This event will explore the deep historical and cultural links between games and technology, and specifically artificial intelligence. Featuring Kishonna L. Gray, Bo Ruberg, Julian Togelius, and Mona Sloane, the discussions will examine how games serve as a frontier of AI research, but also what – and whose – narratives shape “technological innovation” and “progress”, how this is connected to gaming cultures (or not), and how it is linked to wider structures of power and oppression.
