Smart Devices and Soft Controllers
January/February 2005 (vol. 9 no. 1)
pp. 82-85
Craig W. Thompson, Unviersity of Arkansas
What if things (initially devices, but maybe things in general, including pets, places, and even abstractions) were smarter, easier to use, could diagnose their own problems, present different interfaces to different people, and communicate with each other--all seamlessly, without our having to learn much to install, use, or repair them? Could it be we are wasting a lot of time accommodating our devices while they should be accommodating us?
Index Terms:
smart devices, device interfaces
