Pilot ACE computer components. Chassis and components of the Automatic Computing Engine (ACE) pilot model. This was a preliminary version of the full ACE design, which had been proposed by the British computer scientist and mathematician Alan Turing (1912-1954). The Pilot ACE was one of the first computers built in the UK, and was constructed at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK. It began operating in 1951, and was used until 1955. A commercial version, the DEUCE, was manufactured between 1955 and 1964.
