Alan Turing

Filed under: In Our Time, Philosophy — derryvickers @ 9:45 pm

Alan Turing was perhaps the UK’s most influential mathematician of the 20th century in both theory and practice – see

It’s not a pardon that should be given; its that the slate should be wiped clean.

It is ironic that Turing is to be featured on a postage stamp next year.

As the article in the Guardian points out he would not even have featured in the Press in today’s world.

I shall look out for the next epartition and sign it as I hope any readers of this blog will also.
