In order to make major improvements in the quality of Internet services, research and development work is proceeding worldwide on super-high-speed networks operating at gigabit levels, the so-called next-generation Internet (NGI). This paper discusses the nature of the paradigm shift that will be accelerated as the NGI pervades society.
First, we define the NGI society as one in which the network is so ubiquitous that no one will be conscious of connecting with it. Then we investigate trends and expectations of current NGI research and development projects worldwide. Secondly, we have performed comprehensive questionnaire-based market research into new technologies. This reveals that Japan can be expected to create global markets by developing NGI applications in home-electronic appliances, mobile assistants, transportation systems, and animation games.
Furthermore, we generalize the discussion on the nature of the paradigm shift as follows. Although modem western rationalism produced the astonishing growth of the industrialized countries in the 19th similar to 20th centuries, this approach alone no longer offers the prospect of much further advance. The 21st century paradigm for science and technology, for social, economic and governmental systems, and for industrial structures and working styles will necessarily shift towards autonomous and cooperative decentralization. The Internet is a decentralized computer system that is operated autonomously and cooperatively by individuals and small organizations. The NGI will further accelerate this paradigm shift.
We conclude that this approach is essentially similar to the traditional oriental philosophy of harmony, and urge that it should be adopted in positioning Japan within the global, information-oriented network society of the 21st century.
