A Case for Intelligence

Posted: 11.09.09 in Blogging

Alan Turing has been given an apology from the Prime Minister following a petition on the 10 Downing Street website. As a mathematician and being interested in cryptanalysis I am fervently aware of his work and his part in cracking the Enigma machine.

The significance of his contribution to the war makes the way he was treated all the more sad and regretful. I hope his work and achievements will be more generally appreciated.
