MIT Media Lab

Vasken Kalayjian meets Jacqueline Karaaslanian of MIT Media Lab to brand her new startup foundation in Armenia. This is the start of a long collaboration. More international projects and place branding follow in this year. Along with Cundari in Canada, GK Brand wins the contract for country branding of Armenia. We conduct a global perception survey in 38 countries.

A visit to the MIT Media Lab sparks a change in the way we think about our work and the way we look at the future, through meetings and conversations with some of the greatest minds of our time, including: Nicholas Negroponte, founder and chairman Emeritus of MIT Media Lab, One Laptop per Child and the author of Being Digital; Marvin Minsky, a cognitive scientist concerned largely with research of artificial intelligence, co-founder of the MIT’s AI laboratory, and author of several texts concerning AI and philosophy; Cynthia Solomon, a pioneer in the fields of artificial intelligence, computer science, and educational computing; Glorianna Davenport, media maker, co-founder of the MIT Media Lab and director of interactive cinema research; and many others.
