The gap between man and machine is dwindling. The physical and digital worlds are merging. How will we interact with machines that are becoming increasingly intelligent in the future? Will there even be a perceptible human-machine interface? Prof. Dr. Anreas Butz, Chair for Human-Computer Interaction at the Department for Informatics at the Ludwig Maximillians University in Munich explores theories on his long-held conviction that computer technology has to take a back seat to a far greater extent. Butz suggests that future interfaces should engage with people in a far more natural way where they are – in our everyday world, with all our senses. "That's why the connection to the digital universe in the current test setup is a very real one you can touch and feel."
