Game For Thought
Updated: Feb 17, 2021
Gam(e)(a)ble participates in an exciting event organized by the Digital Arts and Entertainment section from Howest!
On Thursday 18th February at 8PM, Rozane De Cock will be a member of the panel of professionals who will discuss the topic of "Games & Addiction" after a guest lecture by Matthias Dewilde from GameChangers.
The scientific, methodological and social questions around the concept of a "gaming addiction" are of utmost interest for Gam(e)(a)ble as addiction frameworks are also conveyed to describe phenomena at the intersection between gaming and gambling.
For the next session on Thursday 18th March (also 8PM), the collaboration continues as Bieke Zaman has been invited as a moderator for the stream on "Ethics, AI, and the Progress of Technology", which is linked with her overal research interests. Nonetheless, ethical and technological issues are at the center of Gam(e)(a)ble as well.
Game 4 Thought is a mixed format consisting of a guest lecture and a panel discussion mostly fed by questions asked by DAE students, but the general audience is welcome as well: The stream is available on Twitch and the questions from the chat will be answered by the guests. Previous sessions are archived on the project's YouTube platform
