Microsoft Research : Natural User Interface (NUI) - Pervasive Computing Is on Its Way ~ The *Official AndreasCY*

Microsoft Research : Natural User Interface (NUI) - Pervasive Computing Is on Its Way ~ The *Official AndreasCY* | future of user interfaces | Scoop.it
In this interview we learn about the developments in NUI and thoughts about a future of ubiquitous computer-human interactions.

Via Wilfried Andral
David Rowe's insight:

More evidence of ongoing research in this space.  Natural user interfaces and "Pervasive Computing" will most likely be among the next buzzwords to invade the technology industry.

Google mapping the brain, plotting face recognition, analyst asserts Network World And while the time frame on this project is a matter of decades, many subsidiary accomplishments could result, he added, citing improvements to natural language...
David Rowe's insight:
Google is making large investments in robotics which, in addition to wearables such as glass will benefit from more natural humanistic interfaces. A new generation of user interfaces seems to be right around the corner, and indeed could make technology more common than our present tech heavy world.

Continuous Natural User Interface - YouTube

Nils Petersen and Didier Stricker, 'Continuous Natural User Interface: Reducing the Gap Between Real and Digital World', in Proceedings of the International ...
David Rowe's insight:

This video introduces the important concept of a user interface which spans multiple devices.  This is another concept for user interface designs of the future.  It is especially relevant to smart phones and tablets, but also to smart displays in other forms.

Sharing Information Through Social Interactions: Pervasive Computing and Natural User Interfaces - YouTube

An exploration of a few of the implications of ubiquitous computing in a post-PC work environment.
David Rowe's insight:

This video is a bit gimmicky, but nevertheless, it is a interpretation of a future, more natural form of user interface.

Hype Cycle for Human-Computer Interaction, 2013

Hype Cycle for Human-Computer Interaction, 2013 | future of user interfaces | Scoop.it
David Rowe's insight:

I foresee mood recognition, natural language and gesture control all being included in future "natural" user interfaces.  These complex natural interfaces will be ever more beneficial as we interface with more varied technologies.  Household products, including appliances and mobile robot interfaces would benefit, as would car & home automation.

Dell's New Research Lab Is Working On Mood-Sensing Computers Like The One In The Movie 'Her'

Dell's New Research Lab Is Working On Mood-Sensing Computers Like The One In The Movie 'Her' | future of user interfaces | Scoop.it
About six months ago, Dell announced that it was launching its first ever R&D department.
David Rowe's insight:

An interesting connection is made here between gesture control and mood sensing.  The real challenge will be to find a way to reliably sense mood without needing a sensor headband.

David Rowe's insight:

An interesting insight into how the current generation of augmented reality smartphone apps could come to be truly useful in the future.  The example of Educational AR could make user manuals a thing of the past.

AR 7 year futures, direct to brain, replacing reality - brings a whole new meaning to 2020 vision! 

 

"We are now in the early stage of computer–brainwave interface. As this develops, it will move into AR. We can be looking at something and thinking imaginatively about what we see, and it will be created as we think. An example might be an architect looking at a vacant land site and thinking about what design of building would best suit the site."

Jeni Mawter's curator insight, December 19, 2012 8:05 PM

Guaranteed to blow your mind. These will have a huge impact on storytelling in the future.

Garry Schulz's curator insight, December 20, 2012 4:44 PM

This article paints an interesting picture of where augmented reality might take us over the next decade.  With major players like Google and Microsoft investing heavily in the field there's no doubt that we'll see major developments in this area.  As with all technologies highlighted here, the key from a strategic perspective is to have a view on how major advances in augmented reality might impact not only your existing business but also the business eco-system within which you operate.

Cool Vendors in Human-Machine Interface, 2013

David Rowe's insight:

Some interesting, though at present somewhat unuseful, implementations of natural user interfaces. 4tiitoo seems the most complete interface, but it would need applications to be built for it to take full advantage of its "Natural User Inter Action".  The Muse and Neurowear products may be of value to disabled users, particularly those with extremely limited use of their bodies (such as quadriplegics).  Regular users would most likely resist having to wear sensors or headbands.

David Rowe's insight:

Facial recognition is another aspect of the future natural interface that would need to be integrated to provide the computer with the appropriate user information, and potentially context for the users commands.

David Rowe's insight:

Apple registering a very vague and broad patent lends weight to the belief that this is an area to watch.  Having said that, tech giants have a tendency to patent every hunch.

David Rowe's insight:

Cognitive computing will help to truly personalise computers, and these computer systems would be armed with the inputs we take for granted, ie sight, hearing, and touch.  This could allow them to simulate human emotion and insight more effectively resulting in the computerisation of some "creative" processes.
