How will it look like?
[pic]THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION THAT CAME TO OUR MINDS. • Will we be able to talk to our computers in the future? • Will they respond freely?
• Can they understand us and do what we need before we ask for them? • Will screens be always touch sensitive?
• Can computers of the future read our minds and maybe face expressions? Although we are not sure, but we will have to wait to see
WILL COMPUTERS IN THE FUTURE HELP PRESERVE THE ENVIRONMENT AND MAKE OUR LIFE BETTER OR WILL THEY DESTROY OUR NATURE? Will the rapidly advancing technology make our life easier and more enjoyable and help us live a better life, or will they lead to the destruction of mankind? A lot of controversy arises when this topic is discussed in any community, so what do you think?

In the last two decades advances in computing technology, from processing speed to network capacity and the internet, have revolutionized the way scientists work. From sequencing genomes to monitoring the Earth's climate, many recent scientific advances would not have been possible without a parallel increase in computing power - and with revolutionary technologies such as the quantum computer edging towards reality, what will the relationship between computing and science bring us over the next 15 years? This Nature web focus combines commentaries from leading scientists and news features analysis from journalists assessing how computing science concepts and techniques may transform mainstream science by 2020.
