James Wilkinson was educated at Cambridge and worked at the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, England, during World War II. He became Alan Turing’s assistant when Turing’s design for the Automatic Computing Engine was being implemented. When Turing left the NPL to join Manchester University, Wilkinson took over responsibility for the design and construction of the Pilot Ace. He is best known, however, for his work in numerical analysis.
