Media Lab Virtual Visit is intended to open up the doors of the Media Lab to people from all around the world. The visit is hosted on the Unhangout platform, a new way of running large-scale unconferences on the web that was developed at the Media Lab.
It is an opportunity for students or potential collaborators to talk with current researchers at the Lab, learn about their work, and share ideas. It is a great way for prospective students and collaborators to figure out if their research interests correspond with the projects being developed here. For researchers at the Lab it is an opportunity to share their work with the outside world and learn how others are involved in similar fields.
