luiy's insight:

The Kinetica iPad app brings spreadsheets into the multi-touch era, letting users manipulate and explore data with natural gestures. The app, developed at Carnegie Mellon University’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute, displays a spreadsheet’s data as colored spheres and offers a variety of ways to rearrange the information or pull out certain data points to make comparisons. The app’s creators see Kinetica as a proof of concept for a more intuitive approach to data visualization.

 

The app will soon be available on the iOS App Store.

Les deux régimes de l’interactivité aujourd’hui

 

À la fin des années 1980 intervient une bifurcation, les jeux vidéo développant leurs propres exigences d’interactivité (gameplay) emprunteront durant une vingtaine d’année un chemin distinct à celui de l’informatique interactive. Cette distinction des genres est une distinction des usages. Deux mondes différents, où la nature de l’interactivité diffère : d’un coté on trouve l’effectuation propre à l’informatique vue comme outil ; de l’autre coté, l’instanciation où le sujet traverse l’écran dans une visée plus ludique.

luiy's insight:

Stephen Wolfram's recent announcement may change all that. The Wolfram Alpha natural language he has announced seems to be a solution to many complex human/computer interface problems. According to Wolfram, symbolic programming is the future of systems design. He says:

"There are plenty of existing general-purpose computer languages. But their vision is very different—and in a sense much more modest—than the Wolfram Language. They concentrate on managing the structure of programs, keeping the language itself small in scope, and relying on a web of external libraries for additional functionality. In the Wolfram Language my concept from the very beginning has been to create a single tightly integrated system in which as much as possible is included right in the language itself."

Wolfram also talks about the fluidity of the new language, suggesting that coding and data can become interchangeable:

"In most languages there’s a sharp distinction between programs, and data, and the output of programs. Not so in the Wolfram Language. It’s all completely fluid. Data becomes algorithmic. Algorithms become data. There’s no distinction needed between code and data. And everything becomes both intrinsically scriptable, and intrinsically interactive. And there’s both a new level of interoperability, and a new level of modularity."
