Technoculture, Art and Games: MICROTALKS

The Technoculture, Art and Games cluster is hosting another session of MICROTALKS featuring new cluster members. Speakers will share their work in super fast pecha-kucha style presentations.

The speakers featured in this first session will talk about a wide variety of topics including, but not exclusive to: ethical game design, gender in games, procedural choreography, conversing with NPCs and narrative AIs. Join us and get up to date on the research TAG members have been conducting this year.
