever a man been be more celebrated in death..how tragic that he suffered at the hands of bigots in life.

And... Alan Turing has been voted the greatest and most influential figure of the 20th Century! ? #Icons

Happy birthday to genius Alan Turing, who played a pivotal role in helping the Allies win in World War II, and who was treated awfully by the UK government during his brief time on this earth.
