Hyperreality: Paradigm for the Third Millenium

Routledge (2001)
Abstract
What comes after the Internet? The world of the virtual, a place where you could be hard pressed to know if the person standing next to you is physically real or virtual or whether they have human or artificial intelligence. The Third Millennium promises to bridge the gap between the natural and artificial in new and powerful ways- namely HyperReality. Here there are new scopes for telemedicine, HyperTranslation (to speak in one language and be heard in another), and virtual reality popping out of books, and media to co-exist with us. This book is edited by two primary actors in the field of HyperReality- Terashima led the team which developed the prototype for HyperReality and its conceptualization, and Tiffin is founder of the first virtual university and a leader on the role of technology in education. HyperReality offers a large window into the future of technology, defining what it is, how it works, and explores the implications of this for everything from medicine to leisure, the elderlyand work. The book boasts a list of contributors from around the world and from multiple disciplines- many who have worked directly on the development and application of this new technology.
