NII, Collaboration, Multimedia information dissemination, Commerce, Metacomputing, Webtop productivity
We describe the expected capability of the NII (as an evolution of the Internet) interns of five broad service areas---collaboration, multimedia information dissemination, commerce, metacomputing, and Webtop productivity. We illustrate the demands on these services and the technology implications by examination of two application areas---manufacture of complex systems, such as aircraft and crisis management, command and control.
