Researchers at the Responsible Technology Institute, University of Oxford, have been researching the pervasive impact of algorithms on individuals, communities and societies. Working with our team, they created an explainer animation to reveal their findings and open up the conversation about the ethics of their use.
Although algorithms are already prevalent, there has so far been little transparency about their intended and unintended impacts, making this a particularly important science communication animation.
The decision to collaborate with Scriberia's animators was an easy one for Philip Inglesant, Research Associate at Department of Computer Science: "I've worked with Scriberia before, on a previous project about quantum computing, so I already knew how professional and easy to work with they are. But, what I enjoy best of all, is how their videos explain complex ideas in such imaginative, captivating and easy-to-understand ways.
And this project was no exception. “We’re so impressed," says Philip. "Making an animation could have been daunting, but Scriberia’s experienced and professional team made the process smooth and easy from start to finish. The end result took us beyond our imaginations and expectations and we can’t wait to put it to use.”
