Event description
Where game development meets creative industries. Come along for an after-work evening of discussion, networking and innovation!

About this Event

InGAME Insights are regular gatherings, aiming to bring the city’s world-class Creative Industries and Games Industries together in an informal, relaxed setting. This time, we will meet at the InGAME’s very own studios in the Vision Building (Unit 9). Come along for an inspiring evening with pizza and beer and learn more about the InGAME Voucher scheme and how you can benefit from them! The event is open to professionals from both creative and game industries, students, and anyone else who would like to learn more about the project and make new connections. 

InGAME Insights #1: AI for Writers

Each of the gatherings will focus on a particular topic presented by an industry professional, and the fascinating micro talk will no doubt spark many interesting discussions in the room.  There will plenty of time to talk about the topic, meet others, share what you are working on and find out more about the exciting opportunities coming up through the InGAME project. 

InGAME Insights will introduce you to the great minds you can access via the InGAME voucher scheme. The first one, Lynda Clark, is a Research Fellow for Narrative and Play and is interested in how writers can use AI in a creative way. As voice assistants and other automated services and systems become more ubiquitous, there are often press scare stories about robots coming to take our jobs. But what if they were our collaborators rather than our usurpers? Chatting with AIs can not only be an entertaining diversion in and of itself, these uncanny conversations can also provide creative inspiration for writers. Furthermore, harnessing the power of AI via specialist writing tools can lead to new forms of non-linear interactive fiction.
