Interfacing Telerobotics to the Net: Experiments in Telepistemology (29 Jan 1999)
As our reach is extended, we are vulnerable to error, deception and forgery. How do we distinguish reality from illusion? What can we know? I propose the term ``telepistemology'' to refer to this subclass of epistemological questions.
In the past 4 years, my students and I have developed five telerobotic installations on the WWW. One example is the Telegarden, an installation that allows WWW visitors to view and interact with a remote garden filled with living plants. The most recent is the Shadowserver. I'll discuss these projects and our experience in trying to develop believable interfaces.
