One of my favorite Human-Computer interactions in Cinema was the scene in Star Trek IV where Scotty interacts with the computer at the manufacturing plant. This has always stuck with me as a display of how we expected technology to change. For me, prior to the movie, I never gave much thought to how we interacted with computers. Seeing this as a kid made me realize that the human/computer interface will continue to change and so will our expectations. As I sit here and type this I know that my days of using a keyboard are numbered. I will explore current and upcoming voice recognition technologies in upcoming posts.
The below video is a bit long… so if you want to skip ahead to the best part follow the link below the video!
