Play Biometric Dungeons & Dragons

See first-hand how emerging technology can change the game playing experience of Dungeons & Dragons.

Join a live Dungeons & Dragons play session to experience first-hand how new technology can impact the game play experience.

Sharing the latest research by the University of Melbourne’s HCI Group on future directions for tabletop role-playing games, this event uses biometric facial scanning to generate game characters. Is it creepy when a human face defines a character’s abilities, or does the approach open up new possibilities?

Thursday’s game sessions will be streamed on Discord for people to watch from home. Attendees must be 18+ to participate in this event.

For more information on Biometric Dungeons & Dragons, consider trying a facial scan at the Meat Market Hub or joining the panel discussion with AI ethics experts.

Mon 26 April to Sat 1 May, 6.30pm 8.30pm
