This issue: AI-enabled Human Machine Interfaces


A man-machine interface is like a joke: if you have to explain it, it's not a good one... I think that's why I love my iMac. The interface is simple and well thought out. It allows me to maximise my productivity. That's also probably why I don't like Outlook (which I'm now forced to use): too many options and settings I don't need. A good man-machine interface is one I forget to notice, but thanks to which I don't forget anything and  am more efficient. I dream of an interface that allows me to communicate my thoughts to my iMac, to go even faster. The dream will soon turn into reality...
