The next Game Republic supported by Autodesk event, will be the GR Game Changers Lunch, on Thursday 14th September, 11am – 1pm at the University of York, Spring Lane Building in partnership with IGGI and kindly sponsored by Spirit AI.
This special lunchtime event features Andy Brammall from Spirit AI, who will deliver a talk, “There’s more to characters than polys – how Spirit AI is looking to breathe new life into NPCs”, plus we’ll also hear from Claire Bromley from Sony XDev Europe and Dr Jo Twist from national games body Ukie and Professor Peter Cowling from the research and innovation in games group at IGGI.
Game Republic members will also get free access to the IGGI Conference on research and innovation in games, with the first day of talks immediately following lunch. It features high profile speakers such as Mary Flanagan from Tilt factor as well as the research of more than 40 IGGI PhD students working with the games industry. The conference runs from 1.30pm on Thursday, concluding with drinks and networking at 5.30pm, and from 9am until 5pm Friday. The full IGGI Conference schedule is here.
