The PC in 6 to 10 years and what thiswill mean for society H. Maurer, Graz U. of Technology

Presentation at the

WWW/Internet

Conference 2004

Madrid, Oct. 6- 10

slide2

To be able to judge implications of the PC 2012 we need to know what it will be like!

A potential scenario for the PC 2012:

Combines: Cell phone, computer, camera, GPS, microphone, loudspeaker, tools for identification and payment, various sensors, permanent volume- oriented access to powerful server system and „Internet“

The PC 2012 does NOT have :

--- harddisk

--- screen

--- keyboard

--- battery

as we now know it

The visible part of the PC 2012

1: The PC proper communicates with eye- glasses and necklace

2: The eye-glasses deliver sound to both ears (ear bone), i.e. we have 3 D sound

5: Using small mirrors the eyeglasses projectpictures directly on retina: 3 D scenes !

4: Camera and Compass. Zoom and macro-mode, pictures for eyes and for computer withpowerful image processing software.

6: Larynx- microphones (Speech recognition), loudspeakers (Language Translation), various sensors

3: Headband for measuring brain activity

(Data input through just thinking!)

Implications of the PC 2012

Changes how we use computers

Information- input:--- through speech--- through hand/finger gesture- recognition (virtual keyboard)--- through direction sensors on e.g. head--- through thinking (brain activity)

implications of the pc 201215
Implications of the PC 2012

Changes communication between persons

Cell phone, yet use is not noticeable ( is this telepathy?), simultaneous transmission of pictures (video- cell phone, photos), possiblycoming from or being stored on a server.

implications of the pc 201216
Implications of the PC 2012

Changes how we discuss things

Information on server with “Interactive Knowledge Center” can be used while we talk, we use guided tours, perform

calculations or communications not noticeable by partner, …

implications of the pc 201217
Implications of the PC 2012

Changes how we deal with people

Camera in glasses recognizes person, provides

info from local storage or server; business cards and ideas are electronically exchanged

implications of the pc 201218
Implications of the PC 2012

Changes how we access information

Clear: Continuous access to knowledge

from local source or via a portal server

revolutionizes thinking … but powerful

“Knowledge Tools”are necessary for e.g. filtering.

implications of the pc 201219
Implications of the PC 2012

Changes how we access information

… also changes type of information we consume. Static paper-based info replaced by dynamic “visual languages”. New types of documents: writing plays minor role, documents may be language independent!

MIRACLE: Multimedia Information Repository: AComputer-based Language Effort

implications of the pc 201220
Implications of the PC 2012

Changes how we experience the world

Computer turns into guide, assistant, and consultant … with info from huge portal

servers!

implications of the pc 201221
Implications of the PC 2012

Changes how we live

How we pay, order, operate tools and gadgets near and far

implications of the pc 201222
Implications of the PC 2012

Changes medical situation

Supervision, assistance, help, evaluation of sensory data

implications of the pc 201223
Implications of the PC 2012

Changes how we learn

Not just HOW (eLearning with lots of communication and collaboration), but even WHAT. Much current knowledge will

reside in servers and PCs, not in human brains!

implications of the pc 201224
Implications of the PC 2012

Changes how we work

Massive computer support through “Interactive Knowledge Centers”, directcollaboration with other persons, usingsimilarity recognition and other knowledge tools.

implications of the pc 201225
Implications of the PC 2012

Changes Humanity

PCs and portal servers become extensions of

the human mind, and minds interconnect

through communication tools readily.
