Alan Turing on England's 50-pound note

"Alan Turing was an outstanding mathematician whose work has had an enormous impact on how we live today," said Bank of England governor Mark Carney ("New face of the Bank of England's £50 note is revealed as Alan Turing," by Kevin Peachey, BBC News, July 15, 2019). Alan Turing, "the father of computer science and artificial intelligence who broke Adolf Hitler's Enigma code system in World War II — but who died an outcast because of his homosexuality — will be featured on the Bank of England's new 50-pound note. The new note will be printed on polymer and will bear a 1951 photo of Turing, the bank announced Monday. It's expected to enter circulation by the end of 2021. It will include a quote from Turing: 'This is only a foretaste of what is to come and only the shadow of what is going to be'." ("Alan Turing, Computing Genius And WWII Hero, To Be On U.K.'s New 50-Pound Note," by Bill Chappell, National Public Radio, July 15, 2019). See also: "Alan Turing, World War II code-breaker castrated for being g**, is the face of Britain's £50 note," by Charles Riley, CNN Business, July 15, 2019; "Alan Turing to feature on new £50 banknote," by Larry Elliott, The Guardian, July 15, 2019; among other media including The New York Times, ABC, NBC, Fox and CBS News, PBS, Time, The Washington Post, The Telegraph, The Independent, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Financial Times, and Nature
