One of the technology trends you’ll hear a lot more about over the next year or two is natural user interface, or NUI. More natural ways to interact with technology are rapidly emerging—multi-touch, voice, vision, gestures, and many more. This means that for the first time, computing will adapt to us and demonstrate some degree of “intelligence”. This trend will see computers shift from being tools to helpers—performing tasks on our behalf based on an awareness of the environments we are in and the context of our actions. Ultimately, this will enable the development of computing interfaces that are far more natural and increasingly simple to use. This shift will help the next billion people to join the digital revolution as the technology learning curve disappears.
