Fluid Interfaces
  • Research Assistant

Pat Pataranutaporn is a technologist and a researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he explores the intersection of synthetic virtual humans and synthetic biology, specifically at the interface between biological and digital systems.  He is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Fluid Interfaces research group at MIT Media Lab, where he works with his collaborators at NASA, NTT DATA, IBM, and Harvard to examine the future of human-computer integration. 

His interdisciplinary research ranges from investigating AI-generated characters for learning and well-being human-AI co-reasoning,  wearable lab on the body with programmable bio-digital organ for space exploration, machine learning model to detect linguistic markers related to mental health issues,  and  mind-controlled 3D printer.

Pat's research has been published in Nature, IEEE, ACM CHI, ACM UIST, ACM SIGGRAPH, ACM ISWC, ACM Augmented Humans, Royal Society of Chemistry, etc. He also serves as reviewer and editor for  IEEE and ACM publications.  Pat's artistic projects had been exhibited… View full description
