Intel Corporation today outlined long-term research to make electronic products smarter, safer and capable of adapting to the way people use them around the world. These "user-aware" platform technologies could be used to build systems that intuitively respond to people and their ever-changing needs.
Justin Rattner, Intel senior fellow and director of Intel's Corporate Technology Group, explained in a keynote?at IDF?today that current electronic products have almost no way of knowing how they are being used, who is using them, or what the user wants to accomplish without that person directing their every move. This leads to frustration because of all the things people have to do just to use and manage their technology. The future of electronics will be driven by the need for simpler, more intuitive ways of dealing with technologies that in turn help people do what they want to do. To achieve this will require a new generation of user-aware platform technologies.
