EMC and MIT research collaborations would focus initially on new models for data ownership and usage; innovative interfaces for social and business transactions; and technologies to help consumers take control of their own healthcare management.

“Research and advanced technology groups across EMC, along with our global university research partners, are discovering and exploring new technologies that will shape the future of digital information,” said Jeff Nick, EMC senior vice president and chief technology officer.

He further added that this is an incredible opportunity for EMC to bring together some of the world’s leading research minds and innovators in areas such as personal information management, information integration and cloud computing.

Andrew Lippman, associate director, MIT Media Lab said, “People’s lives are becoming increasingly connected.”

“By collaborating with leading technology companies like EMC, the Media Lab can invent new possibilities for creating, collecting and using information that empower users and bring a wealth of benefits to people’s digital lives and communities,” he added.

In addition to its Media Lab sponsorship, EMC has enjoyed a longstanding relationship working with MIT on other programs and initiatives, including MIT’s Industrial Liaison Program (ILP), Center for Information Systems Research (CISR) and the Industrial Advisory Council for Minority Education (IACME), added the release.
