"The Future of Human-Computer Interaction(HCI)"
In the past few years many new technologies have been developed that have the potential to change the fundamental way that people interact with computers. A new trend is to create interfaces that allow for natural interfacing with computers that comprise of speech and motion gestures. New technologies are also allowing for a new field of "the Internet of Things (IoT)" that allow everyday objects to be connected to computers in new ways.
