Disappearable Computing and what it means to us | Nikolaj Hviid | TEDxTUMSalon



three years ago I wanted to do something you and I wanted to do something that enables people that makes them better what did we like to do and protects them while doing so we all have deficiencies maybe me more than you who knows but I had this vision or something I wanted to achieve it that maybe even window beyond my lifetime and my first step was making this thing is a tiny audible contextual computer so you might not know what that is but i'll tell you why i make these things this is not the future and you should be happy about it because it's not a tech future is a human future it's a future where we are in the center not computers so i want to take you through a hundred years of interaction 50 years back 50 years in the future what do I think that's going to happen why I'm making this about 50 years ago you have stem cards this is the way you interact with a computer you make holes in a piece of paper you put that into the leader and the computer understood what you wanted to do it evolved luckily because it would be kind of tedious to in pokemon with punch cartoon so we added more sense as we ended at a keyboard that made it easier for us to interact the interface changed and we had a new type of interaction model input-output visual one keyboard hi abstraction layer be punching something something happens there now we evolved luckily when you evolve fast so we started having more sensors we started having trackpad strike started having mice and the interface changed as well it changed in fact so much that we invented a new type of computer computer that was on our Island in front of us it also had changed the interaction models you changed new ways of understanding what advice does and someone has spent billions on making a new smartphone and the most popular app was the I beer remember that here's a nap and you drank the beer there was a beer depicted on the smartphone and the experiments are depicted how you could directly drink that so they spent billions of dollars in the most popular app was a simulation of our to drink a beer the input output model changed again we're all of sudden touching things we're touching something that seemed haptic but still in 2d universe but this is so old-school this is so old because people have been working on changing that for a long time and but it starts just read the start so these computers need to understand what you do and how you do it so you need to add a lot of sense as to if you've tried to use Siri or other things just saying something it's not enough the device actually need to know where you are what you're doing how you're acting upon it so you need to have incredibly intimate censorious on your body the computers need to understand how you move what intention is what were your motivation is adding those senses creates a very fine model of understanding what you do and what your intention is but this is not really viable we're not going to walk around like this but this is going to change because senses become much smaller interested last 10 years sensors have shrunk by a factor of 25 and we'll continue we see incredible miniaturization not just what happens today but even a few years ago this is by the fraunhofer institute making blood pressure sensor that is embedded into the blood wings and this is tiny so it's not just about one sensor it's not about two sensors you have millions of sensors in your body and you will have maintenances of sensors on your body in the future all of those will understand what you do and we much more discreet in interacting with you they were understand where are you in what kind of surrounding are you they understand what you're doing and how you are actually doing physically while performing that action we call this contextual computing the computer chooses to do act differently depending on the context our computers in the ear if you get a phone call you're not it will pick up the call that's contextual computing while it do something something happens and imagine what happens if you don't have just phi 10 but millions of senses the international models will change you will not have something in your pocket anymore you'll actually take was something that is much more discreet this is made by a Belgian research team not this year but about four years ago he actually has a contact lens in his eye with a display so when you remember the IBM computer from in the 80s just 30 years later you have absolutely incredible graphics on your screens not not less than 30 years away we'll have in the same kind of amazing graphics in your eyes you will not be able to distinguish between reality and this artificial life based upon a sensor or based upon our rendering device in your eyes so we will have have computer systems that will understand how you move how you feel what you want to do and how you want to do it and simulate completely an interaction with someone else anything from drinking beer feeling dizzy or to a point of arousing you or creating new ways of interacting with people and it's not about having the technology in the center while you do it you look like this it will all be gone computers will be tiny you won't be able to see you have one on but you'll be enabled by it in fact you'll be able to so much by it that the knowledge the communication the entertainment that is that your hands is going to enable you to take jobs you couldn't take before it might enable a guy that works off the street in Australia to take a lap job in Europe while he is in Australia he doesn't need to be there this entire system is not made for us to be engulfed in technology it is made for us to release ourselves as technology and enable ourselves in the situation way in but it might have a lot of other consequences the systems will be linking us on us with knowledge that we couldn't access before currency changes from being money to knowledge and enablement the company that owns knowledge and no one's the enablement has a currency it's not longer a dollar is something else but on the other hand if it's in the hand of someone wrong they have access to anything that you think what to do or want to achieve would you like someone to know whom you are having sex with where you have to having sex with them especially if it's a company this is going to change complete industries if you're looking at the intimate knowledge of how I feel in certain situations how I react to certain situations or how I vector food or however actual situations or however we act you to environment change it also means that i am very specific i can be helped with very focused medicine it will be personalized medicine and all of that data that enables medicine to become personalized for comfort disappearo computers now if you can simulate the environment doing why do you need to go to work with these immersive hyper realistic environments you will not need to go into an office anymore so the entire retail space would be completely thrown or you won't need offices anymore and you won't need to go to them imagine the impact on the real estate market so people talk about self-driving cars being in the future it's not because there will be obsolete you won't need to go with them where you need to go if you can via if you can experience everything artificially even down to emotional impact is this going to happen next 50 years I don't know but if you look at the last 50 years in the acceleration if you just project what we're doing right now we will have it thank you very much you
