When you write a TV program Star Trek of science fiction, you can unknowingly designed the best and the most useful computer.
But its just a cellphone. with a speech processor coupled to microphone and speakers, not MP3 compression. When you address 'computer' it start the writing of a packet to search the internet of all the information available, then use summary writing software to present a webpage to you for your answers.
This is the Star Trek computer as we know it back in the 1960s. We can make it a reality today in a cell phone with a color lcd screen communication through microphone and speakers.
Software begin with Prex0.4 dialer to central office microwave towers. Then send an http packet to any search engine, but summarized before giving us the answers. The voice commands are not cli but packet creation with voice. We have yet to design a speech processor to do search engines.
Fortunately, GPS location system had helped developed a usable speech dictionary, not by speech pattern and speech envelop alone. Highest level data compression will give us the dictionary and common phrases used to identify the purpose of the question. It needs artificial intelligence of statistical study for guidance of intent for the search to satisfy the summary writing of efficient results.
Its a huge project of new technology, but very much related to guidance to navigate a map in GPS system. GPS is specifically a working part of the Star Trek computer. Other questions of other intent has to be developed as the information gets collected. Probably start from a wiki, then history of similar projects as guidance to achieve the collection of info for summary.
But our needs will keep us focused to achieve such a computer design.
Search engine google originally supervised all searches and answers by 270 google programmers. google did not own any of the servers that provided the answers.
Start Trek computer will start with GPS location map search and provide navigation info. But its only one server you can access. Then you have million of wiki servers of all keyword subject matters. The system will accumulate servers for all subject matters eventually.
Star Trek computer is an enterprise system of many data centers.
Today, when you get your iPhone4s, you will find it to be the Star Trek computer built in with a female voice. The search engine is already quite mature with very good answers.
This does not surprise me because I pushed for Start Trek computer search engine on Tuxmachines.org a few years ago. Apple picked it up from there. And made it similar to GPS navigator. I had troubles with Google autoupdate turning into trojan horse virus. and no longer write on tuxmachines.org to give google any suggestion of software best sellers.
Some day, I will pick up an iPhone myself once the database has been built up for history and scientific answers.
Apple will be asked to use their Star Trek computer to tell people where you can find a job(goto Salvation army).
Or where to buy food cheaper. Or which gasoline pump has cheaper price.
These decision making productivity improvement tools can make life easier. And stop inflation and devaluation of paper money. Deflation in economy means easy living.
Over the years computers have helped productivity, where the customers do all the work of ordering goods and services and help the company collect the payment.
iPhone with iOs6 and siri with search support by comparison data gives Star Trek computer flavors.
Just ask any questions and worldwide search is done to give you information to make choices. then passbook keeps data to schedule your life.
This is more than desktop apps ever can do.
To design Star Trek computer apps and data center, many new businesses can be started to compare data(new software for analyzer and comparator servers).
The computer industry is now driven by iPhone clients.
Who would ever predict Apple & Jobs did the Star Trek computer in a phone?
Smartphones started with insufficient memory size to be a desktop apps computer.
So, the big data storage is on the webpages in website apps. This changed the whole computer business. smartphones switch website to get big data. websites will become icons to click on, or speed dialed on boot up.
Many hardware such as mouse and keyboard are replaced by touch screen. But its not enough. Speech to text with spelling check(multiple choice 1-10, same as pingying) will replace keyboard eventually.
So, how can smartphone become a medical device to check your health? Just install hardware sensors, then use websites to analyze then compare with standards of other people. Ultrasonic source and reflection receiver will have a website to generate imaging of internal parts of your body? IR thermometer for body temperature to and from a website for daily monitoring. Pressure sensor to detect blood pressure locally to check muscular response. There are other common medical devices that is easily included, just the sensors not the software to be on smartphones. Star Trek tricorder, here we come.
It maybe a major part of electronic universal healthcare in the future.
medical sensors may be mounted on the 4 corners of the cellphone. To aim and press on.
