How was it done? Breaking the Enigma cipher - maths, not magic with Dermot Turing.

The Enigma machine cipher was famously broken at Bletchley Park, but for many years GCHQ did not want anyone to know how it was actually done. Beginning with the Enigma machine itself, and its illusory security features, this presentation travels across the different attacks on Enigma from the earliest pre-war attempts to the later sophisticated machine decryption methods. These attacks drew on group theory and the post-Hilbert ideas of incomplete logical systems as well as more traditional cryptanalytical approaches based on language structure. Once the theory was established, creating a fast, workable system for finding Enigma keys required an engineering solution, using binary logic to eliminate wrong settings – a radically new approach leading to the ascendancy of digital computing. Dermot Turing is the acclaimed author of Prof, a biography of his famous uncle, The Story of Computing, and most recently X, Y and Z – the real story of how Enigma was broken.. Full details

From Enigma to the Programming of Life

This public lecture, which is hosted by the EPSRC Hub for Quantitative Modelling in Healthcare, is intended to provide a platform for people to separate truth from fiction in the story of Alan Turing’s scientific accomplishments. Guest speaker, Sir Dermot Turing will be joined by Dr Kyle Wedgwood (lecturer in the Living Systems Institute) to discuss and explore the scientific achievements of Alan Turing across his career. Starting from the efforts to “break” the Enigma machine, Dermot will decipher the real story of Alan Turing’s work. Over the course of the evening, Dermot and Kyle will reflect on the impact of Alan Turing’s early machines on the development of modern computers, and later, on his contribution to answering fundamental questions about life and the natural world.

EPSRC Hub for Quantitative Modelling in Healthcare away day

The Hub for Quantitative Modelling in Healthcare will be hosting an away day on Friday 25th March at Ocean, Exmouth ( The day will involve talks from two invited speakers (Dr Remy Chait and Prof Tim Dodwell) and micro-talks from Hub affiliated researchers, introducing either a research problem or interesting technique. The aim of the day is to facilitate relaxed group discussions and learn more about each other’s work, with the possibility of some bowling in the evening! If you wish to join us, or would like more information, please contact Peter Ashwin( Full details

AMR genomics datathon : 14-16th February 2022

On the 14-16th February 2022, the Hub for Quantitative Modelling in Healthcare will be hosting a genomics datathon event in Exeter city centre. This event will bring together researchers from around the South West to collaborate on a serious antimicrobial resistance threat, focusing on the ECDC’s “European survey of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae” (EuSCAPE) dataset. The central aims of the event will be to develop new insight and methodologies around carbapenem-resistant pathogens - this could involve developing/extending bioinformatic tools, identifying interesting features in genomic data, exploring epidemiological data and so on. Register your interest for the event by following this link by the 24th January: Contact Emily Wood for further information ( Full details

Quantitative Health Network presents Translational Research Exchange @ Exeter, Hub for Quantitative Modelling in Healthcare & Institute of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence network event

Please join us to engage, make connections, create ideas for new projects and ask challenging questions. The event will feature interactive discussion sessions to enable participants to explore areas/research questions of mutual interest. We have a range of funding mechanisms e.g. clinical secondments and seed corn funding to support collaborative projects and ideas on the interface between quantitative modelling, biomedical and health research challenges. The overall aim of the event is to make new connections between clinicians and quantitative skills researchers , whilst giving participants information on available funding support from TREE, HQMH and IDSAI.
