I recently learned about the company Hu.ma.ne, which was founded by ex-Apple employees and is working on a tech product that might be the next big thing following the iPhone and the Apple Watch.
Last night, I watched the TED talk in which former Apple designer and Humane co-founder Imran Chaudhri gave the world a first glimpse of what they’ve been developing.
In this exclusive preview of groundbreaking, unreleased technology, Imran envisions a future where AI enables our devices to “disappear.” He gives a sneak peek of his company’s new product—shown for the first time ever on the TED stage—and explains how it could change the way we interact with tech and the world around us.
Chaudhri believes that the future of technology involves creating screenless and standalone wearable devices that integrate artificial intelligence (AI) seamlessly into daily life.
He introduces a new wearable device and platform developed by his company, Humane, that is designed to be privacy-first and interact with the world in a natural and unobtrusive way.
The device allows users to access the power of computing while remaining present in their surroundings, enabling a more balanced and intuitive human-technology relationship.
Chaudhri demonstrates the potential of AI by showcasing features such as language translation, personalized assistance, and contextual understanding, emphasizing the transformative impact AI can have on our lives.
Imran believes that the future of technology involves creating screenless and standalone wearable devices that integrate artificial intelligence (AI) seamlessly into daily life.
Imran talks about how, as tech has evolved, computing devices have become smaller and smaller. He ends his presentation by saying the future is not on our face or in the palm of our hand.
Here is the TED talk.
This new technology reminds me a lot of the movie HER in which the lead character, Theodore Twombly, has a relationship with an operating system or AI partner which he interacts with via wireless earbuds and a device that looks a lot like what Humane is developing. Here is the trailer.
The concept looks fascinating and the possibilities are endless, but will this be the future of personal tech powered by AI? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
