Chief executive officer of Advanced Micro Devices, a developer of central processing units and graphics processing units, said in an interview that in the coming years the interaction between the human and the computer will change drastically. But in order to enable a drastic change, massive computing performance improvements are required.

“In the next couple of years we're poised to see a real change in the user interface for computers. You know, the keyboard and the mouse have been the ways we've all interacted with computers,” said Dirk Meyer, chief exec of AMD, in an interview with San Jose Mercury News.

In fact, the decade, which is about to end, can be called the decade of the broadband Internet and high-definition visuals. But while the improvements of graphics in general – including movies, video games, graphics user interfaces, etc. – have been rather dramatic, nothing has changed when it comes to interaction between users and computers. Mr. Meyer expects this to change in the coming years.

“Given the tremendous improvement in display technologies, [stereo] 3D displays being around the corner, and the processing capability that we are going to be able to deliver with the combination of graphics and CPUs — unlocking things like face recognition, motion recognition and so on — the way in which people interact with computers, is going to change,” believes Mr. Meyer.

The standards of quality will only grow, asserts the chief executive of the world’s second largest designer of x86 central processing units. So, in the next few years computers will require even more horsepower to handle new tasks and interfaces. Ultimately, they will become more productive.

“As a result, people are going to start developing higher expectations of their experience from the computer and I think that's a good thing. The user experience, the user interface for computers, is not good enough, it's not very satisfying. We can make it better and more productive,” claimed the head of AMD.
