Comcastrodors, please welcome April Arrglington and Jose Delgado from ARchimeral, a gaming startup in Atlanta. April and JD shared with us details about their upcoming project “The Age of Turing,” an alternate reality game that asks how the present would be different had computer science visionary Alan Turing thrived after WWII rather than facing the tragic end he experienced. Here we reflect on Turing’s life and accomplishments, ponder the potential of artificial intelligence, explore the challenges faced by the autistic, and debate the merits of science fiction. April and JD describe the remaining characters in the game and detail the dystopian universe that they created to serve as the backdrop for game play. Reflecting on the intersection of society and technology, we also discuss how the game seeks to make these structures known to the general public.
