The face of Britain’s new £50 note is this WWII codebreaker considered the father of computer science

The father of modern computing and A.I. will be the face of the U.K.’s new £50 note.

Bank of England Gov. Mark Carney revealed that WWII codebreaker and computer science pioneer Alan Turing will be featured on the new polymer note by the end of 2021. The currency will be the last in the Bank of England collection to switch from paper to polymer.

“Alan Turing was an outstanding mathematician whose work has had an enormous impact on how we live today,” Carney said while making the announcement at the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester on Monday.
