Bank of America / Merrill Lynch 2016 Austin Technology Innovation Forum

Along with a number of other representatives of the video game industry (nice seeing you Todd Coleman and Gordon Walton), I had the chance to attend Bank of America’s most recent Austin Technology Innovation Forum yesterday at the W Hotel.  Great talks by a number of interesting panelists and speakers.

No surprise that security was a top consideration.   The variety of topics, risk vectors and potential fixes is staggering.

Lots of good discussion on how tech is transforming society; key areas: mobile, social, and big data – all considerations for game developers.  The “Internet of Things” is coming along fast – what kind of games can we make if everything is interconnected?  Interesting omission (at least at the macro level): VR.

Thank you Bank of America and Merrill Lynch for the great event!  Looking forward to 2017.
