SF – Gaming Our Way to a Better Future

Date/Time: September 22, 2016

Speaker: Jane McGonigal, Director of Games Research & Development, Institute for the Future

At the fourth What’s Now gathering at Capgemini’s Applied Innovation Exchange, Jane McGonigal, world-renowned game designer and bestselling author, shared the latest in her ground-breaking body of work. Jane believes that Pokemon Go has created super-empowered hopeful individuals around physical activity and social interaction. She outlined the neurological research about the benefits of play, and discussed the success of Pokemon Go. Jane’s most recent project involves incorporating gaming into political action through a new form of social canvassing. This game, which launches October 10th, explores whether the same neuroscience that turns Pokemon Go players into super-empowered hopeful individuals can be replicated to draw out these traits in order to increase political engagement.
