"Computer games constitute a risk for players' health and mental capacities." This view, frequently expressed and discussed in the media, is challenged by Rainer Malaka in his talk at TEDxOsnabrückUniversity. To the contrary, computer games can (and already do) contribute in many ways to a longer and healthier life, a development additionally supported through new game paradigms and novel forms of interaction with games and computers in general.
Rainer Malaka is Professor for Digital Media at Bremen University, where he leads the Digital Media Group and serves as director of the Center for Computing and Communication Technologies. Before his move to Bremen in April 2006, he headed the research department of the European Media Laboratory (EML).
The focus of Rainer Malaka’s work is intelligent mobile systems, but he and his group are also involved in research on entertainment computing, human computation, human-computer interaction, semantics and context, spatial media and computing, and visual computing.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
