At the same time, shouldn’t they also be ameliorating to a state where complex objectives can be executed without equally complicated computer input?
As the vastness and the interconnectedness of computer systems ingrains itself into ever-complex systems, the way that we input data into said systems needs to evolve with increasing complexity to compensate for the amount of human effort that would be required to operate these future systems.
The data points on the graph represent a new type of input or a substantial evolution in a certain input technology. Each technology is graphed out in chronological order. The data in the chart will be provided at the end of the article.
This will lead to the final phase of computer input, where artificial intelligence is integrated not only into our brains, but in our minds, giving humans the ability to program complex systems from pure thought. However, technology such as this will not be available until all three phases of computer input have fully matured, and our understanding of the brain and mind has evolved into a more concrete and fully understood science.
