Relaunched in 2022, the society has quickly built up a reputation for having exciting events from hosting TechSummit - the UK’s biggest student entrepreneur career fair, to running multiple hackathons (e.g. HackKing’s, FirstYearHack) as well as providing weekly workshops and talks with industry. What’s more, all of our events are free.
Each week sees one of our specialism heads (representing AI, Blockchain, Cloud, Cybersecurity, Data Science, Engineering, Media, Gaming, FinTech, HealthTech, and more) take over the society to promote their area of tech through events and media.
The society has quickly become the go to place for connecting with students interested in tech, with multiple opportunities shared through us each week, and now with the launch of our Opportunity Board, students know our website is the first place to look. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students from King's College London, coming from a range of backgrounds, passionate about all areas of technology from AI to IoT.
We connect students and industry, organise events and workshops to develop skills and expertise relevant to current tech trends.

Exploring the Dynamic Realm of Game Development Unique Aspects of Game Development: o Creative Fusion of Art and Technology: Game development blends artistic creativity with technical expertise, requiring a harmonious collaboration between artists, designers, and programmers. o Iterative Process: Game development often involves an iterative process, where developers continuously refine and improve the game based on testing and player feedback. o Interactive Storytelling: Unlike traditional media, games offer interactive storytelling, allowing players to shape the narrative and make choices that impact the game world. Hardships in Game Development: o Resource Intensity: Game development demands significant resources, including time, money, and skilled professionals, making it a challenging endeavor for independent developers. o Technical Challenges: Developers face complex technical challenges, such as optimizing performance, handling diverse hardware configurations, and ensuring a smooth gaming experience across different platforms. o Market Saturation: The gaming market is highly competitive, and standing out among the multitude of available games requires innovative ideas, marketing strategies, and sometimes a bit of luck. Big Players in the Game Development Industry: o Electronic Arts (EA): Known for franchises like FIFA, Madden NFL, and Battlefield, EA is a major player in the AAA gaming industry. o Activision Blizzard: Famous for games like Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, and Overwatch, Activision Blizzard is a powerhouse in both console and PC gaming. o Ubisoft: A French multinational game publisher, Ubisoft is recognized for franchises like Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, and Rainbow Six. Financial Aspects of the Gaming Industry: - The gaming industry surpasses the film and music industries in terms of revenue, with blockbuster games often rivalling Hollywood productions in budget and profit. - Microtransactions, downloadable content (DLC), and in-game purchases contribute significantly to revenue, evolving the traditional business model. Graphics Card Industry: - The gaming industry is closely tied to the graphics card industry, with companies like NVIDIA and AMD producing high-performance GPUs to meet the demands of modern games. - Advances in graphics card technology contribute to improved game visuals, virtual reality experiences, and support for high-refresh-rate monitors. Monitor Industry and Gaming: - High-refresh-rate monitors, such as 144Hz or 240Hz, enhance the gaming experience by providing smoother motion and reduced input lag. - The rise of ultra-wide and curved monitors offers immersive gaming environments, complementing the trend towards more cinematic and expansive game design.

The Smart Way To Learn: Using ChatGPT Welcome! In this blog, we'll explore five valuable ways ChatGPT can assist you in your education, ensuring a safe and effective learning experience: Tip 1: Understand Complex Concepts Struggling to grasp a difficult concept? ChatGPT can be your helpful tutor! If you need help with understanding complex concepts, simply ask ChatGPT to explain it in a more accessible way. However, always remember to cross-reference the explanations with reliable sources like lecture slides and textbooks to validate the accuracy of the information. Tip 2: Seek Practical Examples Sometimes, theoretical knowledge can feel abstract without real-world applications. When researching a topic, don't hesitate to ask ChatGPT for practical examples. These examples can bridge the gap between theory and practice, making the subject more relatable and understandable. Tip 3: Generate Additional Practice Questions Have you already done all the practice questions provided for a particular topic? Well, ChatGPT can help you by generating more similar questions based on the ones you already have. By tackling these additional questions, you can reinforce your understanding and improve your skills. You can then ask for the answer once you have completed the list of questions that ChatGPT has given you. Tip 4: Create Custom Mock Papers Preparing for an exam or test? You can use GPT-4 to your advantage! Provide the content you want to be tested on, and GPT-4 can generate a whole mock paper for you. This personalised practice can be an excellent way to assess your knowledge and identify areas that need further attention. Note: You will need to pay some money to use GPT-4, but if it feels like it’s worth it then by all means purchase it Tip 5: Collaborate on Learning Projects Education is often more engaging and effective when shared with others. ChatGPT can facilitate collaborative learning by helping you brainstorm ideas, refine projects, or even simulate discussions with virtual peers. With these 5 top tips you can make your learning experience a lot easier no matter what degree you do! Until next time :) Useful Links: ChatGPT: https://chat.openai.com/auth/login Write your own blog: https://www.kcltech.co.uk/addBlog.php
