Join us at King's for a public day of talks about the future of the games industry, from scientists, sociologists, game designers, YouTube essayists, AI engineers and more! Learn from some of the most exciting people working in games today, and ask your own questions about how AI might change the future of how we play, make and watch games.

Millions of people, young and old, play games all around the UK every single day to relax, socialise and create, and the UK games industry is bigger than music, film or TV. As AI changes everything in the world around us, join us at King's to learn about how AI might also impact the world of games, and the amazing new opportunities, risks and complications that might bring with it.
