Summary
  • Experts from the computer industry believe that tomorrow's microcomputers may be as easy to use as today's telephones. Such experts think that the microcomputer of the future will be self-teaching and respond to users' spoken commands. The systems will use artificial intelligence, neural networks and genetic algorithms to learn individual user's work patterns. The systems will then be capable of recognizing similar patterns and generating reports on such patterns. Many programmers also believe that advances in multimedia technology will aid in the development of voice-activated microcomputers. Someday this may lead to programming that will be as simple as telling the microcomputer what tasks are to be performed. Easier programming techniques are already being developed in the form of objects, or reusable blocks of code. Apple brings this object-oriented programming approach down to the level of the common user with its Hypercard application development software.
