Featured Session: Storyworlds, Hour Blue & Amplifying Humanity Ethically with AI

Mar 11, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

A Storyworld is a conceptual immersive digital vessel for art and culture with a richness that passes the “Kyoto Test.” This is not a virtual world designed around game loops, but one that approaches the depth, messiness and non-linear richness of our world.
Can Computing Intelligence help create such a rich environment? It can, if architected correctly. Join some of the field’s most visionary minds to hear more. Magic Leap’s founder Rony Abovitz, filmmaker/VR expert Jessica Brillhart, futurist Jared Ficklin, and WETA founder and Academy Award winner Sir Richard Taylor to reveal what the Kyoto test is, the Hour Blue Storyworld and an AI system that fulfills not just a backstory, but a mythopoeia.
