End of Boolean searches?

In the last part of 3 part series on "The future of Software" interesting comment from IBM research group:

Boolean searches--which require users to learn an arcane vocabulary of "ands," "ors," "nots," and "nears"--are falling by the wayside, says Arthur Ciccolo, department group manager in the research division of IBM and co-leader of the IBM Institute for Search and Text Analysis. "We're at the cusp of a change in all of that."
