Professor Dominik Siemon and PhD Student/Screenwriter Essi Aittamaa from LUT University are working on a research project on design of intelligent digital characters representing companies in digital spaces. Their view of characters goes beyond mere technical functionality, they see characters as carefully designed constructs that combine technological functionality with chosen cultural and marketing messages - important for any organisation’s digital presence. Today Siemon and Aittamaa talk about their research project, characters in digital spaces and how characters could best represent companies online.

This webinar is presented mainly in English.

This webinar is for everybody interested in software development and digital spaces.

This webinar will tell you how to use and develop characters in the digital spaces and systems.

Webinar is free of charge for TIVIA members including the staff of partner and company members.
