如果說未來有任何事情是可以確定的,那就是科技的影響,特別是數位科技的影響將會持續增加,改變我們表現自己的方式,改變我們彼此溝通的方式,以及我們感知、思考和與週遭世界互動的方式。這些「媒介科技」只不過開始了進化的第一個階段:他們依然簡陋、使用不便、沒有量身定做,不符合使用者的習慣。如何將它們的潛力完全發展出來?這就成了這個資訊時代最基本的技術和設計議題。

在麻省理工學院中,媒體藝術與科學專精於研究、發明和創意運用能增進人類與機械之間表達和理解的科技。這個領域奠基於現代通訊、電腦和人類科學,相關的學位課程和媒體實驗室中的研究計畫密切相關。電腦與運算是這個跨領域學門中最主要的角色。為了跟上相關知識的爆炸性發展,我們研發並培育了新的理論與實務並重的研究,它們也成為了這個新興學門的基礎。媒體藝術與科學最簡單的模式可以被描述成從技術面、認知面和審美觀來探究如何透過科技滿足人類的互動需求。以更前瞻的說法來說,這個領域所追求的是未來資訊豐富的環境中的生活品質。

If anything can be certain about the future, it is that the influence of technology, especially digital technology, will continue to grow and to profoundly change how we express ourselves, how we communicate with each other and how we perceive, think about and interact with our world. These "mediating technologies" are only in the first stages of their modern evolution; they are still crude, unwieldy, unpersonalized and poorly matched to the human needs of their users. Their fullest development in those terms is emerging as one of the principal technical and design challenges of the emerging information age.

At MIT, the phrase Media Arts and Sciences signifies the study, invention and creative use of enabling technologies for understanding and expression by people and machines. The field is rooted in modern communication, computer and human sciences, and the academic program is intimately linked with research programs within the Media Laboratory. Computers and computation are the most prominent common denominators of this multi-disciplinary merger of previously separate domains. For underlying the explosive advances of the various technologies involved, we are discovering and cultivating a new set of shared intellectual and practical concerns that are becoming the foundations of a new academic discipline. In its simplest form, the field of Media Arts and Sciences can be thought of as exploring the technical, cognitive and aesthetic bases of satisfying human interaction as mediated by technology. In more forward-looking terms, it addresses the quality of life in the information-rich environment of the future.

美國麻省理工學院媒體實驗室MIT Media Lab簡介
媒體實驗室於1980年成立時,本著「傳播與資訊通訊科技終將匯聚合一」的願景,研究有形的原子(atoms)與無形的位元(bits)為人類感官、知覺、互動科技整合帶來的創新領域。

2004.04.16 媒體實驗室成員來台實錄
這次媒體實驗室參與的三位成員分別是Nicholas Negroponte(也就是媒體實驗室的創辦人,「數位革命」一書的作者。目前已經舉世聞名的這個實驗室原先是附屬於建築系底下的,因為當初Negroponte成立這個實驗室時沒人認為這是有意義的舉動),Walter Bender(是媒體實驗室的開國元老之一,從Negroponte手中接下了媒體實驗室執行總監的工作,負責對外的工作與投資人關係)。第三位是石井裕(Hiroshi Ishii)副教授,如果有看過「關鍵報告」的人想必會對他印象深刻,但並不是因為他有演出,而是因為他所研究的科技...
