Abstract

The chronobot is a device for time and knowledge exchange. The concept of the chronobot first appeared in a science fiction short story, “Nocturne,” written by the author some 20 years ago [2]. Recently, the Industry Technology Research Institute (ITRI) and Institute for Information Industry (III), two leading research institutes in Taiwan, invited the author to lead a pioneering project to put the ideas into practice to build a realistic device. The chronobot thus was conceived. The chronobot allows a group of people to exchange time and knowledge. This paper describes the basic concept of the chronobot, its mechanism for time/knowledge exchange, and its application to e-learning. Research issues are also discussed.
