NEW YORK & OTTAWA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Award-winning mobile game developer, Magmic announced today that they have been invited to participate in Pocket Gamer Connects Toronto to discuss the recent integration of ChatGPT into its popular ‘Hasbro’s Scattergories’ mobile game. Pocket Gamer Connects is a leading mobile gaming industry conference with over 750 games industry professionals in attendance to network, discover, pitch and learn from 150 of the world's leading authorities. This latest update to the official Scattergories Mobile App, integrating OpenAI’s ChatGPT was announced in May 2023 with new insights and data recorded since the integration.
“We have over three months of new data with the new AI update in place. We will be sharing comparisons on our processes before and after AI, KPI data on the difference made with AI integration, issues we faced and adjusted within the integration, and potential future uses for the technology. Scattergories can now compare answers against a knowledge base beyond anything developers could create themselves and we are honored to share these important developments that affect the future of mobile gaming at Pocket Gamer Connects Toronto,” said Magmic CEO and president Mohammad Agha.
Scattergories has had nearly 4 million installs since its launch, making keeping the answer database up to date and complete the biggest hurdle for developers.
