WWII cryptologist, math genius Alan Turing chosen as the face of new English currency | Military Times

Alan Turing, the brilliant mathematician credited with deciphering Nazi Germany’s impenetrable Enigma code, has been chosen as the face of Britain’s new £50 note.

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney confirmed the selection Monday in an announcement at the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester, calling Turing “a giant on whose shoulders so many now stand.”

“As the father of computer science and artificial intelligence, as well as war hero, Alan Turing’s contributions were far ranging and pathbreaking,” Carney said.
