During its first five years, A-Lab has attracted a total of 300 students from a dozen MIT programs to work on projects spanning IoT, digital technology, platforms, finance, marketing, e-commerce, retail, manufacturing, medical supply chains, workplace safety, and global health.
Some projects are tightly focused on dilemmas organizations currently face, which requires students to quickly understand particular business circumstances and domains before performing their descriptive, predictive, or causal analysis. Other projects are more open-ended, and students must think entrepreneurially about how to bring new value to existing data and suggest frontiers for future business opportunity.
Analytics Lab is spearheaded by the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy (IDE).
