Every day we imagine, design, and build transformative technologies, experiences, and systems—enabling everyone to thrive.

For almost 40 years, the MIT Media Lab has been at the cutting-edge of interdisciplinary innovation, blending academic excellence with creative exploration. Our mission extends beyond inventing future technologies; we aim to ensure these innovations benefit society positively.

We collaborate with global organizations across industry, governments, foundations, and individual contributors to combine creativity and expertise, creating technologies that make a real difference. Our diverse team helps us solve big challenges and turn great ideas into reality. We're all about pushing the boundaries of what's possible, with a commitment to excellence, integrity, and inclusivity, aiming to create a world where technology lifts everyone.

This is the future the MIT Media Lab is striving to build.
