New interface methods will revolutionise how we interact with computers

The artificial intelligence factor

Increased accuracy of speech recognition is just the beginning of how new interfaces are transforming the way we interact with computers. Voice recognition is one of the drivers of this change. "We can say, 'Remind me that I have a meeting at five,' and that's very different from turning on the phone, getting to the home screen, picking the clock applications, putting it into alarm mode, and creating a new alarm," says Henry Holtzman, who heads the MIT Media Lab's Information Ecology group. Apple's Siri is an example of a tool that uses artificial intelligence to figure out what the user wants to do.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
