Beyond serious games and beyond gamification, at the intersection of AI and PLAY, applications are being built to truly change people's behaviors, their mindsets, their way of thinking. Never before have AI services and agents that mine data about users been more easily accessible. These services and agents can be woven into applications that can then curate highly customized motivating experiences for people. AI promises to create a vastly more productive and efficient economy and if properly harnessed can vastly improve our lives. But what is the future of AI and Play as it pertains to motivational design? Join Phaedra Boinodiris, an IBM Cognitive Designer and Serious Play Alum, as she walks you through her world of Empathetic Conversation bots that gauge emotion, smart drones and robots, personality-mining RPGs, and a whole host of other projects that will give you a new perspective on how this space is changing.
