AMD CEO Dirk Meyer believes we'll see a real change in the user interface for computers in the next couple of years, but that massive computing performance enhancements are required to pull it off.
“In the next couple of years we're poised to see a real change in the user interface for computers. You know, the keyboard and the mouse have been the ways we've all interacted with computers,” said Dirk Meyer, chief exec of AMD, in an interview with San Jose Mercury News.
In fact, the decade, which is about to end, can be called the decade of the broadband Internet and high-definition visuals. But while the improvements of graphics in general – including movies, video games, graphics user interfaces, etc. – have been rather dramatic, nothing has changed when it comes to interaction between users and computers. Mr. Meyer expects this to change in the coming years.
