“I have been fighting for years against the bias that wants video game technologies relegated only to entertainment. Video gaming is made for entertainment, but the science behind video gaming is made for humanity, industry, biology, skills, and for education.”

What we discuss with Luca De Dominicis

The video game industry has achieved enormous weight and significance in the global landscape. In 2020, helped by the worldwide pandemic and lockdown, it reached $159 billion in revenue. For your information, it is much more than what the film and sports industries combined earned.

Hence, in the interview, Luca De Dominicis and I discuss the perception of the gaming world in Italy and the giant strides made in this field. We discuss various technologies, such as photorealism, Ray Tracing, rendering, and many others.

As always, our guest gives three actionable insights to our listeners on preparing for future technological opportunities.
