Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The mission of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century. We are also driven to bring knowledge to bear on the world’s great challenges.

The Institute is an independent, coeducational, privately endowed university, organized into five Schools (architecture and planning; engineering; humanities, arts, and social sciences; management; and science). It has some 1,000 faculty members, more than 11,000 undergraduate and graduate students, and more than 130,000 living alumni.

MIT engineers have created soft, 3-D-printed structures whose movements can be controlled with a wave of a magnet, much like marionettes without the strings. The new printing technique could be used to develop remotely controlled biomedical devices.

We present Norman, the world's first psychopath AI. 

Norman, an artificial intelligence project from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is born from the fact that the data that is used to teach a machine learning algorithm can significantly influence its behavior.

MIT researchers have developed technology that could be used to remotely trigger “smart pills” to deliver drugs.
A new algorithm developed by MIT researchers helps keep data fresh within simple wireless networks such as the sensor channels in your car.
MIT researchers have devised a new drug-delivering nanoparticle that could offer a better way to treat Glioblastoma multiforme, a type of brain tumor.
MIT researchers have built an ingestible sensor equipped with genetically engineered bacteria that can diagnose bleeding in the stomach or other gastrointestinal problems.
MIT chemists have devised a way to rapidly synthesize and screen millions of novel proteins that could be used as drugs against Ebola and other viruses.
New research with mice suggests that the healing process after breast cancer surgery may trigger dormant cancer cells and lead to a relapse within 12-18 months.
MIT researchers have developed a computer interface that can transcribe words that the user verbalizes internally but does not actually speak aloud.
MIT engineers have developed a kirigami-style adhesive film that can stick to deformable regions of the body, such as the knee and elbow and maintain its hold even after 100 bending cycles.
