What is the relationship between distance, authenticity, and the snowy thing
we call knowledge? Ken Goldberg will describe a series of Internet-based
tele-reality experiments including a new system that explores the dynamics
of group behavior.

Technologies such as the telescope and telephone were invented to bridge
distances. We have remote controls for our garage doors and our televisions
(the latter a remote for the remote). The Internet provides unprecedented
push-button access to remote information. With our increased ability to
reach out and touch, others gain the ability to reach out and touch us.

Ken Goldberg is associate professor of engineering at UC Berkeley. He led
the team that developed the first robot on the Internet in 1994. Goldberg's
art installations have appeared in the Interactive Media Festival, Ars
Electronica, the Walker Art Center, ICC Biennale in Tokyo, Berkeley Art
Museum, and the Whitney Biennial 2000. He is editor of The Robot in the
Garden: Telerobotics and Telepistemology in the Age of the Internet (MIT
Press, 2000).
