On February 25th, VNG and TEDxDakao co-organised an inspiration event at VNG campus with the theme “Aspiration”, gathered several prestigious speakers in many fields.
In the event, Kelly Wong, Vice President of Game Entertainment at VNG, shared his multi-dimensional view on gaming and the potential of gaming industry in the development of technology transformation. Contrary to common prejudice, games can become a tool to promote positive behaviors and education. In addition, gaming is the catalyst for change, bringing technological innovation closer to other life areas. Innovations that were originally developed for games (i.e graphics, user interface, virtual reality, etc.) have now widely adopted in other areas such as education, architecture and medicine. Thereby, Kelly hoped that the audience will have a fairer thoughts on games.
