Exploring technology and games in the era of digitised thinking

The London Games Festival: Artificial Intelligence Summit will explore the various ways artificial intelligence is shaping games – and the ways game-driven AI tech is shaping the world outside of games.
Topics up for discussion include a look at how AI tools could be used to filter out and curtail online harassment, the games potential in hybrid AI/voice-controlled platforms like Amazon Alexa, and how games studios are revamping themselves for an automated world.
Our closing keynote is a special session featuring a live interrogation of an AI, in a unique tech demo and showcase.
