It is nothing less than an inspired manifesto for the future of computing that will change how businesses, organizations, and governments work with each other, and how individuals interact. It represents the dawn of a new era in information technology.Human-centered computing goes beyond the empty promises of user-friendly interfaces. At its foundation are five key technologies that will dramatically amplify our human capabilities: natural interaction, automation, individualized information access, collaboration, and customization. By exploiting these five emerging technologies in combination, we will see a vast increase in our productivity and a marked change in the ways we live and work. Human-centered technologies will make computers simpler, more natural, and more useful to us. Read by Paul Hecth
