MIT Game Lab explores the potential of games and play
MIT has established new game research facilities in the Karl Taylor Compton Laboratories (Building 26), where MIT's first computer game was developed 50 years ago. The MIT Game Lab, a program of MIT SHASS Comparative Medis Studies, inaugurated its premises with the symposium "Games in Everyday Life and Why That Matters to You." The symposium brought together academics, students and professionals from varied industries such as games, health care and finance to discuss the role of research in game development and vice-versa.
