Post-industrial-revolution HCI

By Colin G. Johnson


This paper argues that computing in its present state is akin to the state of manufacturing prior to the industrial revolution. It is suggested that eventually an industrial revolution will occur in programming through the use of automated program generation tools, which will allow the rapid creation of programs on-the-fly from what-needs-doing descriptions rather than the how-todo- it descriptions of traditional programming. What would interfaces to computers look like in this context, and how would they aid users in coping with complexity
