In a News.com article, Gates is still reported to be addressing challenging issues at Microsoft. And one of his major interest seems to be in — natural interfaces.
“Big screens, touch, ink, speech, that’s something that I think, along with cloud computing, is the next big change in how we think about software,” Gates told CNET News.com on Tuesday.
He further adds:
“All these things about natural interface are coming to the fore, and they are probably the thing that’s most underestimated right now about the digital revolution,” Gates said.
I like this. The only bad thing is that this has not received as much attention even from Microsoft as it deserves. I think much more attention and research needs to go in this area.
