Event Description

How is generative AI being used by creators and developers to synthesize new stories and games?

AI Week at Betaworks begins Monday, 11/28/22

Betaworks is hosting a week of events and discussions to explore the new creative frontiers opened up by generative AI. We’ve witnessed unprecedented developments in how artists and engineers are using generative AI to add creative agency to how we work and play. Over the course of 4 days we will be showcasing insights and projects from an exciting roster of builders and researchers.

About this Event:

Hilary Mason and Matt Brandwein (co-founders of Hidden Door, a social roleplaying powered by narrative AI) will chat with Jordan Crook (partner at Betaworks) about how generative AI is being used by creators and developers to synthesize new stories and games.

Then we’ll be prompt battling! It’s like a rap battle but with keyboards. 2 contestants from the audience will try and make the best image according to a task, and the crowd picks the winner!


SAFETY NOTE: Betaworks Studios requires all in-person visitors to be vaccinated, and therefore mask use at Betaworks Studios is optional. To attend this event you will be required to show proof of full vaccination to enter Betaworks Studios.‍ Safety is our priority – we are limiting attendance to all in-person events, seating will be distanced, and masks are encouraged but not required.

Two ways that you can show proof:

  1. Show us your official vaccine card (photo of card NOT accepted) with at least 2 weeks having passed since the date of the last required dose (1 dose for J&J/AstraZeneca, 2 for Pfizer/Moderna)
  2. Present your NY State Excelsior Pass with an active Vaccination pass



About the Organizers

"Betaworks is building a version of the Web that CEO John Borthwick and his team of builders want to live in -- spartan-designed media on top of apps on top of utilities that all disjointedly make the social Web a better place, leveraging one another to do it." - Erin Griffith, Pando Daily At first glance, betaworks seems to be a loose organization of people that do many things -- but in reality we are building products that when combined together form a strong network, and eventually a media company for this century. We believe we're better at what we do -- building and operating companies -- because of the open ecosystem of builders around us. We are currently working on companies like Giphy, Instapaper, Dots, Poncho, Digg, and more. Our investment portfolio includes big players like Tumblr, Twitter, and Kickstarter, as well as up-and-comers like RapGenius, Grand St., Branch and IFTTT. To us, seed investing means "first money in" -- so our typical investment size is $100,000-200,000. We usually invest as part of a syndicate of angels and early-stage VCs. Our requirements from an investment perspective are simple, though narrow. Investments must be early-stage, heavily tech-focused, and have a working (public or private) prototype. We are a powerpoint-free zone. If you'd like to build, test, or invest with us, you can join our OpenBeta community here:
