New Human-Machine Interface as the Future of Work

Friday, March 11
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 18ABCD
531 E 4th St


The most important advance in computation will arrive in the form of a human-machine interface that allows digital devices and systems to properly support sophisticated, collaborative processes and workflows. This will correctly feel like science fiction.

A worthy professional computing system must be able to coherently address a roomful of pixels, from displays on walls to those on laptops and mobile devices. It must allow parallel control from multiple participants using a variety of different personal devices and input modalities.

A new universal UI will mediate: one immensely capable yet entirely natural; evocative of the real world; exhilarating to use. This is work's future.
