Re: Good old Alan T

They're going to keep bringing Alan Turing into anything vaguely tech-related aren't they? Everyone knows the man was a hero and a genius, so they assume their pet projects will get some reflected glory from Turing's work. Expect any number of PPE ministerial statements along the lines of:

Alan Turing would have loved automated car tracking.

Alan Turing understood the importance of technology in war so he would have worked on our new megadeath 7000 hunter-killer drone project.

Alan Turing's work made biometric ID cards possible.
