CDT Computerphile videos reach audience of half a million

Recently, some of our School of Computer Science-based Horizon CDT students have produced videos about their PhD research for the highly-subscribed Computerphile YouTube channel.

Computerphile, an online channel all about computers and related topics currently has almost 782,000 subscribers and has a 17.4k social media following via Twitter.

So far Mixed Reality Lab CDT students Dimitri Darzentas, Christopher Ellis, Horia Maior and Roma Patel have used this public engagement media mechanism to help to increase the global reach of the research they are carrying out at The University of Nottingham.

So far the seven videos, on the subjects of Blockchain, augmented reality, digital theatre and computerised brain scanning have notched up over 450,000 views collectively, with interactions increasing daily.

The CDT has set up a webpage to showcase these short films, and they can be viewed on the CDT’s Computerphile videos page.
