      Gates sees diminished role for keyboards


      People will increasingly interact with computers using speech or touch screens rather than keyboards, Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates said.

      "It's one of the big bets we're making," he said during the final stop of a farewell tour before he withdraws from the company's daily operations in July.

      In five years, Microsoft expects more Internet searches to be done through speech than through typing on a keyboard, Gates told about 1,200 students and faculty members Thursday at Carnegie Mellon University.

      Gates also said the software that is proliferating in various branches of science, including biology and astronomy must become even more advanced.

      "They're dealing with so much information that ... the need for machine learning to figure out what's going on with that data is absolutely essential," he said.

      Microsoft is trying to establish ties not only with university computer science departments but also with reseachers in other scientific areas "to help us understand where new inventions are necessary," Gates said.

      Gates plans to retire as Microsoft's chief software architect in July and focus on philanthropy.

      Future of the Keyboard

      Bill Gates recently hinted at the future of the keyboard. Here are some interesting images:






      I bet Apple will be the first to do away with the keyboard as a physical input device. A few years ago, one could have purchased Apple's stock for ~$10/share.

      Greetings rebelAfrika!

      I agree lol. I do so much typing I get tired of it too. I was looking the other day into some speech recognition software like Dragon Naturally Speaking, because I have some projects I am working on and I need something, for typing instead of me. lol The stuff I have in my head that needs to get out into a few books or so. But Dragon won't probably get all my words right anyway because it will have to deal with the Trini accent and I will spend forever and a day trying to edit the damn document which defeats the purpose. But I am hopefull. I would love the technology.

      Thank you for sharing.

      Peace!
