Lost Values

Key research questions...

Can we develop compelling distance learning experiences that are more than "lectures over television" ?

Can we create inexpensive solutions that allow people with health problems to be robustly cared for over a distance and have a better quality of life no matter where they reside ?

Can we combine communication technologies and architectural design to create new kinds of work and living spaces that span multiple geographical locations ?

Can we create new systems that enable distributed knowledge and expertise to be aggregated and exploited more seamlessly ?

Can we devise new modes of communication that enable distant family members and loved-ones to feel a greater sense of awareness and togetherness between each other ?

Can we invent new ways to share our expressions and experiences with those who are physically or culturally distant from us, and to archive these records for the benefit of generations in the far future ?
