Is Gamification an Art or Science or Both? The recentsad deathof JohnNash,the man behindthe film“BeautifulMind”whichstarredRussell Crowe bringsintofocusthe relationshipbetweenArtandScience.Nash’smostcelebratedworkwasbasedongame theory.He was able torepresentin mathematical formthe dynamicsof humanrivalrywhichisatthe heartof our humanity. However,if we analyse whatattributesdefine the world’sbestsportspersonalitiesingamessuchassoccer, snooker,cricket and golf we can considertheirskillsintermsof an abilitytotranslate physical andmathematical formulaeintoresults.A topsnooker playerusesangles,spinandmomentumineveryshot.Golf professionalshave toaccountforthe windandthe resistance and contoursof grass surfaces.Cricketplayersuse weatherconditionstoswingthe ball andtimingtoscore runs.All of these abilities couldbe regardedas interpretationsof scientificformulae andyetwe understandablysee the mastersof these gamesasartistsor wizardsable toconjure the impossible,heroeswhotranscendsporttoan extradimension. It isthe challengesandskillsof gameswhichengage humanbeingsasplayersorspectatorsandinfluenceourbehaviours, passions,perceptionsanddevelopmentinwayswhichfew otherhumanactivitiescan hope toachieve.Gamesare activitieswhich are enteredintovoluntarilyandbasedonintrinsicmotivation –the pleasure,enjoymentandemotionsgeneratedbyour involvement.Asthe rapidlydevelopingdisruptiveandubiquitoustechnologiesincreasinglygive usinstantaccesstoproductsand serviceswhichmeetourdailyneeds,sothe physical andmental challengesof life are dramaticallyreducing.We have fewerand fewerjobswhichrequire hardmanual effortand,inthe 21st century,there will be arapiddecline inthe numberof jobswhich require mental effort.Machinesandartificial intelligence are providingsuperiorandmore costeffectivesolutionstoactivitiesthat were once mankind’ssole domain. All thisposesthe questionof mankind’sfuture. Will machinesandartificial intelligencetriggeradecline inmankind’sphysical and mental capacityor will ourhumanityfindwaystoextendanddevelopourcapacityinwayswhichmachinesandcomputersmay nevertrulycompete.Ourphysical andmental superioritymayhave beenovertakenbytechnologybuthumanshave soulsand sensitivitiesbothphysical andemotionalthatare so far beyondthe domainof technology. Thisbringsus back to ask whetherGamification,whichreliesonknownandprovenfactorstoengage andinfluencehuman development,isascience oran art. Are those individualswhoare the mostsuccessful atshapingandinfluencingthe worldw e live inscientistsorartistsor are theyan indefinableamalgamof artand science? My ownviewis thatGamificationisamagical blendof science andart that few people are genuinelyblessedwith –those Games Masters of Societywho,intheirchosenfield,are like the sportinggeniuseswe admire andfollow,instinctivelyable toassess situationsimmediatelyandact witha mathematical precisionandcomplexitythatonlyhumanscanhope to reproduce.
