SAN FRANCISCO--Intel is working on future technology that is capable of understanding human behavior and pointing people to the appropriate course of action.
Mobile devices of tomorrow will be smaller, yet equipped with more powerful computing capabilities, and enjoy platform-wide power efficiency, Mary Smiley, Intel's director of emerging platforms, told the media here on Monday, or "Day Zero," of the Intel Developer Forum.
A key feature of such devices will be sensors that provide the ability to understand the world of the users, as well as the "situational awareness" to provide inference and guidance.
"Tomorrow, (those devices) will have such a deep understanding of you, they will scream out what's important to you," Smiley said.
Aside from the technology being very cool, do we really want our computers to be doing this? It's kind of scary, actually.
I can imagine that sensors could serve a purpose when it comes to helping the blind or hearing impaired. For emergency purposes they will probably be great, imagine your cell-phone automatically calling a doctor when you need one, or order pizza when you need it :) As with all new technology there will probably be trouble-makers
