As 2012, Alan Turing Year draws to a close, further to earlier tributes in the year, Wiley pays a final tribute to the mathematician whose world-changing achievements were recognised too late. Statistics Views interviews Dr James Grime, Enigma Project Officer based at the University of Cambridge, who talks about touring schools with the Enigma machine for which he generously provided a demonstration, Turing’s contribution to statistics and how his own career started off thanks to Johnny Ball.
