|Event Type:||MITX Event|
Join MITX for our first event of the year: a Fireside Chat with the new Director of the MIT Media Lab, Joi Ito. Moderated by Larry Weber (Co-Founder of MITX and Chairman of W2 Group), this one-on-one conversation will reveal Joi's, and the MIT Media Lab's, view on the convergence of social, design and mobility in creating impactful innovations.
While the Media Lab is already known for its multidisciplinary-based research, Joi’s expertise in connecting the dots and providing context and connections will take the Lab’s research to a level never seen before. If the past 25 years of the Media Lab’s research has resulted in such products as the e-ink that powers today’s tablet readers, the first powered ankle-foot prosthesis and the One Laptop Per Child computer, imagine the impact Joi’s leadership and vision will have on the next 25 years.
