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.

Device 6

- - i heart

From Simogo: A surreal thriller in which the written word is your map, as well as your narrator.

DEVICE 6 plays with the conventions of games and literature, entwines story with geography and blends puzzle and novella, to draw players into an intriguing mystery of technology and neuroscience.

Anna wakes up in a castle on a remote island, with little recollection of how she got there. All she remembers is an unusually unpleasant doll.

Why are there two identical castles on the island? Who is the mysterious man in the bowler hat? And above all, what is the purpose of the tests Anna is put through?

Read, listen and peek into three-dimensional photographs to solve the bizarre mysteries of DEVICE 6.
