Prof. Sgueo gives a TEDx talk about “Gamification”

Dr. Gianluca Sgueo, Adjunct Professor of Global Communication at Vesalius College, spoke at a TEDx event about Gamification.

In business, companies use gamification as a marketing tool to attract customers, while government and non-governmental organizations deploy it to connect citizens and public powers. A gamified government may facilitate and engage citizens in the policy-making process, yet it comes at significant costs: privacy-intrusion, social exclusion, or even social control. Dr. Sgueo talked about how gaming links with people in today’s society.
