Computer pioneer Turing is famed for his work during the war at Bletchley Park where he cracked German codes in what was to be vital for allied1 success in the war. After his wartime work, he was pivotal in the development of early computers at the University of Manchester.
 
Bank of England governor Mark Carney said "Alan Turing was an outstanding mathematician2 whose work has had an enormous impact on how we live today."
 
"As the father of computer science and artificial intelligence, as well as war hero, Alan Turing's contributions were far ranging and path breaking. Turing is a giant on whose shoulders so many now stand," Carney said.
