Government plans £42m Alan Turing Institute to lead big data research

Good to see a British technology hero being honoured

The government has announced plans to fund a £42m Alan Turing Institute that will focus on big data and algorithm research as part of the 2014 budget announcement.

Chancellor George Osborne said the new centre was vital to help ensure the UK became a world leader in these areas of IT innovation, adding that it would be a fitting tribute to Turing to ensure his legacy was remembered in this way.
