B4 – Bits, Bots, Brain and behavior- is an intense four-week RESEARCH CAMP combining graduate students from the Macro Connections Group at the MIT Media Lab, the Center for Research in Social Complexity at Universidad del Desarrollo (UDD), and selected students from other graduate programs in Chile.
