S258: Video games in research in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 20, 2019)
Many modern video games have sensors and feedback devices to enhance play. Researchers have begun to use sensors and feedback in the closed-loop adaptive system of the video game in various ways to create interventions and assessments. The class will end with a demonstration of a few games we use for our own research at UCSD.
