Forget that keyboard and mouse. If Bill Gates is right, it may not be
long before you talk your personal computer into doing your bidding.
"We're looking for a more intelligent computer system, one that can
be interacted with easily," Microsoft's chairman said Friday. Gates
was demonstrating the company's speech-to-text software and the
latest in computer vision technology to some 6,500 software
developers. While computer vision, technology that brings video
images to the computer screen in real time on voice commands, is
still in the early stages, a demonstration wowed the audience. For

Clearly Bill as well as everyone else in the computer industry is reading
FoRK. If we like it, it must be good, full steam ahead.
