Upcoming Events
Frequent and varied events—such as lectures, colloquia, symposia, and workshops—play an active role in the continuing vitality and momentum of the Media Lab.
Jun 19 14 - May 29 15

The exhibit is located in our lobby at the corner of Ames and Amherst Streets in Kendall Square, Cambridge. The lobby is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9am to 6pm.

Muriel Cooper, Marvin Minsky, Seymour Papert: each of these three pioneers defied convention, rejected norms, and adored the impossible. Marvin taught us how uncommon common sense was. Seymour forced us to think about thinking. And Muriel showed us that the medium was not the message. Without them, the Media Lab would never be what it became.

Cooper Hewitt Museum, New York

Imagine handling objects virtually and physically in real time, from thousands of miles away. The Tangible Media Group, led by MIT Media Lab’s Hiroshi Ishii, is working on such a user interaction, transforming how we may communicate and work in the future. One current project is inFORM, a dynamic-shape display that gives physical form to digital information: physical “pixels” on a table surface move in real time, in accordance with data from a motion-sensing input device.

Host/Chair:
Camera Culture

Ioannis Gkioulekas presents a computational imaging system, inspired by the optical coherence tomography (OCT) framework, that uses interferometry to produce decompositions of light transport in small scenes or volumes. The system decomposes transport according to various attributes of the paths that photons travel through the scene, including where on the source the paths originate, their pathlengths from source to camera through the scene, their wavelength, and their polarization.
