Susan Watts (BBC Newsnight, MRC Imperial College) talks to Steven Pinker (Harvard University) for Faculti.
Faculti’s aim is to communicate research in a way that is accessible to the wider public. The videos are professionally made and the participants present their ideas clearly in an unadorned, simple way, largely relying on direct, to camera communication, without any other audiovisual aids. A simple idea, well executed.

Faculti research videos are an invaluable resource for students and general members of the public exploring disciplines and issues. They are also important for researchers to share their ideas and thinking with broader audiences, and for universities to showcase their academic staff and research strengths.

Faculti is a values-driven organisation with a passion for teaching, learning and scholarship.
Media and technology has changed the way we access cutting-edge information and research. Faculti delivers the latest breakthroughs, research news and academic insight, communicated by the world’s leading industry and academic experts in short, accessible digital media. We started by covering the Higgs Boson at Kings College London in 2013 with the mission to publish authoritative cutting-edge information in an accessible way. We’re now a global digital platform viewed by millions of people a month, with offices in Boston and London.
Inspired by the confirmation of the Higgs Boson particle in 2013, Faculti contacted Professor John Ellis, Kings College London, about making a short film of the ground breaking news. Professor Ellis’ enthusiasm and support led to the first Faculti film. In 2015 we moved to a bespoke platform and today we host content from across the world’s leading institutions including The United Nations, the British Parliament, Harvard University, Stanford University, MIT, Caltech, New York University, Oxford University, Cambridge University and the University of the Arts London, and leading figures from Ambassadors and Diplomats, Noble Prize Winners, Poet Laureates, Oscar Award Nominees, Pulitzer Prize Winners and global thinkers.
The ambitions that drive us:
We focus on two interconnected ambitions:
Building an inclusive, accessible cutting-edge information platform.
Create more personalised learning and development experiences
