Scientist working at a computer terminal on the analysis of the word "baby", part of research into the development of a system that recognises human voice patterns. Interpretation of voice patterns is a criterion for the development of fifth generation computer systems, where extreme user- friendliness (ie the ability to communicate in natural language) would be a major novel feature. 5th generation computers will have a radically different architecture from existing machines, based on expert systems, very high level programming languages, decentralized processing and Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) microchips.
