For 13 years Stéphanie Bouchard worked as a game designer in AAA, indie, academic research, R&D and freelance. She worked on all types of games, with all kinds of constraints, with or without budget. After 8 years as a generalist, she fell in love with creating fake homicidal people and decided to specialise in Artificial Intelligence. After all, someone needs to turn the world into Black Mirror.

Brittany wasn’t allowed video games growing up so she’s making up for it now. She loves building virtual systems and the teams that run them and made the jump to fake villains because let’s face it, it’s frustrating when real people don’t act as you expect them to. Her background in politics is unsettlingly fitting for this role. Outside of work, Brittany can usually be found coming up with new app ideas, debating current events over a beer, or commuting by bike in the winter.

When not building ML models, he can sometimes be seen playing heavy metal on baroque instruments or retrogaming on a Raspberry Pi.
