Phone the Web

The window through which users will access information from networks is widening

Advances in speech recognition, natural language interfaces and software assistants will mean that the way we interact with information and each other over the network will soon be very different too. The range of services available on the Internet could soon be available wherever you are, whenever you need it.

The popularity of text messaging, mobiles and email shows that people-to-people services are the ones that really catch the popular imagination. With this opening window, not just individuals, but groups, clubs, organisations and communities can keep in touch easily. The range of applications for these technologies will link more people and communities than was previously possible using only computer terminals.
