Alan Turing, the father of computer science and artificial intelligence who broke Adolf Hitler's Enigma code system in World War II will be featured on the Bank of England's new 50-pound note.
The new note will be printed on polymer and will bear a 1951 photo of Turing, the bank announced Monday.

It's expected to enter circulation by the end of 2021. It will include a quote from Turing: "This is only a foretaste of what is to come and only the shadow of what is going to be."
Turing was just 41 when he died from poisoning in 1954, a death that was deemed a suicide.
His story became more widely known after the release of the 2014 movie The Imitation Game.
"Alan Turing was an outstanding mathematician whose work has had an enormous impact on how we live today," the Bank of England's governor, Mark Carney, said in unveiling the new note.
"Alan Turing's contributions were far-ranging and pathbreaking. Turing is a giant on whose shoulders so many now stand."
