In June 23 2021 the Alan Turing £50 note entered circulation on what would have been the world-renowned codebreaker’s 109th birthday. Join Turing’s nephew and acclaimed author Dermot Turing (X,Y,Z and The Story of Computing) to celebrate his work. Dermot is joined by mathematic biologist Natasha Ellisson to reveal some of his lesser known but equally fascinating equations. Learn how we continue to use Turing’s work to explain the world around us, how it has been important in explaining how cancerous lumps are formed, how fingers grow and even how epidemics spread. Turing’s legacy continues to grow beyond Enigma.
