“Over time, computing will adapt naturally to people, be more immersive and ambient, not as a black rectangle (in the form of a mobile phone). The future will be AR (Augmented Reality). You see elements of it in watches right now. And to do all that, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is going to play a big part in it. We are working on it - Google Lambda is one such product, which will be using AI to understand what is being said (speech) and lead to conversation,” added Pichai.

He also said that AR will be a more natural experience, “ Today you have elements of AR (as watch or glasses with overlaid information), but over time, it will be more natural, not interfering with you interacting with the real world. You want people to be able to interact more naturally, like how you see and speak, all of that will play out in computing as well.”
