'Minority Report' tech only 3 years away M'soft boss

Abstract:
Major advances in computer technology will soon see humans interacting with avatars and controlling computers with gestures similar to the ones seen in the film 'Minority Report', Microsoft's Chief Research and Strategy Officer Craig Mundie told Arabian Business.

Mundie added the technology to allow computers to think for themselves was still far off, but predicted the next major breakthrough in computing would be the building of a quantum computer.

Such a computer, he said, would "compute based on on the properties of quantum mechanics down at molecular level" and present humanity with massive opportunities in fields such as synthetic biology, new material and nanotechnology.
