Kim Swift is Senior Director of Cloud Gaming at Xbox Game Studios Publishing. She is best known for her work on "Portal" with Valve. She has touched a lot of different technologies across the industry, having worked at Amazon, Twitch, E.A., Motive, and Google. 

Kim talks about her hopes and dreams for the future of cloud gaming and what it means for LiveOps; how players can ascribe meaning and lore to benign design elements; and how even the simplest of design intentions can have unforeseen consequences. Crystin and Kim also discuss machine learning algorithms and how they might be used to create even more interesting interactions for players like advanced matchmaking or tailored experiences.
