Alan Turing Institute opens to promote data science

The UK government is creating a world-class research institute specialising in data science dedicated to British WW2 code-breaker Alan Turing. The Alan Turing Institute for Data Science will benefit from a £42 million government investment over 5 years. The Centre for Economics and Business Research estimates that the big data marketplace could benefit the UK economy by £216 billion and create 58,000 new jobs in the UK before 2017

'The Alan Turing Institute has marked its first few days of operations with the announcement of its new director. Jo Johnson, Minister for Universities and Science, said: “The Alan Turing Institute has set off on a speedy course to secure new lasting partnerships and bring together expertise from across the UK that will help secure our place as a world leader in areas like Big Data, computer science and advanced mathematics.” Alan Turing Institute up and running:

Less than two years before he died, famed computer scientist Alan Turing wrote a biochemistry paper. Called "The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis," Turing theorized about how cells change and develop. Now, 60 years later, a team of scientists says it's provided some new experimental evidence that Turing was right (mostly).

Alan Turing - built the Turing Machine in 1937, developed the Turing Test in 1950 to measure the intelligence of computers & of course, HE CRACKED THE ENIGMA CODE (well led the team anyway)
