I am trying to understand what are the general types of output of a computer.
I assume the following described general types of output are the only ones in the cosmos, but I might be wrong:
- Screened Raw Data: Output such as a document available only to be read but not edited (as when opened with a reading-only "viewer" program)
- Screened Interface: Output such as a document available to be both read and edited (as when opened with a text editor)
- Spatial Change: Output such as the result of a computerized machine, or alternatively, a computer embedded system (such as a robot and maybe also quantum computer or some physical yet non material computer of some sort)
A similar try is defining what are the only possible ways to input data into computer, such as with CLUI, TUI, GUI and possibly other methods.
Is there a consensus among computer scientists and/or UX researchers about what are the general types of output of a computer?
