ESRC Methods Festival

11 July 2014

On Wed 9 July, the IMGAME project was at the NCRM Research Methods Festival. We had a session devoted to Imitation Game research, which included:

  • a introduction to the Imitation Game method by Harry Collins
  • a live demonstration of the Imitation Game in which we completed two rounds of questions and were able to show completed completed transcripts and pass rates to the audience within 30 minutes of the demonstration game finishing
  • a overview of the qualitative analysis of transcripts by Jennifer Lyttleton-Smith and Andy Bartlett

We also had a good discussion at the end of the session, with many good questions asked and several ideas for new research projects and questions suggested. Many thanks to all who attended.
