Mischa Dohler is a professor at King's College in London, England.
He also plays the piano and writes music.
Dohler wants to teach people how to play the piano using the internet.
"Kids or anybody could learn how to play the piano really properly from the best musicians in the world," he said.
Dohler's idea is to create a glove that the piano student could wear while practicing. This glove could connect over the internet to the teacher, who could be anywhere in the world.
The teacher could then help the student learn proper technique without being in the same room.
The glove would help move the student's hands into the correct position to play the music.
The idea of a person on one side of the world using the internet to accomplish a task on the other side of the world is called "the internet of skills."
Dohler also wants people in the medical industry to use the internet of skills.
Doctors already use robots to help them perform difficult tasks like medical operations. But they are in the same room as the robot and patient.
If a doctor could do remote surgery, it could help save people's lives in places where highly skilled doctors are not available.
The only problem is that, right now, the internet is not fast enough to support this idea.
To perform a difficult task like surgery, a doctor in one place would have to make a movement, and the robot would have to be able to make the same movement within 10 milliseconds.
Companies are working to develop systems that can move data, or information, faster.
Eve Griliches is a Product Line Manager at Cisco Systems. Cisco develops systems that connect people over the internet.
Griliches said "the internet of skills" would not be possible without the work companies like hers are doing to create high-speed video networks.
The same systems that provide video to iPhones and laptops may someday help teach piano or save a life.
Dohler recently discussed his ideas at a conference on communication technology in Los Angeles, California.
He said he came up with the virtual piano teaching idea when he thought about all the other work people do using digital tools.
"We use digital today to negotiate for jobs. We use LinkedIn, emails, etc.," Dohler said. "But then to execute the work, we still need to drive. We need to fly. We need to walk. So I was thinking, ‘Could we virtualize it? Could we digitize skills?'"

米沙的想法是研制出一种手套，学生在练习弹钢琴时需要戴上这种手套 。然后手套就能通过互联网将学生与老师连接在一起，无论老师在哪里 。
很多医生已经开始用机器人来帮助自己操作一些难度系数高的任务，比如手术 。但他们必须和机器人还有病人在同一个房间里 。
伊夫是思科的产品经理 。思科研发了很多能够将人与互联网连接在一起的系统 。
“今天，我们用数码技术来协商工作 。我们用LinkedIn、邮箱等等，”米沙说 。“但是要执行工作的时候，我们依然要驱车前往现场 。有时候要坐飞机或者走路去 。所以我在向，‘就不能将这些事情虚拟化吗？就不能用数码技术吗？’”
