Next Generation User Interfaces: 10 Trends to Watch

If you thought computing has been amazing, just wait, because we are entering an era of advancement that is mind blowing. What is pushing it? The answer is widely available, cloud-based supercomputing power; miniaturized computing devices; ubiquitous high-speed broadband; artificial intelligence (AI); and billions of sensors.

We need to interact with computing nearly constantly, and increasingly with less traditional computing devices, such as smartphones, smart speakers, wearables, and, eventually, autonomous cars and smart cities. The key to unlocking the potential of next-generation computing is putting that computing power more easily and seamlessly into the hands of as many people as possible. The key is a fully evolved user interface (UI).

Tractica has identified the following 10 key trends that are moving the market toward highly sophisticated, multimodal UIs:

1. UIs become multimodal
2. UIs become conversational
3. UIs can see
4. UIs become three-dimensional (3D)
5. UIs become intuitive
6. UIs put users in control
7. UIs become intelligent
8. Visual UIs accelerate because of four key augmented reality (AR) use cases
9. 3D UIs accelerate because of three key virtual reality (VR) use cases
10.Conversational UIs accelerate because of three key natural language processing (NLP) use cases
