As products become more capable we are seeing an ever-increasing requirement for natural interaction including voice, image and gesture. Our children and grandchildren may find the concept of pressing buttons and clicking icons quaint when their main mode of interaction is to talk to machines and to have the machines add information to the visual environment of the user. Such new interfaces not only require new technologies and increased intelligence of the underlying service but will have a huge impact on our lives as it becomes easier and faster to have machines perform complex activities on our behalf.
