The Future of Computer Graphics The interface between people and computers is evolving at an ever accelerating pace. In another ten years this interface will be radically different, and in twenty years it will be utterly transformed.
At some point our SmartPhones are likely to become obsolete, as advancing technology allows us simply to perceive the world around us a ubiquitous and seamlessly integrated augmented reality.
Once this future has been achieved, what will we do with it? What will it mean to be a social human? Based on current trends and a little inspired guesswork, we look at the implications for identity, privacy, education, culture and the arts, economics, politics and the digital divide.
