ABSTRACT
The article reports that the monitor and keyboard will soon be replaced by the Orwellian technology that watches, responds to, and even predicts human actions and needs. This is the vision of the next step in computing painted by research groups such as Intel, Philips and BT. They predict that benign, hidden computer intelligence will soon be all around homes, cars and workplaces, and have spent millions developing the concepts underlying this vision. However, leading engineers have questioned whether technology can meet the unrealistic visions of research laboratories, and have criticized the lack of focus on the engineering challenges.
