Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak wants “human computer” to tutor kids

PanARMENIAN.Net - Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak said at a conference this week in Northern Ireland the future could allow each student to have a personalized "human computer" to serve as a school and career tutor.

As Mashable reported citing Belfast Telegraph, Wozniak told attendees at the Londonderry's Millennium Forum for the European Business Network the concept would facilitate one-on-one teaching and encourage students to take action — such as write a book — rather than focus on studying tested ideas.

"We are moving closer to where a computer is like a person and we can have normal conversations with it," Wozniak said. "We will be able to have one teacher per student and let students go on in their own direction."

He added that the growing trend of mobile devices becoming more human-like over the next few decades will pose new opportunities for innovation.

"A computer is an awful cheap teacher, it has to get more human in its characteristics — anything another human being can understand is what I want my phones to understand," he said. Wozniak also commented on the future of wearables in technology, thanks in part to the buzz around Google Glass.

"I would love to get low-cost plasters to push buttons and change the color of my car, wearable technology is something we are hearing so much about at the moment," he added.
