On Tuesday, June 28th we’ll be exploring “The Art of AI.” The evening will examine the opportunities and challenges presented when machine learning and storytelling collide. This is a unique conversation with leading experts working in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Together we’ll explore the impact of AI on narrative and the role that it can play in building rich immersive storytelling experiences.

After the talk/group discussion we’ll shift our efforts to the design of the upcoming Sherlock Holmes & the Internet of Things event. This session will include a special exploration of the play space at the Film Society of Lincoln Center as we continue to design and prototype the connected crime scene that will be staged at the New York Film Festival later this fall.
