Computers that get to know you!

OCTOBER 21, 2001 — What if your computer could guess what you wanted to do next? Wouldn't that make your life easier, and wouldn't it make your work go faster?

You bet it would!

Two gentlemen named Bob Metcalfe and Eric Horvitz have been thinking about a way to make our computers smarter, so that our computers can anticipate our needs. Mr. Metcalfe and Mr. Horvitz even have a name for such computers: "continually anticiparallelistic computing systems."

Basically, if you had a computer like this, what it would do is pay attention to your work habits and learn about your routines. After it thought that it knew enough about you, it would start to do things for you without your having to ask.

This extra activity wouldn't slow down your work, because the computer would only do the extra activity in idle moments when it isn't busy doing anything else.

What a great idea!
