I’ll be talking about Artificial Life + Augmented Reality at Digital Hollywood 2015

hollywoodThe Fall 2015 Digital Hollywood Conference is being held October 19th – 22nd at the Ritz Carlton in Marina del Rey, California.  It’s a fascinating event that explores the intersection between immersive entertainment and all kinds of emerging technologies.

I’ll be attending the first two days of the conference (Mon Oct 19 + Tues Oct 20) as part of my role as Lead Technology Evangelist with Wiggle Planet.  If you’re in the neighborhood and would like to meet up, please drop me a line at john.e.lester@gmail.com or @Pathfinder.

The Wiggle Planet team is developing emotionally-intelligent animated characters that live in the physical world through geolocation-based augmented reality.  These characters, called “Wiglets,” incorporate artificial intelligence, virtual physics and genetic inheritance, and are ideal for educational applications, games and staged augmented reality events.

Wiglets!

We’re excited to be spreading the word and networking at Digital Hollywood, and Jeffrey Ventrella (the founder of Wiggle Planet) will also be on a panel talking about real-time design of immersive entertainment.

Hope to see you there.

-John “Pathfinder” Lester
