The mission of MIT Technology Review is to make technology a greater force for good by bringing about better-informed, more conscious technology decisions through authoritative, influential, and trustworthy journalism.
Spotlight On: Gaming explores lessons learned in this pandemic-fueled period and how they can be applied to the non-gaming world. We’ll explore gaming’s community building as well as the emerging gaming interfaces in development and how they’ll change the way we interact with all forms of technology.
Julie Shumaker, vice president of revenue at Unity Technologies, will share her views on gaming’s recent growth and the possibilities for business-to-player interaction. Brian Anthony, director of the MIT Device Realization Lab, will discuss his work creating the next generation of gaming interfaces.
