MIT Media Laboratory Research
The MIT Media Laboratory occupies a unique position in the rapidly evolving landscape of new media and information technologies. It was founded by MIT Professor Nicholas Negroponte and the late Jerome Wiesner (former science adviser to President John F. Kennedy and former president of MIT), who foresaw the coming convergence of computing, publishing, and broadcast, fueled by changes in the communications industry. As this convergence accelerated, it spurred interconnected developments in the unusual range of disciplines that the Laboratory brought together, including cognition, electronic music, graphic design, video, and holography, as well as work in computation and human-machine interfaces.

Nerve Center

What began in the late 1980's as a self-help initiative of young musicians and film makers seeking a means of cultural expression, has steadily evolved into a Multimedia and Arts Centre, which is one of the key dynamics fuelling the arts and digital media sectors in Northern Ireland today.  Technological innovation has been the driving force behind the development of popular culture - the boundaries between the artistic and technical spheres are collapsing, requiring a profound conceptual shift in the way we think about the arts. Since its inception, the Nerve Centre has pioneered the digital age's exciting convergence of art and technology through education, training and production. Through it's dedication to lifelong learning and economic development, The Nerve Centre has acted as a magnet for cultural, educational and commercial organisations who share a common vision for a progressive future.
