Emerging Technologies, Experiences, Ethic & Everything in Between

Game Development and Game Engine Technologies are no longer just being used for traditional screen-based games. New Emerging areas of Technologies like AR & XR, Advances in AI, Robots, Trackers & Sensors, are now all being used to create Immersive Experiences that exist both in the virtual world and physical world.

A term like the slightly clichéd Metaverse might be used when talking about all these. For example concerts are now happening virtually on platforms like Fortnight. Movies and Fashion Designers are using game platforms like Roblox to create branded experiences for their premieres. TV shows like The Mandalorian are currently using game engines like Unreal, to build new Virtual Production pipelines. And Theatre and Live Performances are using real-time volumetric capture to have actors and actresses control virtual beings in virtual spaces, getting to interact with audiences in real-time.

As we see these new experiences get built up. And at these points where we’re seeing more and more digital technology being used for traditional media and entertainment. It also brings up topics about ethics. Who will our identities be in these virtual worlds? Who will be owning the data? What boundaries will be set in place to not invade my personal space with an overload of digital?

In this workshop. We’ll explore some of the trends in the Emerging Tech space. Talk about some of the examples that inspire us. Areas we’d love to see more of. Areas of growth. While also considering the ethical design questions we should be asking ourselves and those around us, as this industry grows.

Recommend for designers creative technologists, developers.

Just a solid internet connection and your PC with a mic so you can join the conversation.

This workshop will be given via Zoom.

EUR €19.51 (Incl. EUR 1,82 Fee + EUR 2,69 VAT)
