The CEO of Google, Sundar Pichai, sees the future being computer-free as he expects the device to “fade away.”

Sundar Pichai sees the computer disappearing from it’s physical form and becoming an artificial intelligence assistant. He said in a Google’s Founder’s Letter,

“Over time, the computer itself-whatever its form-will be an intelligent assistant helping you through your day.”

Pichai even admits he wants to move away from devices and shift into an artificial intelligence world.

“We will move from mobile first to an AI first world.”

My guess is through the use of sensory augmentation or technological implants, where we will eventually physically connect to technology. As it is we’re already wearing technology with devices like the Apple watch.

Much of this could actually be a thing one day especially if you’ve been paying attention to the evolution of technology in recent years. I mean take a look at Siri, and Windows’ ‘Cortana’ plus Google’s voice searches. They’re all built around the idea of a search engine. Then you have other companies experimenting with virtual reality; Sony just patented their design of a VR-contact lens. Combine the two and you may have something Google’s CEO could be hinting towards. I mean Google is even working on a smart contact lens of their own too!

All of the signs are around us. Much of the science fiction we’ve been seeing in films and video games are slowly creeping into our world. How would you feel if this technological shift became reality?
