Computerphile is a highly active YouTube channel all about computers and compute-based stuff, which currently has almost 880,000 subscribers and circa £20k followers on Twitter.
This channel provides an excellent public engagement vehicle for our CDT students to make short films to talk about their research to a relevant wider audience. Since 2016, CDT students from the 2012 and 2013 cohorts have produced Computerphile films on a variety of digital research areas including Blockchain and Bitcoin, 3D scanning of wargame miniatures, digital theatre props, brain-scanning computers and brain controlled movies.
