Video Games are often considered the bane of modern day existense. That they are nothing more than a means to dull the brain with no productive outcome.

Well, those who hold this opinion may be surprised to know that video games and gaming in general are drivers of great technological advancement in a variety of fields - from the computer graphics that display games, to artificial intelligence that run games & play as the "computer", to personal computing computational power that handles advanced graphics & AI on ever smaller form factors from desktops to laptops to tables and even to phones. There are even more subtle advances that most people don’t think about such as human-user interaction. We’ve come a long way from a keyboard & mouse.

Video games and the consoles on which they are played are big business. Popular video games commonly sell over a million copies. Recently, both Sony's PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One have been released, in time for the Christmas holiday buying season and with brisk sales forecasts. 

The Tech behind Gaming is a topic we need to discuss. And we’ll do that on Tuesday, December 3rd at 6pm EST. We’ll discuss the development of AI technology, the OS that support gaming, compare the new PlayStation 4 with the Xbox 1, and we’ll also discuss SteamOS and its role as a competitor to Microsoft as an operating system for gaming.
