Gartner’s 2013 Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies Maps Out Evolving Relationship Between Humans and Machines | Augmented Reality Games in Tourism | Scoop.it

The evolving relationship between humans and machines is the key theme of Gartner, Inc.’s “Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies, 2013.” Gartner has chosen to feature the relationship between humans and machines due to the increased hype around smart machines, cognitive computing and the Internet of Things.

This UK university lets students play Pokémon Go as part of their degree

This UK university lets students play Pokémon Go as part of their degree | Augmented Reality Games in Tourism | Scoop.it

Students at Salford University in the UK may soon have to capture Pokémon as part of their degree.

According to the Daily Mail, those studying the Business Information Technology course at an undergraduate level will have to play Pokémon Go.

How the app relates to the course isn’t immediately clear. However, Salford University lecturer Dr David Kreps says that it will make the course more accessible, and easier to grasp. Pokémon Go, he says, fits perfectly with that.

“It uses various information systems that are accessed over the internet, a digital camera and a GPS location sensor.”

Kreps also emphasized that while the course requires students to play Pokémon Go, it will get “a little more complicated” than just catching endless amounts of Rattata.

Serious Games - Foundations, Concepts and Practice | Ralf Dörner | Springer

Serious Games - Foundations, Concepts and Practice | Ralf Dörner | Springer | Augmented Reality Games in Tourism | Scoop.it

This textbook provides an introduction to the fundamentals of serious games, which differ considerably from computer games that are meant for pure entertainment. 


Undergraduate and graduate students from various disciplines who want to learn about serious games are one target group of this book. Prospective developers of serious games are another, as they can use the book for self-study in order to learn about the distinctive features of serious game design and development. And ultimately, the book also addresses prospective users of serious game technologies by providing them with a solid basis for judging the advantages and limitations of serious games in different application areas such as game-based learning, training and simulation or games for health.
