Computer capabilities in the future-for a computer type
Computer is a part of our nowadays world. More and more we become dependent on computers. So far computers haven’t overcame peoples’ brains, but in the near future computers will be more intelligent than we could ever dreamed about it. Soon every step that we make will be followed by computers. The main thing is, how it will affect peoples lives, worldviews, and thinking. Are we going to be dependent on our brains or will we have to depend only on computers?
Future computers that see will change how we use consumer electronics and computing devices at home and work. For instance, your TV could pause the show you are watching without the need for a remote control. Just by seeing you get up to go get a beer, your TV would know you're leaving the room and no longer paying attention.
Other applications might include a set of programs that help handicapped people control their PCs and all other connected devices in the home with head or eye movements. There could also be intuitive documents that sense when students are confused by "looking" at their facial expressions. Then, a computer might retrieve some supplemental information that could help the stumped student better understand the context of what he's reading.
Computers created within the next two decades could revolve around a technology in which laser beams converge inside crystals the size of sugar cubes, forming holographic images for processing huge amounts of information. Perhaps by the year 2020, computers will revolve around new types of optical processors. These "holographic computers" might use crystals that receive and manipulate data-laden images, processing information much faster than conventional computers.
Future computers will be more human oriented, knowing how to track the users' behaviors and habits, thus better serving their individual needs. With the new operating system, users will not be forced...
