Google revolutionizes computer programming with Talk-to-do

Some say that the language everyone needs to learn these days is not a "human language" but a computer language. Programming is becoming essential in our day and age, where computers have the potential to do everything we want. But not everyone is able to speak "computer language", and even when they do, they often fail to translate their ideas into something computers can understand. But soon, all that can change... and anyone and everyone might be able to make their dreams come true.

Just the other day we saw how anyone can do complex tasks using easily understandable common language. Now, with this new Talk-to-do project by Google, thing will get even simpler.

Instead of having to learn a computer language, this project allows you to simple talk to your computer and tell it what you want to do! You can thing of it as a mashup of wolfram dynamic language, Google Now voice actions, Siri, IFTTT, and more - all mixed together to make whatever you want come true.

Want to make a program that alerts you whenever a Facebook friend goes out of town? Simply say something like: "Send me an email whenever a Facebook friend goes out of town". Yes, it's that simple.

In a closed session demo, Google engineers showed how you could easily code a pac-man style game using nothing but your voice (even the graphic elements were created by simply describing it to the computer - and the system is intelligent enough to ask you for added details whenever it needs to do so).

This will definitely revolutionize the way people interact with computers, and I can't wait to see what "regular people" will be able to code using Talk-to-do when Google opens it up to the public. Computer programming will never be the same again.
