10:15 Keynote: Chat Pets and Cheese Plates: The Missing Pieces of Our Online Social Gatherings
Kate Compton, Assistant Professor, Northwestern University
Abstract: Yes, we are still here on Zoom. But we are also here on Discord and Animal Crossing, in Twitter threads and in Gather.town and in Jackbox rooms across the world. Each of these virtual worlds has a different set of affordance that creates a new set of social moves. Let's discover the critical role that game AI can play in these spaces, why you need peripheral vision in a poster session, and why no party is complete without a cheese plate.
