|Professor of AI||IGGI Director||DC Labs Director|
I’m passionate about AI and Games - ever since I was 8 years old :). I believe game devs and university researchers have a lot to gain by working together - tech, ideas and recruits for the game devs, and relevant directions for the university researchers. I’ve been successful in bringing the UK games industry and UK universities much closer together - leading projects worth tens of millions of pounds to support over 100 researchers working with dozens of UK games companies in the IGGI (Intelligent Games and Game Intelligence) and DC labs (Digital Creativity Labs) programmes. The next generation of even more engaging and culturally important games might well come from such a collaboration.
