Increased accuracy of speech recognition is just the beginning of how new interfaces are transforming the way we interact with computers. Voice recognition is one of the drivers of this change. "We can say, 'Remind me that I have a meeting at five,' and that's very different from turning on the phone, getting to the home screen, picking the clock applications, putting it into alarm mode, and creating a new alarm," says Henry Holtzman, who heads the MIT Media Lab's Information Ecology group. Apple's Siri is an example of a tool that uses artificial intelligence to figure out what the user wants to do.
