Enhancing Human and Computer-mediated knowledge transfer
In his book "The Unfinished Revolution: Human-Centered Computers and What They Can Do For Us" professor Michael Dertouzos unmasks the deficiencies of our present systems and makes a compelling case for "human-centric computing
"Do you sometimes feel you're serving the computers and other techno-gadgets in your life, rather than them serving you? If so, you have prestigious company in Michael L. Dertouzos, who has headed up the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Laboratory for Computer Science for more than 25 years. In The Unfinished Revolution, Dertouzos unmasks the deficiencies of our present systems and makes a compelling case for "human-centric computing," which has the potential to dramatically reduce our techno-aggravation, while improving our productivity and effectiveness.
Written for people who use computers, and for the technologists who design and build them, Dertouzos's latest work clearly lays out a vision of human-centric computing. But it doesn't stop there. As in his previous works, Dertouzos connects his strong vision of the near future with practical ways computer users and designers can help create that future.
At the book's core, Dertouzos identifies
five human-centric forces--speech understanding, automation,
individualized information access, collaboration, and customization--and
then provides specific examples of how each can be used to improve how we
work with information technology"
