Game Changers: How Automation Has Changed the Gaming Industry
Mark Yoseloff, PhD - Univ. of Nevada, Las Vegas, NV
In the last 30 years, automation has changed the operation of casinos to a greater extent than in the 3,000 year history of the industry. Beginning with a quick overview of what constitutes innovation, two very important examples of the application of automation to the industry will be given. These two innovations alone account for multi-billion dollar increases in revenue. Finally, several of the latest trends in gaming innovation will be presented, with an open invitation to the audience to explore the application of automation in these areas.
