MIT Media Lab Southeast Asia Forum co-hosted by KBTG and Bangkok Bank
This year, the MIT Media Lab, the institution’s interdisciplinary research lab, is bringing the latest research and insights to Bangkok at the “MIT Media Lab Southeast Asia Forum” from 19 – 21 December 2022. This 3-day event will be co-hosted by KBTG and Bangkok Bank in collaboration with True and the MIT Alumni Association.
With its mission to create a space to share transformative technologies, state-of-the-art research, and the use of emerging technologies to invent a better and more just future, the event will focus on co-creating new possibilities in Southeast Asia. The knowledge-packed event will offer deep and immersive learning opportunities to inspire new generations of forward thinkers, open innovations, and spark creative thinking amongst people under the theme “Beyond the Elephant in the Room”.
Addressing ‘the Elephant’, or humanity's greatest challenges that are often ignored, the event will focus on contemporary technology and the envisioned future that can bring about emerging technologies like Extended Intelligence (AI), Hybrid Realities (Xverse), Augmented Creativity, Cyborg Health, Smart Materials, Digital Currency, Space Exploration, and Sustainability.
A dozen leading experts from the MIT Media Lab, including its students and alumni, will join the event to cover several key topics.

MIT Media Lab
Founded in 1985, the MIT Media Lab is one of the world’s leading research and academic organizations. Unconstrained by traditional disciplines, Media Lab designers, engineers, artists, and scientists strive to create technologies and experiences that enable people to understand and transform their lives, communities, and environments.
The MIT Media Lab promotes an interdisciplinary research culture that brings together diverse areas of interest and inquiry. Unique among other laboratories at MIT, the Media Lab comprises both a broad research agenda and a graduate degree program in Media Arts and Sciences. Faculty, students, and researchers work together on hundreds of projects across disciplines as diverse as social robotics, physical and cognitive prostheses, new models and tools for learning, community bioengineering, and models for sustainable cities. Art, science, design, and technology build and play off one another in an environment designed for collaboration and inspiration. The Lab and MAS program originated in and report to MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P) with which they share an emphasis on design, hands-on learning, collaborative research, and critique and reflection.
Media Lab alumni and researchers go on to careers in research and academia; to become entrepreneurs; to bring their unique skills and insights to industry; or to become independent designers, artists, inventors, and consultants. Research and projects developed at the Media Lab frequently grow and evolve out of the Lab as spinoff companies, as exhibitions and performances, as tech transfer to member companies, and, perhaps most importantly, as the basis for continued research and exploration for others, both within Lab and all over the world.
