MIT Technology Review's Spotlight on Gaming

Spotlight On: Gaming explores lessons learned in this pandemic-fueled period and how they can be applied to the non-gaming world. We’ll explore gaming’s community building as well as the applications of gaming technology outside of the gaming world, in areas as widespread as microbiology and fashion.

Julie Shumaker, vice president of revenue at Unity Technologies, will share her views on gaming’s recent growth and the possibilities for community interaction. Brian Anthony, associate director of the MIT.nano lab, will discuss using gaming technology to visualize the immense amounts of data generated by nano materials research.
