Early computers were nothing more than sophisticated calculators. They lacked proper user interfaces, and users communicated their intentions by punching carefully placed holes on cards. Advanced computers and handhelds of the present time are no better—we communicate our intentions by punching virtual buttons and menus. We need to move beyond punching buttons by building smart systems that can reason about the intentions of their users. In this talk, I will talk about how insights gained from careful analysis of natural human behaviour can be used to build systems that can predict user intentions, and take proactive action accordingly.
